A weekend of hot air

We’re travelling later this evening from home in Sligo to Tullamore, Co Offaly for the Phoenix Festival. Lots of hot air balloons will be gliding silently in the skies – the weather forecast looks great for the weekend. 

My last close encounter with a hot air balloon was nearly 10 years ago, north-east of West
Chester, PA on Route 202 while on a few days visit with SMS (now Siemens
Medical Solutions
) in Malvern. Something went awry as the pilot had to
ditch the basket just beside a highway exit.

All this hot air ballooning will probably mean missing the Connacht Final
between Mayo and Galway in McHale Park, Castlebar – I thought it was
the following week. After the performance against Leitrim a few weeks back though, I’m not too hopeful of Mayo chances.
