We have a old friend who visits from Liverpool every year. He’s planning to come down to Dorset (ie Slugger central) again this November. However, he won’t be taking his usual direct route to by Virgin Trains. He’ll be flying from Liverpool to Dublin to Bournemouth. It’ll be cheaper and it’ll get him a lot quicker. He reminded me too of the campaign to restore the Liverpool Irish Centre.
