Here you go my piece in the Feelgood with the Irish Examiner last week. Bear in mind it was immediately after Valentines Day. Enjoy. The best thing about Valentine’s day is that it ended two days ago. The unfortunate thing about it, is that it happened at all. However, now that it’s over can we … More There I am in the paper #52
I wrote last week saying I’d love to share some of your stories about how you met the love of your life. What I have always found amazing is that, for many, the meeting of their partner was a moment of chance or courage. To set the ball rolling here’s my story. I met ‘yer … More What’s your story?
Just a quick post tonight, but it’s a real treat. Please listen to this. It’s a beautiful song written and performed by Jess. The song is called Christmas’79.

In our house there are many photos of our Mom and Dad. However there is one in particular which for me sums up the … More ‘Til death us do part’
