Mother’s Day has got me thinking: When is your country a Motherland and when is it a Fatherland?
You see for me Ireland is my mother’s land… does that count?
Now there are also mythical figures who come to represent countries: I’m one of Jock Tamson’s Bairns as a Scottish-type person www.visitscotland.com.
And Wales, by, I don’t know: Tom Jones www.visitwales.com.
The Grand Sam
And the French The Boat D’Azur https://www.google.ie/amp/s/us.france.fr/en/news/article/about-atout-france-0/amp I guess that madamoiselle who bears her breast on the rampants.
Now all of this has been sparked by some nudges towards offers for Mother’s Day.
The InterContinental in my own stomping ground of Dublin 4 have a Mother’s Day Sunday lunch for €50pp.
Their Classic Afternoon Tea is €40pp and Champagne Afternoon Tea is €55pp.
And for a reprise on why the InterCon in Dublin’s Rugbyland, and particularly in Six Nations season, is the place to go… The InterCon… what a Ledge!
And visit https://www.intercontinental.com/hotels/gb/en/dublin/dblic/hoteldetail?fromRedirect=true&qSrt=sBR&qIta=99583724&icdv=99583724&qSlH=DBLIC&setPMCookies=true&qSHBrC=IC&qDest=Simmonscourt%20Road,%20Dublin,%20IE&dp=true&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIw8ja47P75wIVg7HtCh25zgfyEAAYASAAEgJd8vD_BwE&srb_u=1 for best rates.
Or maybe Mum likes the sun… my Mum got as brown as a berry. And if so I’d always recommend the Canaries.
Cassidy www.cassidytravel.ie have a four-night break in Lanzarote from €275pps fot three sharing.
And that means getting on with a sibling… well, just today for your Mum!
