I watched those, too, Palaisglide, ITV3 being my favourite channel. Bit bored, though, having watched them before. So i tend to agree with your rant.
Highland Jeannie, I think your rant was quite restrained under the circumstances! My sympathies.
Swiss Sue, having toured Ireland some years ago, it was very beautiful. It did rain quite a bit, even more than in Wales, where I live, so taking a brolly would probably be a good idea! I learnt why Ireland is called the Emerald Isle - all that rain makes the grass grow! The people were charming and friendly - except for the guy who tried to pick my husband's pocket in Dublin. Hubby put his hand in his back pocket - and found another hand in there. He gripped a finger tightly but the guy twisted out of his grasp and disappeared into the crowd. We still liked Dublin though - it had a really good atmosphere, relaxed and friendly.
