A flash sale on airfare by JetBlue combined with a simple points trick can get you from Texas to Ireland on the cheap.

JetBlue sale

jetblueDeals we Like was the first poster that I saw that announced a sale from select cities in Texas (Houston, Dallas and Austin) to Boston.  Flights are $54 one way, and availability is pretty open, though probably going to go away pretty quickly.

Okay that gets you from Texas to Boston, but what about Ireland?  This is taking advantage of one of the major sweet spots in the distance-based award chart of British Airways.
