Chiarrai Abu!!!

It was with great national pride that Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin went along to Croke Park last Sunday for the All-Ireland final.

Besides the fact that he is a proud Cork man, he was also hosting the brightest and the best of Irish business at home and abroad at the game as part of the Global Irish Economic Forum.

But while the Forum has been considered a huge success, the trip to Croke Park for the Minister and his guests was not.

The people of Cork – the Minister included – may have believed that this year was the year that Sam would return to the banks of the Lee.

But they were sorely disappointed when the men from Kerry ran rings around them on the pitch.

Meanwhile, back in Leinster House – there are certain TDs of a Cork hue who will be running scared this week after being a bit too over-confident that their team would win.

To all those – and you know who you are – mine is a gin and tonic!!
