Kilkenny

So I booked my train tickets for the weekend. I should be able to get down early and will hopefully have sorted out the accomodation/deposits by the time you all arrive. Most likely I'll be in some local tavern so give me a call as and when you arrive. I should be on the half four train down and I've booked the 18:48 home on Sunday.

If you're booking online for Sunday I'll be in seat C44. The secret codes will be posted to you anon.

Fierce organised so ya are! I'm still not sure if it'll be bus or train.. but train does sound nicer and less stressful on Fri evening especially. hmmm

What's more, you get yourself a weekender id card for €7 in any ticket office, just bring in a passport photo. This will bring down the price of a return ticket from €29 to €20 and is valid for such deals for a year.

ok backtrack a small bit? You get a what!! That sounds great - I have an ID for something at the house, but I've never heard of this!

Weekender ID - €7. Must find passport photo :)

Will it be valid for one weekend or for a number of weekends?

Basically you get one of these ID's which is valid for a year. Then you can get discounted rates on all weekend travel. By weekend travel they mean leaving on Fri/Sat/Sun and returning before that Tuesday.

So the card will get you discounted tickets any weekend but those tickets will only be valid for travel that weekend. The discount received even for just this one ticket is greater than the price of the card itself so if you happen to have a passport photo it's a pretty good deal.

Cheers for the heads up on that. Will have a better idea tomorrow what time I can get outta here at, (work in the equation), but hoping to get down as early as poss.

Finished here now so I'm gonna be able to make the half four down too so will hopefully see you on that.

Will probably take the earlier train home on Sunday though, 15:18.

Catch ya later.

I wonder if I printed off photos of myself on good quality card and cut them to size of passport photos, would it do for the weekend card ID?! Hmmm

Will see you all down there, I think it'll be the 6.30pm train for me.

Any one else getting it?!

I imagine that would work Tracy and in any case, nothing ventured..
