Dublin, it's down there somewhere

Approaching Dublin last week, I was watching our flight path on the seat back monitor. I started wondering if perhaps the pilot was already hitting the Guinness.

In reality, the airport was fogged in so flights were backed up, putting us in a hold pattern over the Irish Sea. As we finally approached Dublin I could see the smokestacks of the Poolbeg Generating Station sticking up through the very low clouds! Our eventual landing was most interesting as I watched out the window, wondering when the runway was going to appear. A few extra Hail Mary's were invoked on the way in!
