STTI was planning to lay this run with RICK O'SHEA who, according to legend,knows the area. However, RICK O'SHEA was on call and had to leave just as STTI was departing with bag of flour. This left STTI to lay the run solo and with a map (and we all know that Irish maps are purposely vague in order to outfox the British and Viking invaders. Hashers are easily outfoxed .... just lay an FT).
There was time at the beginning of the run for STITCH and LOUIS COPELAND to fog up the insides of the windows in the car (and, says STITCH, to cut down the bush so they could see the view over the city ... LOUIS went about asking people if they could see Croke Park ....
We had visitors on honeymoon from Treasure Coast HHH Florida ... all expecting a BBQ .... which was not to be. They had long names so that they got good value from the necklaces ... MEGATRON something and KINDER BALL somethingelse. We went up to a stone circle at the beginning of the run and STITCH was almost persuaded to get inside one of the tombs (but was prevented by the amount of empty beer cans inside).
STTI then talked to the hash after waiting a while for stragglers to arrive ... the weather was such that nobody wanted to hang around too long. (Consequently CHICK MAGGOT arrived after the hash had left). STTI had some very complicated instructions involving "large t*ts", "J" and "W" as well as the usual FT ... there was a feeling that the trail was going to be unusual.
At the start, the trail looked as though it was going to be normal ... a trail beside the pylons, and FT, a walk through the woods etc. However, things began to get interesting after the first "W" was found ... what did this mean, ... walkers trail? STTI encouraged the pack to carry on and the trail hen headed up the hill through the bracken to an FT with a HV. We all went down to the check and then on to the "J" where we all turned round and went back following the "W" signs.
The Big Ts? Well, these turned out to be two piles of gravel which were piled beside the track ... all the was missing was a workman's brassier or brazier?
Back at the cars, there was a circle with WEDGIE without robe but wearing the hash lab coat!! Te circle was just started when the rain came in so it was therefore very evident that the snitches stopped and the hash waitress stopped opening cans, A quick Swing Low and we were drove down to Three Rock (avoiding WEDGIE who was behaving like a tourist) for a few drinks (or a pot of tea, if you're a driver!).
