Belated new years greetings

Just to say thanks to those who posted comments on the Jerry Harmon interview and the Bowls programme, was actually conversing with a Ballincollig man recently who recounted the tale of Mick Barrys' incredible feat. We've had some technical problems with the Abbeyfeale studio in the last few months, so a lot of energy has been diverted from this blog but hope to have a few podcasts up within the next few days. Finally, outside of the arts and culture realm, big shout out to all who supported the table quiz at the Winners Circle bar in Abbeyfeale on the 22nd January. An enormous crowd turned up to raise funds for Abbeyfeale native Linda Sweeney, who is based with the Red Cross in the Caribbean area and is presently working with that organisation in Haiti, and a huge sum was raised on the night.
