The kids are officially on their summer hols in a bit over an hour from now and we’re all, as John Denver put it all those years ago, leaving on a jet plane later on this evening. In recent years the beach has taken precedence over the Connacht final for me but our planning, as well as the GAA’s own match scheduling, is a bit better this year so I’ll be back in time for the provincial decider on July 21st. As work has a nasty habit of following me all the way to the sun lounger I’ll also, as usual, have the laptop with me and so will be checking in every now and again while I’m away. ¡Hasta luego! and all that.
