What’s worse? Listening to endless news about the global stock market meltdown? Or having to get out of bed before 6am to drive across the country to Limerick? The answer, of course, is both and, unfortunately for me, that was my lot this morning. Early mornings of this order no longer agree with me, certainly not in deepest January, but what with wolves and doors and the like, some things cannot be avoided.
So what’s going on, then? Not much, by the looks of it which is just as well as I’m being consumed by work at the moment. A quick perusal of the ever-informative Mayo News has yielded the information that, after all the experimentation in the FBD, a number of the more experienced heads could re-appear shortly, some as soon as Saturday’s challenge match with Westmeath at Ballinrobe. Sean Rice gives his usual run-down on who did well and who did not-so-well last weekend and Mike Finnerty provides his normal in-depth match report.
That’s it, that and the fact that the Fed has cut the US interest rate by three-quarters of a percent but the markets still don’t look too happy. Jeez lads, lighten up FFS.
