Hi Lotty
Ryanair I use regularly - You can bring a small case as hand luggage but be careful of size (dimensions on the site)
You can book on http://www.ryanair.com
U2U me if you need any more details

I can't make it to the meeting. I'm going to a collector's fair for cycling and football items.

Maybe next year if it's not at the same period.

Dublin SATURDAY 16th October 2010

I had a meeting this morning with Goldcrest and Chrissybaby to organise a schedule and walking tour for the Dublin Meeting (Great Postcard Shops and Craic etc) - Don't forget Dublin on 16th October and check out those Ryanair and Aer Lingus flights and for those in Wales the ferries.
