My Commentaries

9 July 2009: I have to wonder what the locals though when they first saw Alfred’s hordes of soldiers come tramping over the hills [Fleadh away home]
16 July 2009: Apologies for the well-worn path across the pitch, but it was a mistake to locate it between the Omniplex and the Town Hall Theatre [Two Fleadhs in one?]
