Phew! Quite an event. We left Bray/Dublin early this morn. crossed Co. Monaghan(Hello John :-))Probs started at the border, not for us, who have EU-passports. but I had no idea, that Rafiq only possesses a lebanese passport, which made a major terror alert to the Royal Army, who searched my car so thoroghly, that I wonder the car has it´s motor still in place. Gosh, do they really think, some teenagers carry bombs or stuff for Al-Quaeda or, being catholic, for the Real IRA. To top this, Rafiq had to get a visa to get to Northern Ireland, even though he has a permanent visa for the EU! So far for Union! Laters Pilgrim...Any comments?
