That title sounds familiar?
Summer is drawing to a close, and my thoughts revert to that back-to-school feeling.
My early memories are of returning from a summer spent in my mother’s home place in Enniscorthy.
My uncle Mick would hire a car, and a group of his friends would travel to Dublin for the all-Ireland Hurling Final played on the first Sunday in September.
They would squeeze me into the car somewhere, and my abiding memory was of the sadness of losing the freedom of the countryside and returning to the restrictions of city life.
Perhaps you may be having a similar feeling now that the holidays are drawing to a close. Having enjoyed the slightly slower pace of life during the recent months.
I am sure your inbox slowed somewhat; mine certainly did. Mainly because I slowed down and reduced the number of e-mails I sent. (This is my first article since June).
Adare for the Pro-Am
Watching with friends and family, the best golfers in the world do their thing.
Sligo – Strandhill
Unfortunately, we played golf in the wind and the rain and had no opportunity to apply what I had observed in Adare in the sunshine. Sligo is still the most beautiful county in Ireland.
Listowel in the Kingdom
Billy Keane, the proprietor of John B Keane’s fantastic little pub, explains that Listowel is a festival town and the businesses in the town were very happy to see Listowel back in full swing.
We were there for the Revival Festival, upcoming is ‘Writers Week’ and then ‘The Races’. No better place to be in Ireland than at J.B. Keane’s for theatre night (every Tuesday and Thursday). We had a great time, with music, poetry, and sing-along to close our summer.
Now back creatively refreshed and ready to enjoy another year, meeting new and old clients and supporting them to grow themselves and their businesses.
It’s time to kick start activities again after a great summer spent holidaying in Ireland.
