The Curragh Races and a dog!

 The Curragh Races was great fun for the children, as always. They spent an hour in the playground, had their faces painted, even Spud had shamrock painted on his cheek. They went on the bouncy castles and had cornettos. We also had lunch in the Champagne Bar! Posh, eh! I had a Caesar Salad and the others had fries, Seafood Chowder and a Smoked Chicken and bacon Caesar Salad. I had a glass of white wine and lemonade (driving) and the girls had diet coke, Spud had his beloved milk.

 We got great close ups of the horses at the Starting Line. The jockey here, winking at me is J.A.Heffernan. He rode Vox Populi in the last race…

And even met two of the jockeys!

On the way home, we picked up a stray and named him ‘Tiny’

 The poor little thing was so grubby. His bottom fur was mangled with poo, his eyes were all gungy and he was so hungry. I have vowed I will keep him till his owner shows or till we find a new home for him. He’s a cute little lamb dog and I’d love to have him, but it’s not the perfect situation with 4/5 children and holiday care to think about…
