“That would be very dangerous wouldn’t it Paddy?’
“Yes but at least you would get clearer photos; 120 feet is just too high up.’
“I can operate the camera gear so that we get the best possible shots said Paddy.’
“Okay you’re on; can you drive us to Shannon tomorrow?’
“No problem what time.’
“Say nine o’clock; we can come back and have some lunch around one o’clock.’
“If you are buying then I’ll be eating’ said Paddy with a grin.’
“I can drive you all into Dublin tonight if you like; there’s always some good music playing and plenty of the black stuff to be drank.’
“Look Paddy; I want everyone sober tomorrow.’
“Oh sure ting’ Jim lad.’
“Je dois pendre une douce said Monique to Selene.’
“Oui; we have to have a shower and change first said the two girls.’
“We brought a clean dress with us in case the weather changed and some clean underwear.’
Okay said Jim looking decidedly embarrassed as Monique held up a pair of cami- knickers.
Right shall we say six thirty out here then?’
“Oui, that will be fine James.’ The men headed off to their rooms across the hall from the girls.’
Both men showered before putting on their clothes again. They were unable to have a wet shave though because they had forgotten their razors; they asked Paddy if they could borrow his electric shaver and he brought it out of the glove compartment of his car.
“Are you two on the pull then?’ because if not I’m cutting in.’
Rob told Paddy that he was after Monique. What about the tall one asked Paddy.’
“Feel free mate;
“What you’re not interested in her?’ are you mad?’ she’s bloody gorgeous.’
“It’s her not me Paddy I don’t think she’s interested in men?’
“What you mean she’s a….
“Afraid so mate.’
“What a bloody waste; just my luck to see a beautiful woman and she turns out to be a bloody lesbian.’
Never mind Paddy; I’m sure there is plenty lasses in Dublin dying to get you into their bed.’
“You’re not wrong there now lads.’
The two women came out again wearing dresses and black high heeled shoes. Both had put up their hair and were looking simply beautiful.’
Paddy got into his car and Rob joined him up front whilst the others got into the back of the car. The black Ford prefect had a top speed of eighty miles an hour and Paddy drove it like a maniac along all the country roads when they reached the village Paddy dropped them all off at O’Donoghue’s bar restaurant.
“Right then I will see you all around eight o’clock when you have all eaten.’
“I recommend the steak and ale pie in there it’s very nice.
“Tell Gracie that Paddy sent you.’
They crossed the road to the pub that had two entrances one on the left the other on the right. There was an alley in between. Jim tried the one to the left and it was the restaurant.
