Wicklow and Kilkenny

The valley was beautiful. The weather, clear and cool, permitted an impressive view of the surrounding mountains and a brilliant way to spend the day traveling. I especially enjoyed the shepherd’s demonstration with a few sheep and his sheep dog, Mylo.

The city of Kilkenny was also pleasant. I’ve always been a fan of medieval culture, and the city really embodied that. Also, we found a store called Dunnes that sold high quality clothing for practically nothing. I got a t-shirt, sweatpants, and a hoodie for €19.50. The steal of the century, if you ask me.

Regarding the opportunity for DoOrder to expand to a city like Kilkenny, I have two thoughts. First, I want to reiterate that Diane has expressed a vehement aversion to cities in Ireland beyond Dublin. For good reason, too. In my experience, though limited, I’ve seen that the cities aren’t remotely close to Dublin in size. Second, and on the other hand, Kilkenny is a very boutique kind of environment, which theoretically means DoOrder would have a lot of clients. But the city is also very walkable, which I think detracts from the demand for their service.
