One of my New Year’s resolutions was to resurrect my much neglected blog, which I started as part of the WordPress Postaday project, so here I am.
I’m not going to commit myself to a post a day, as with family, study & work commitments, I was struggling to fulfil the commitment. What I have decided to do, is try and post a photograph a day, a la Project 365 (or 366 as it’s a leap year!) which may or may not be accompanied by a narrative.
So I’ll start with a couple of photographs from New Year’s Eve.
My son, Thomas, and I celebrated New Year’s Eve at the Irish National Exhibition Centre (INEC) in Killarney. We attended what was advertised as Ireland’s biggest New Year’s Eve party. The head-liners for the night were the Saw Doctors, one of our favourite bands, supported by Sharon Shannon & Jack L.
I’ll be posting a review of the gig on my other site, myrockdatediary, but needless to say it was a storming night! The festivities started early afternoon on the train down from Dublin, when having changed trains at Mallow, the beer started flowing. It continued at our hotel, carried on at the Backstage bar at the INEC, and culminated at the party itself.
Well that’s my first post of the year, relatively painless, but then I am on holiday!
For now, can I just wish anyone who reads this or who has supported by blogging efforts throughout 2011 a Happy New Year!
