Mary Ann Furendi and Rick May are back from a five-day "pub-crawl" in Ireland. After stops in Dublin to see Trinity College and the Book of Kells they moved on to Clonmacnoise in County Offaly.

They sampled and enjoyed the local cuisine and especially the "brew." Both agreed that Guinness really does taste better in Erin.
