Things You Need to Know About Ireland's Four Fields
10:50 p.m.: 1. There are TV trucks outside, transmission masts reaching to the heavens, as local broadcasters "capture the scene" in Cleveland Park.

Great idea -- it should be like printing money. I tried to talk to the proprietor, but she asked me how much I would pay her for an interview.
4. The pipe and drum group onstage is really, really good, but there's a huge crush around the bar. At least the lack of furniture makes it a little bit easier to move around.
