A Trip to Da Gorls, Monkstown Farm, County Dublin, Ireland - 4th August 2018

The first part of an epic tour of Europe (well, Ireland and France at least) sees the gang over in Monkstown Farm in County Dublin, to hang out with Evelyn and Louise whilst doing a couple of days of the Beatyard Festival in nearby Dun Laoghaire.
