This week we bring you a pre-covid transport tale featuring the almost now forgotten horror that was Brexit from Tommy:
"I thought it would be appropriate for my transport tale to be Irish related. One of my favourite train journeys I've ever been on was going from Limerick to Dublin via Galway back in 2019. On the first train from Limerick to Galway, and at Gort a gentleman got on and sat next to me. I can't remember what he asked me to start the conversation, but once he found out I was English we immediately started a conversation about Brexit. At the start, I was dreading it as I had a horrific headache - but for somebody who I rudely stereotyped as an Irish country bumpkin from County Clare, he was incredibly well informed and had very interesting viewpoints and opinions. The conversation from Gort to Galway ended up taking my mind off my headache and was the highlight of my time in Ireland. For me, it showed the best of Ireland and highlighted why the best way to see a country, is to meet the people and learn about it. Love Shed No. 2 - it's going to be my g place for birthday and Christmas presents!"
