Hi Boys and Girls,

Well, I suppose you might have heard about or seen Mrs. Claus’s video – I have decided NOT to return to the North Pole!

I want to continue my holidays and my Irish adventures, everyone has been so kind and friendly.  I’ve so much left to see and do here, I’m not ready to return. I’m sure that Comet or Blitzen can take over my duties for a while. . . of course, they won’t be a patch on me but sure, they’ll do – we can strap a flash light on their heads and they can lead the way. As the Irish say “it’ll be grand”.

Okay, so – can you guess where I went?

  • Third largest county in Ireland
  • The Quiet Man was filmed there
  • Birthplace of Irelands first female president

Yes! That’s right – I googled all those facts!

I’m sure some of you guessed that I am in _______! I wasn’t able to see Shane Filan in Sligo so I thought I’d try see Louis Walsh in _______. Again, no luck – he’s away doing some talent show apparently. I decided to make the most of my time in _______ and I flew up the ‘Reek’ as fast as my hooves could take me. I even lit a candle for Mrs. Claus when I was up there. Wow, its seriously beautiful. The view over Clew Bay is stunning. It was nice to see it in the Summer time as we usually flyover in December and its really dark.

I know it’s not Christmas Eve yet but you can always leave out some carrots for me… or better again, leave out cookies. Santa usually gets all the cookies and I get the “healthy food”.

I won’t tell you where I am going next as I’m sure Mrs. Claus is watching and she’ll tell me to come home – BUT I’ve already packed my bags and am looking at the maps to see where I will go to continue my adventure. If you have any siggestions, you can pop over to our Facebook page and leave a comment.

Chat soon,
