One father is more than a hundred Schoolmasters.
Fathers Day Quote by: George Herbert, Outlandish Proverbs, 1640

This is one of the many quotes you will hear this  weekend in appreciation of all the great Dads as we celebrate Fathers Day.

Its hard not to feel a little sorry for all the Dads.
Mothers get flowers, chocolates , breakfast in bed and spa vouchers.
Too often and lets be honest the Dads get handkerchiefs, ties and socks but all the same we still have a real fondness for these great guys.

So what makes your Dad awesome or what is your favourite Dad story ?

He will tell you you are  a great driver even when you failed to start the car for the 4th attempt in a driving lesson.

He has an abundance of proverbs such as "Never Refuse Tea or Money".

He will give you a lift when he could easily have said get the bus.

He is a DIY expert.

The time (or many times) he told your mother to leave you alone you'll be grand.

The time you both pretended you could not  hear your mother shouting about mowing the lawn when the match was on the TV.

The time he brought you fishing and he made excuses to tell you why you caught nothing.

The time he watched you playing football and told you you were great even though you missed a sitter.

If you can smile and any of these apply to you then you have a great Dad.

So celebrate, kick back and relax this Fathers  Day.

Here at the Galmont Hotel & Spa we offer Sunday Lunch at Marinas Grill from 1pm (advance bookings essential ) an ideal way to relax with your Dad. Call Peter for bookings on 091 538212.  Why not give him the gift of fitness with our limited edition pass from spirit one fitness and leisure.
