I was googling irish gps roadmaps for the satnav in the Subaru and remembered a wee joke.Have you heard of the Irish satnav? As soon as you enter your destination, it tells you in a lilting voice, "Ah, shure, I wouldn't start from here ..." I know silly ehh. You think that is bad well how about the preist who is driving along the road and gets stopped for speeding. The policeman smells alcohol on the priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.

He says, ‘Sir, have you been drinking?’
‘Just water,’ says the priest.
The trooper says, ‘Then why do I smell wine?’
The priest looks at the bottle and says, ‘Good Lord! He’s done it again!’

If I buy a house needing work done in Eire I'm kinda woried about the local builders Paddy and Mick they were nailing up the side of a wooden house.

Mick noticed that Paddy was examining the nails and throwing away every second and third.
'What's wrong with the nails?' he asked.
'Sure the heads are at the wrong end.'
'You are stupid you idiot, can't you see they are for the other side of the house!. It gets worse and wores ehh blinkin heck I'm typing Irish and not there yet.

The deposit got paid on the house yesterday so its officially sold :) we got $632,000 which is above average for the village so I'm chuffed and it should mean being morgage free in Eire :)
