Well, here it is once again folks and once again I’m reaching for the corkscrew to open a rather nice Christmas bottle of red wine and proceed to get more than a little mellow by the fireside. But before I do (and having brought to your attention the match report on and the post-match quotes relating to the over-40s All-Ireland in the Mayo News and a piece in the same paper about the interviews for the minor job), it’s time to sign off here for the Festive Season.
In doing so, I’d like to extend Season’s Greetings to all and sundry (even the Kerrymen, I suppose – it is Christmas after all) and to thank everyone for all the comments and emails received over the past twelve months. In an otherwise gloomy year, I’ve had a ball here and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too. All the best for Christmas, hombres, and here’s to bigger and better things in 2010.
