Okay, not yet, but soon. According to this article in today's (London) Times, Ireland will soon be having much colder weather. That means my house, nestled snugly in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains, will soon be next door to ski trails etc.
Okay, I admit, mediocre ski trails - the "Mountains" are not all that big. More like hills. Still, maybe skiers from London can be enticed over to rent out my 'lodge' for a weekend of skiing and night-life in Dublin (only 15 miles from here).
I can smell the money already. Almost as good as a mobile strip club and without the slimy trappings.
