Then it was down to partying the night away, whether it was dancing to the Macarena on the dance floor, or a cheeky Guinness at the bar, everyone was having fun! It all finished at the hotel bar with some ‘quiet’ drinks concluding at the early time of 5:30am. I’m sure there were some sore heads in the morning…
