To the Irish fan base, I just wanted to say thank you for the hospitality and Craic exhibited by the Irish people when your HBSledgehammer Editor was married, September 9,1998 in St. James Catholic Church, Charlestown, County Mayo, Ireland by Father Liam Cawley…

Slàinte mhor a h-uile là a chi ‘s nach fhaic!

Charlestown Market and one of the many pubs…

We were fortunate enough to spend a few days at Ashford Castle, Cong, Co. Mayo.

Epic shit.

We had arrived in Ireland 1 week after the Omagh Bombing in preparation  for our wedding.

Great timing.

At the end of our stay, we took a train north from Dublin to Belfast.

We stayed in Belfast for a bit before hopping a ferry over to Stranraer, Scotland.

Belfast was quite “colorful ” in it’s own way.

And who doesn’t feel safe with an APC driving down the street..right?

Still…Ireland was far more welcoming and colorful than those

drab fucking Scots across the water…

Perhaps one day we will be fortunate enough to return.

If you are ever in Huntington Beach, I promise the same hospitality and craic you and your countrymen were kind enough to bestow on me.

Coinnigh Ar Ais Ar ais!



Lets thank god things have calmed down over there…
