Bank Holiday

Just about to set off down the road to Dublin again... nominally a day late, although it's because we were off today. There's something good about having a Bank Holiday at the end of October - the Irish have got some things right!

Today was spent with a bit of a lie-in, and then off to Belfast with me ma... her urgently needing things that couldn't be got elsewhere, and me just having a look about the bookshops (surprise surprise!)...

So while Union College and the rest of Queen's University Belfast are embarking on a reading week, it's off back down to Dublin tonight as classes start again tomorrow at Dublin University, Trinity College.

Tomorrow is also Reformation Day, being the 489th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg Cathedral. Hallelujah for the Reformers! Sadly we neglected (by forgetting) the passing of the 451st anniversary of the marytrdom of the Bishops Latimer and Ridley earlier in the month (16th October 1555)... But they did indeed light a candle that day for the reformation in England.
