I arrived in Shannon, Ireland last Thursday (August 28th) morning and from the plane I was already in awe of the green scenery. Paddy met me at the airport and first thing took me to Bunratty Castle. Across the road from the castle is a pub called Durty Nelly's. And he told me "Mac" on Always Sunny in Philadelphia often wears a t-shirt from this pub on the show!
Once we got to Limerick we met Steve Spade (producer and magician) for lunch. Then we went on a walk around town where they showed me St. Munchin's church and cemetery, King John's castle, River Shannon and so much more. It's a magical town. A dream come true to see this kind of architecture in the flesh.
Our screening was that evening in this beautiful venue, Cellar Door. Literally in a cellar. Adorned with vintage furniture and candlelight. The place was packed and CALL GIRL received the most exciting and flattering reaction I've ever seen. They laughed and screamed!!
Afterwards, I did an interview with the Emerald Gore Society. It was lovely to meet the entire crew. I am excited to share that video with you all when it is posted!
And then everyone from ENSNARED and the screening showed me how Ireland parties and I could not keep up. We went to three bars, running from closing time. And topped the night off with some gyros- not the best.

The Murphy's took me to their home. A short drive outside of Limerick along the river, with gorgeous hills behind their house and a mountain in the distance. It looks like a fairly tale. We went on a walk down the river, where Paddy shot ENSNARED. It was awesome. The perfect end to my trip to Ireland.
I wish I could have stayed a few more days.
