Bagpiping through Supermarkets

A couple of my IFSA-Butler pals and I went down and spent a night and day in Westport in county Mayo a couple weekends ago. It was really lovely – we rented bikes and went on a path called the Greenway, all through the countryside. We saw so many sheep and little lambs. We went all the way to the next town, Newport, and back – 14 miles total! For someone who probably hasn’t really ridden a bike since I was twelve, it was a bit rough on my legs, but so beautiful that it was totally worth it.



We stopped in at the local supermarket before we were going to get back on our bus to Galway, when all of a sudden, this bagpiping, drumming band came marching right through the place. It was a surreal experience.
