Hey Crazygirl!!!!

If you try a pie w/all the extras, you damn well better email us a picture!! I had a plain old meat pie one night after lots of Caprioskas (a drink my friend introduced me to at Quay Bar) but even in my altered state, I knew I couldn't stomach mushy peas! Egads! I too have loved guys from SA but that's just too adventurous ;-)

Have fun and bring the laptop, girlfriend! A Mina tale will be much appreciated

Hey there, OWJ!

Yeah, I didn't take a photo the last time I ate a pie there, so I will be sure to take one this go around. And I imagine I will have a story this time, so will be sure to send it to you with the photo attached!

Nice to see you on the boards!

I remember Mina's Ireland trip report - what a killer yarn!

I'm off to see if it's still there - I may get to Ireland again later this year.

There was a mention in the Sydney Morning Herald today that someone has stolen Harry's pie recipe and he has put the matter in the hands of a solicitor. So he must be doing something right!

For anyone looking for photos of Harry's delicacies, check out a review on the second page of this website. There is a picture of a tiger pie and a hot dog with all of the fixings!

Sorry the URL is so long, you will probably have to cut and paste each line into your browser to string it all together.

The url is long enough that it messes up most people's computer screens. Fodors isn't able to parse long strings of characters without spaces.

Time you discovered - and use - www.tinyurl.com. Yours, for example, is now http://tinyurl.com/8e22v

I do know of tinyurl and use it regularly. I was under the impression that the tinyurl links expired after a certain time (90 days), which would not be useful for a site like this. I guess I was wrong, sorry.

What a useful piece of information, Gardyloo -- I had never heard of that site until just now. I reckon it's worth bookmarking for future use! Many thanks!
