Varied Surroundings

There is more to being human than travelling around the world sampling its many delights, and recent reading has taken me deeper into subjects like philosophy. Though I am a scientist by training, the humanities continue to appeal to me, and various life events have led me to explore them more than otherwise might have been the case. That is now the main thrust of what you find here, along with other things that have a use in navigating life’s journey.

Irish Telephone Area Codes

While there is an entry for Northern Ireland, what you get here are the telephone landline area codes for the Republic of Ireland. To call any of these from overseas, you will need your access (for example, 00), the Irish country code of 353 and to drop the leading zeroes. There was a time when I got a call from an unknown number so I collected these for my own reference. Hopefully, they do the same for you too.
