Day 5 of the tour - Northern Ireland!

Greg James | 15:32 UK time, Friday, 24 July 2009

Today's destination was Strabane in Northern Ireland!  I recieved the phonecall from Chris this morning whilst I was at Manchester Aiport.  The flight was at 7:45 and 30 mins later, I was in Belfast.  Quick drive to Strabane to meet the lovely Rioghnach (pronounced Ree-owner) who had just finished her GCSEs and was saving some money to go to a summer college in a few weeks and go back to 6th form in September.

She works at Strabane Play Club for kids aged between 4 and 14 to keep them amused during the summer.  It's a lovely and friendly set up there and the kids were good laugh.  I was instructed by Jo Whiley to teach them 'Poker Face' by Lady GaGa and 'Boom Boom Pow' by The Black Eyed Peas'.  Both tasks completed and enjoyed actually! 

I'm now sitting in the excellent BBC Radio Ulster studios in Belfast about to go on air for the final time this week...

Here are a few photos from today:
