Some St Pats parade somewhere meant an alternate route had to be made,
Shannonside Willie says he had to cross through 7 counties to get to Inniskeen. Roscommon throwing the kitchen sink at Monaghan, but the home side have drawn away to lead by 4 points at ht.
Willie probably went via Naas.
Nevertheless I got the impression that traveling through 7 different counties was a big deal for Willie.
St. Patrick's Day was Friday ffs. Even if he was was coming from Cork he would have to go out of his way to go through 7 counties. The man's mad of course - but nice mad.
I didn't write St Patrick's day
A St Patrick's Parade, held on a Sunday, meant he had to take a detour, once he hit the road block outside some town
Some of you Mayo people exist to make Rossies appear smart.
I was only rippin the piss out of Willie!!
That's still some detour or some big town. A 7 county detour would have taken him around Tokyo.
The middle of Ireland is all a bit of a muddle to me. If he hit a road block outside some town and had to backtrack, he could be counting the same county twice. He starts out of Roscommon then via Athlone to Westmeath, Longford, Cavan Then he goes on the Monaghan ring road which cuts though Fermanagh into Monaghan, then enters dangerous bandit territory in Armagh before coming back in to Monaghan again.
He might have missed the turn off to Inniskeen and before turning back he decided to stop at that pub which serves a nice pint near Hackballscross and that's in Louth.
There you are.
All in all, that would a normal enough trip for a thirsty wild untamed westerner on a day out, with a microphone in his inside pocket.
