‘Tis week saw th’ announcement ‘o our band ‘o pirates ‘n Princesses cannon ball fer th’ Saturday nightfall ‘o IMM 2017. So dust off th’ costumes ‘n get them packed fer a nightfall ‘o debauchery!

Just remember to live by th’ rules:

  1. Each person may own only one scurvy pirate costume.
  2. One must drink ‘spiced rum whenever wearin’ a scurvy pirate costume.
  3. Scurvy pirate costumes may never be washed, unless th’ scurvy pirate jumps into a natural body ‘o rum while wearin’ th’ costume.
  4. If three band ‘o pirates high-five to a rule, then it becomes law fer all band ‘o pirates at all future scurvy pirate-nights.
  5. Scurvy pirate laws may never be made up while not dressed as band ‘o pirates.


Right that’s enough of that! These posts are hard enough to put together without that jibberish!!


It was one of those weeks that saw steady progress on items without being entirely interesting. Wednesday evening saw a meeting of Joe, Joe, Martin and Mary to finalise the Event Management Plan for the event. This is one of the more important documents for the running of large events in Ireland. It all adds to the safety and enjoyment of everyone when attending the event.

Along with this, saw the rules for the event being drawn up. While we wont publish these just yet, they will be included in the event program that you will all receive upon entering and registering for the event. These will outline the rules of the IMM and are similar to previous IMM’s. We will have a couple that are particular to our site, and the fact that Westport House and Gardens is a historic venue. All in good time.

Sunday last, saw Aidan and Neil Kilbane rack up the miles planning the economy run around the idyllic Wild Atlanic Way. As you will quickly find out, we have some fearless, weathered sheep in the west of Ireland, so dont be surprised if they stay exactly where they were as you zoom by in your Mini!


Our Fearless Leader…..


February 15th, the day after all the roses and what not…, saw the birthday of this cube:


If anyone knows his whereabouts or finds him wandering the countryside, please return him to us here at the IMM 2017  in Westport.

As for his mate, well lets hope he finds a better hat for the Pirates and Princesses Ball.
