Ireland

Annual visit home to see the wee mammy and do a bit of camping round some of our favourite places in the west of Ireland. Believe it or not, absolutely nothing at all went wrong with Herman on the entire trip, including 200 odd mile drive to and from Scotland, at either end.

Here is the obligatory selection of Herman’s holiday snaps. As ever, they are chosen for the fact Herman’s managed to get his ugly mug into shot, rather than for any artistic merit.
