I know it feels a long way away, folks, but think of the splendid things ahead, like cuckoos, daffodils, and the clock going forward. Folks seem to get down in the winter, but I find it very restful and reflexive. As Eve and myself tuck into our al fresco breakfast in the Holy Ground, Cobh, we look forward to Lá le Bríde and the concert we have planned to celebrate it. It will be in the lovely unitarian church, Princes Street, Cork, on 1st February 2024. Watch this space for booking details!
