Tripping Along The Ledge



Tripping Along the Ledge is about to embark upon a few days sabbatical. My plans for the long weekend can best be understood by watching this short educational film. In answer to some questions you may have: Yes, yes, obviously and yes… Right down to the white socks and pasty legs. Enjoy!

    Gotta love that that children’s Casio keyboard horn section.

    Makes me proud to be from Longford.

    I’ve never seen anything better than this in my life.

    I’m intrigued by Nerney’s retirement plans – a permanent, mobile hooley marching inexorably to the equator. He’s “sure there’ll be plenty of fun.” Where in… Somalia? East Timor? Columbia?

  5. Eoin Says:

    @ El Kid – that’s actually an interesting point. Nerney hosts an annual Hooley in the Sun for his fans in Santa Ponsa, off the east coast of Spain. So I suppose, the most obvious route would be for him to charter a ferry from there to El-Jazair, Algeria.

    The Longford singing sensation would then lead his conga line south across the Sahara desert, around the Gulf of Guinea, through Nigeria and Cameroon and on to the tiny equatorial country of Gabon.

    Wikipedia says “the small population together with abundant natural resources and foreign private investment have helped make Gabon one of the most prosperous countries in the region” – so score on that front. Should deliver “plenty of fun” in that case.

    However, given the distances involved and the terrain, probably safe to assume they’ll be arriving “later” rather than “sooner”.

    Sunny terrain, you might say.
