IrelandFilter: My girlfriend and I are going on a trip to Ireland tomorrow. We will be arriving in Dublin and making our way with a tour group along the southern coast to the West coast of Ireland. What do I need to know about local customs, culture, etc. to not piss off the locals, not appear like a typical American, etc.? [more inside]

I'd like to sing some good Irish songs with a bunch of kids (I play the guitar) to have them learn something about Irish culture. Could you point at some meaningful, beautiful, traditional Irish songs ? (Tabs, melody, lyrics and background resources welcomed).

Will rain do any damage to my pea coat? I'm going to Ireland next month and I expect I'll get caught in the rain a time or two. Will the rain do any harm to my pea coat that's labeled "80% wool, 15% polyester, 5% other"?

I recently read an article
and in it the author references a t-shirt popular in Ireland in the early 90s captioned, "Just in Casey," with a picture of a condom on it. I've tried finding a picture of this shirt but to no avail. My google-fu is lacking. A place where I could purchase it would be excellent but I would be content with a picture.

Ireland travelers: Anyone have success using Ireland's local taxi services to travel distance of about 50 miles to save time and enjoy a different journey? Is it a doable thing or is the Irish cost structure just too high to permit that as an option?

I'm trying to track down a book which was written in the last 25 years (or so) about an American couple who inherited a house in the west of Ireland.
The culture shock and concomitant problems involved with relocation, the house, the weather the people, etc. almost brings them to the point of divorce with each blaming the other for the decision to move.
I've searched high and low but could only come up with a similar tome about an Australian couple.
Thanks very much for any help.

Is this a reasonable time line for a visit in Ireland?
We plan to bus the first four days then rent a car.
4/25 Arrival 8:35am Dublin Castle & Guiness Brewery
4/26 check out sites in Dublin / Cathedral / Kells / St Stephens Park
4/27 Drive west - stop Trim - end in Galway
4/28 Galway - explore Cliffs
4/29 Drive up to Belfast stop in Monaghan
4/30 Belfast - giants causeway - bushmills
4/31 Derry Belfast or drive south to Monaghan
5/1 Monaghan drive back to Dublin
5/2 N+N fly out 11:50am - Museum, Jameson
Let me know if I am rushing it too much or skipping anything vital.
If you have any cheap accommodations in Belfast or Dublin too that'd be great.
