Anyone else out there on the Ireland in depth tour leaving US March 21 - the 16th if doing the Northern Ireland extension?  We're eager to make contact and are looking particularly for ideas of what others are thinking makes a good hostess gift for the home-hosted lunch in Cobh on March 29th.  I've read the tips in GCT's info, but most things typical of New England are heavy (e.g., maple syrup) and we're flying Manx airlines with very stringent weight restrictions within Ireland to meet the group in Belfast.  Every ounce will be important!

I won't be going until June.  But to answer your question, if a calendar with local scenes will weigh too much, how about a scarf with pictures of local scenes?  I'm sure you can find something like that at a museum store or online.
