What happened last night was sick. The reaction on Twitter was even sicker. Ed Woodward’s Cheshire home was targeted by between twenty and thirty Manchester United ‘fans’, who lit flares and let them off in the direction of the home. Luckily, no one was home. Despite what you think of the job he is doing … Continue reading Too Far

This post began as a sort of tribute to Lourdes and my appreciation for the place, the pilgrimage and all it has done for me. As I finished up with my plan and read through my notes (That’s right, I do plan my blogs out even if it seems like they’re thrown together willy-nilly) I … Continue reading Face Your Fears

Maybe his absence is part of the reason I am becoming disenchanted with the city I call my home.Living abroad puts double-glazed rose-tinted … Continue reading Is Cork City losing its charm?
There used to be a time when I would scoff at the idea of doing anything productive on New Year's Day. It was a day for the hangover and an evening for the bed.
