Up the Dubs!
Just checking in from my break to wish Dublin the best of luck in their bid to claim a third consecutive Leinster Football title against Laois later today.
I'm confident the boys in blue will do us proud. I only wish I could be there to see it at Croke Park.
Afterwards Monaghan will take on Tyrone in the Ulster Football Final. I've friends from Monaghan so I'll be rooting for them to take their first Ulster title in 19 years. I reckon they'll have a tough time of it though.
Should be a good sporting day.
As for this blog, I haven't forgotten it. I hope to be back blogging regularly in a short while. I have comments from some of you on other threads which I will add eventually. I also have an interview with Sinn Féin MLA for North Antrim, Daithí McKay, to publish.
I haven't much else to add at this point in time except to say that I was pleased the 12th of July Orange Order parades passed off peacefully and without incident. It was disappointing to see some UDA banners flying about but most people were respectful and we have to acknowledge that we're still in very much a transitional period on this island.
Anyway I hope the weather is nice wherever you are and that you're having a good summer. God bless.
