If you are reading this, you might want to hoist a glass at some point to Pascal, owner of O’Brien’s. One of Rosscarbery’s three pubs, O’Brien’s sits high on the main square. Pascal has owned it for about six years. Anyway, the six of us drifted in there around 11 Saturday morning only because we hoped someone might be able to point us in the direction of a place to get the voltage converter needed to keep John’s laptop up and running here in Ireland. While our pints of Guinness were setting, Pascal produced two converters. Then he filled us in on particulars of road bowling, a sport that we are eager to see while here. “It’s like you’re the concierge of Rosscarbery,’’ Ali said to Pascal. Indeed, were it not for Pascal, this blog would have been in deep peril.
