What a lovely smile....Just setting off to Athlone on Friday, 13th November, 2009. Captain Paul will be participating in the Inter-Provincial Bridge Championships scheduled for Athlone on Saturday//Sunday. Plan A is to reach Athlone circa 4pm on Friday evening and moor up outside the lock until Saturday morning. The return trip is scheduled to depart Athlone on Sunday @ 15.00 with the expectation of at least reaching Shannonbridge, and possibly making it to Banagher, by Sunday evening. We got lucky, big time, both on the outward and return trips!
