hi I haven't posted much on the site but I've always checked in. I've had dp constantly for 5 years now, don't think it'll ever go away, andy's website(the one that preceded this) practically saved my life. Just wondering if anyone here's from ireland too, or if anyone knows of anyone from here, be great to chat/meet up face to face with someone. Thanks :D

No, but I was there just a few weeks ago! Went to the west, including Inisheer, the island that is supposed to be Craggy Island on Father Ted. It was awesome; just needs a few more grey rocks and blackberry bushes. We hope to go again next year. Where do you live?

Not from Ireland but I ate at an Irish Pub here today,, 2 Pints of Guiness and Irish Stew, with the most tender Lamb you ever put in your mouth.. Oh it was good... I hope one day to get over this crap and me and my wife come to Ireland to see the land her Grandmother was born upon.

I have dreamed about it for years but because of this crap I haven't done it yet.

Hate to say it but I think the opposite is true...Do it and see how much better you feel afterwards. That's what I've been told, and in most cases it's true.

You are probably right.... I have been told the same thing.... It just doesn't seem possible to enjoy something when every thing looks alien.. you know? But Maybe you're right.

I have to agree with MrMole. My daughter and I went right after my testosterone fiasco re-opened the door for my DR. Even unreal-looking, England/Ireland were totally awesome! Brain fog made driving more of a challenge than it otherwise might have been (I needed every bit the insurance I bought), but even that was a blast after 30 minutes or so.

Man, what I wouldn't do for a black pudding breakfast right now. Anyone know if that stuff can be ordered online and shipped?

Here's what you can do.

Go outside, and scrape up all the crap you can find in the gutter - really go nuts. Leaves, shoes, animals, stones, hubcaps, the lot. Boil it for at least 20 years - that's the black puddding sorted. Add sawdust for texture. Serve with cold beans, charcoal that was formerly a sausage, bacon you could cut diamonds with, and an egg that's only ever seen a canary, and there you have it - an authentic, English cafe breakfast experience.

For garnish, you may use Richmond Superking *** ash, eyelashes, plasters, and rat poision.

Bon appetite.

Hubcaps! I KNEW I had left out an ingredient last time! I don't think I let it go the full 20 years, either. The smell was making me too hungry.

'Bacon you could cut diamonds with...'! :lol: :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol: I find those off a Vauxhall Nova give the 'best' flavour.

Also available: The "Trraaacccaaay Tiffaannny and Hayyyyleeeeey" soundtrack compilation, to give it thatauthentic feel. Comes with free 3 x table leg extenders and automated 'tea' spiller. The term tea is open to interpretation.

We don't have Vauxhall over here, so I used the ones of my old ('62) Plymouth Valiant. I figure that with the asbestos dust from the brake linings, this pudding should really "go to 11".

Re: "Trraaacccaaay Tiffaannny and Hayyyyleeeeey" - Huh??? :?: :?: :?:

What is this thread about? I've lost track.

Hate to come in a bit late, but I do have a story of a breakfast we had in Ireland. To begin with, what's wrong with ice and what's up with warm milk? But on to black pudding. We all got our plates and saw this black stuff kind of in a ball shape and someone finally asked..."What this?", to which the waitress said, "Oh that's black pudding", to which we said, "Oh, what's that?", to which she said...Oh, that'd be pig's blood." :shock:

Now that is a true story. So, was she just giving us a hard time or what?

The only reason I would cross the ocean again is to go back to Ireland. We did none of the tourist things, stayed mostly in B and B's and hit every pub that had a Guiness sign outside. Not being a beer drinker, Bailey's was my drink of choice. I did oh so love that "chocolate milk".

Anyway, wonderful country and people. Absolutely wonderful.

She was giving you a hard time. It's boiled-down i.e. clotted pigs blood, mixed, I think, with barley and rice and maybe pepper, and shoved in an intestine or plastic casing.

Remember on the Beverly Hillbillies or Hee Haw when they used to talk about what was for supper? It's a lot like that.

Terri*, black pudding is a specifically English 'dish', not that I'm proud to say it. A good old English working class, er, meal. As Tom Servo said, it's basically clotted pigs blood with oats, usually served as an appetiser before a hearty (attack) breakfast of lard, grease, fat and eggs. It's one of those things that's delicious for as long as you are ignorant about what is in it. Like Haggis (don't ask), or a Big Mac.

But yes, Ireland is a wonderful country. Bloody cold, but nice regardless.

Cornwall eh? Say no more. Explains everything. :D
