I know when you begin to dominate a championship that when another team eventually lift the trophy it can seem like an intolerable failure; compare our distress in 2009 to our resolve to do better after the final home game in 1996. Time adds perspective to our triumphs. As does not being there and seeing photos of the presentation hours after the event.
These are special times, enjoy them.
Many thanks to the Columba Club in Blantyre for Friday night’s Question and Answer event, and to the irrepressible Phil Agnew, who organised the event. I was delighted to share a stage with Paul McConville and Phil Mac Giolla Bhain. Great to see so many CQN’ers there too, my only regret is that I didn’t get a chance to catch up with everyone. With supporters like those in Blantyre on Friday night, we’re in good hands.
