Load In - Slane Castle

Managed to get out into Dublin for an hour before heading to Slane. I enjoyed this, as it made me feel semi-human for a little while. Found some great bookshops and was tempted by a first edition of poems Louis MacNiece from the 30's. Managed to resist, though, settling for an edition of 'Gulliver's Travels' from the Communist bookshop on Temple Bar.

Tonight was the camera rehearsal down at Slane. We had a couple of hours with all the cameras up and running, making endless notes about what needed to be tweaked. Bruce and I worked into the night again, going through set, programming, adjusting, and so it goes on.
