Only some spots are pay and others you need permit. The sports one is pay and so is the one beside Centra, that's it I think.

I will probably head later, aiming to go to the talk though so leave UCD at like 4? I am driving and have space

I can drive, but will be leaving after work, so unless there are a few people going that late, I might put my boat in the van and get the train there and a lift back.

So the plan is boathouse for 10.00 on Friday morning, aim to leave by 10.30. Drive straight to Spiddal for a run of the Boluisce. Probably getting on the water around 14.00. Finishing there around 16.00. Drive back to Spanish arch and if time allows freesytle practice on the Corrib. Who wants a lift in the van?

If I park my car on campus on Friday, do I need a permit or can I just pay for parking?

I believe there is paid parking for 3 euro per day, although unknown if you can find it. Might be easier for someone to transfer their permit to you for the day if someone has one. It's pretty straight forward.

Or park in Drumbeg and get Greg to give you a lift into UCD

I'll give the transport office a call around 14.00 tomorrow to see if the van is still available for rental. Hard to guess exactly what the snow will do.

Im guessing Galway fest will still be going ahead. Anyone anything to say on the likely hood of that changing?

Think they'll be changing a bit of the schedule... But not cancelling. Keep an eye on the Galway Fest Facebook page

I phoned UCD transport to cancel van booking. Kind of glad I'm not driving a van up snow back roads in Spideal tomorrow.

Wonder if now that's it's postponed that they could possibly have more entries...?

Hey champs! We have 6 beds going in our accommodation due to people not being able to make the new date, give me a shout if you want to take advantage if this limited time offer! Full cost would be €45 per night.

Oh cool thanks Andy. Were not 100% sure on numbers yet but probably closer to 10 so we'll see if we can get some place that fits all of us first

no worries, ye can probably take it and divide the cost down a bit between ye, its a 6 bed apartment. so there is a bit of freedom for some people to take sleeping bags etc.
