Closing time

went for the usual few pints of beer last night in the local, chatting away with the folks and getting nicely merry into the wee hours.

Something in the fresh sea air, the invigorating landscape or just within the beer (who knows) inspired me to write a blog post on, a domain I've been hoping to call online home to a 'proper' blog and a bunch of other things but I haven't got around to sorting it and keep fobbing it off. 

I wrote from the heart/gut/head/wherever and at 4am, after failing to get some audio clips on the page I gave in and hit Publish and fell asleep. I woke with the inevitable "oh f*ck" recounting my online trip the night before that involved a lot of writing, possibly too much of it in hindsight. My initial reaction was "must delete that asap" but I've done that so many times before, be it blog posts, comments, texts, emails. I decided not to delete it and just clean up the awful grammer and typos and get the audio up. It's a new blog and a new approach to blogging for me and why not start with breaking the unwritten rule of "never ever drink & blog" :)  That said, I'll do my best not to become dependent on pints of Smithwicks for inspiration to write!

I don't know where it's going but I can't wait to find out!

Niamh gigging for Cobh Hospital on May 8th

My "little" sister Niamh (on the right) is gigging in aid of Cobh Hospital on May 8th in Cobh Heritage Centre with local baritone Darragh McGann.

Darragh will be performing classical and contemporary pieces while Niamh will be throwing in the odd solo piece on the piano. 

Despite her being my sister and my obvious tendency to be a little biased, please do go along to support them and enjoy what I'm sure will be a beautiful evenings' entertainment. She'll be but two days turned 19 for this concert and it's her second charity event,  having donated proceeds of her first recital to the guys in She's one top lady & hopefully I'll see you down there on the 8th.

For all you ladies out there...

Some words of advice from the lovely people at Wilkinson Sword (thanks to @dhuntrods).

"Mow the lawn"


Ever wish you'd stayed in bed?
