Spacepig, Gingerlily,
An interesting idea, from the North might come Smitty, Huck, seasicktim and me. Would like to hear from nozerners, er?

hmmm, sounds like there might be enough of us to make it a possibility...

I've wanted to revisit Ireland for decades! Could be an added bonus.

I'm not being funny, it's something I really don't know: do I need a passport to visit Ireland?

When I came back from the uk on sunday we had to go through passport control, so you may well do. Not sure about the ferry though.

Technically you may not need a passport to travel from england to ireland if you are an EU citizen, but you need to be able to prove that you ARE an EU citizen, which is where the passport is needed.

Somewhere within striking distance of Belfast, Cork or Dublin (alphabetical order, no prejudices here) would be very tempting. Wouldn't mind skipping Knock or Shannon as they're not well served from here.

Well I would be in favour of Dublin obviously, but Belfast or Cork is easy to get to by train. If expensive...

Cork is obviously my favoured spot for geographical reasons. Well, that and because I can persuade my local hostelry to provide a few enticing extras. But, it is at the furthest spot in the country from anywhere approaching civilisation so I gotta be realistic.

Passport to Ireland? Technically - yes. Definitely if you fly over. Coming by ferry, not so much of an issue and if you go to Belfast then travel down by train - no. But it is a long long journey that way.

Oh dear, my last passport expired in 1982 and I can't afford 77 on top of the travel costs, specially as I'd probably never use it again. :-(

A customer says:
you don't need a passport for the ferry you just need photo id like a drivers licence, airplane I think you do but maybe get away with drivers licence, you'd have to check. My partner has neither and used an irish age proof card on the ferry plenty times

Lez Lee says:
I don't have a driving licence either, perhaps my bus pass and birth certificate would be OK.

Spacepig says:
Whatever you do, don't book a flight if you don't have (or intend to get) a passport. You will only be turned away at check in. Ryanair do cheap flights (OK, the cheap bit could well be disputed once you have added on all the luxury extras like tickets, seats, checking in etc) to Ireland. But you won't even be able to book it without a passport.

You can pick up a Scottish passport at your local Hey Jimmy shop, Lez.

OK Mondo, that's enough to put me off attending for a start.

Thats wonderful stuff Mondo - you should put it on the Jukebox Jury thread.

Forgive my gate-crashing, but as you're speaking of posters in Ireland, what happened to post Soviet? He posted on other forums as well, and I miss his brand of humour. I hope he's come to no harm.

Lez Lee, if it really does come down to an Irish PPU, there's a local company that does bargain coach/ferry runs from Galway, through Athlone & Dublin to Holyhead. Let me know if anything comes of this and I'll check into it if you like.

Post Soviet is here Monica, look at the first post on this page, he is there with us.

And you aren't gate crashing by the way, anyone is welcome.

Pah! Be off with you PS! One of the oldest tricks in the book. Monica indeed! :)

It's a fair cop, Liquidator. But you'd an unfair advantage because you obviously know the meaning of Russian word 'monyakaya'.

Glad to hear it he's alive and well. But, no, anyone whose idea of rocking is introducing a few bars of cello backing in a recording of a singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarist's gritty/heartfelt/etc./etc. plaint is a gate-crasher. Ta for replying, you lot.

Sadly monica, in typical schoolboy fashion, I never got beyond the Russian word for hat, and how funny it looks when written down, particularly to those with zero knowledge of the Cyrillic alphabet :)

Is this going to be a Russian PPU then? I have a Russian friend, so I can take lessons if needed...
