2003-12-30 Fallen child stars seem to outweigh the successes by quite a sizeable margin

In February 2004 Charlotte Church, the little girl with the unnaturally mature soprano voice, turns 18. Charlotte was discovered at the age of 11 as she sang down the phone on ITV's "This Morning" show, and the money which has been accumulating ever since will become rightfully hers in a few months time.

2003-12-23 Shadow's First Christmas

The Ox Mountains stood proud, still swathed in its rich autumnal mantle. North of the city of Sligo, a halo of Winter icing gilded the summit of Truskmore. It was almost midnight on a particularly crisp December 23rd, and there was still the slimmest chance that Sligo would see its first "White Christmas" in many years.

2003-12-02 They should all hang their heads in shame after auction

2003-11-25 Snobbery

While just about to enjoy dinner with friends in a Dublin restaurant recently, the waiter greeted us and presented us with the wine-list. He asked if anyone had any preferences, and one of my fellow diners replied authoritatively "ABC!".

2003-11-11 Lough Lumman

How many Sligo people have heard of Lough Lumman, and of those who have heard of it, how many have actually been there? Lough Lumman is just one of many little lakes dotted throughout the Ox Mountains, and it is situated, as the crow flies, around half-way between Dooney Rock and Ballygawley.

2003-10-28 Only a handful of teachers affected me in positive way

Ponder this: `Teaching is one quarter hard work and preparation, and the rest is theatre'. So if it is 75 per cent performing, why then did I do a `road-runner' out of those classrooms all those years ago leaving behind me nothing more than a cloud of chalk-dust?
