- Saying farewell to a dear friend and feeling strength in the community -- A sad Christmas as family and village mourn a great son and a true pal
- Christmas starts way too early here in Ireland nowadays - Halloween is hardly over when Santa Claus shows up
- Internet and Facebook bullying comes home to haunt Irish parents - Tragic deaths of two teenagers reveal scope of the problem
It was great to hit New York for the weekend a few weeks back and all for a good cause too. Being stuck in studio in Cork 4 days a week didn’t make it easy, especially when the Sunday night flights gets into to Shannon at 7am and we are in the office at 9. I couldn’t wait for the show to finish that evening; I was halfway to my bed before the credits were off the screen.
As you may know the Aisling Irish Centre invited me over to host The Bachelor of New York 2013 and what a night it was. I hadn’t been in Gaelic Park in years. It was like the Hillgrove night club in Dingle on a bank holiday weekend, the place was packed and people were there from all over Ireland.
