Just to touch base again with all of you, and I hope all is good.
I have had a quiet time since I last connected with you all and indeed it is good to take time and reflect on one’s life and I have done exactly that.
I have spent the past while helping my friend Big Tom get his songs ready for a new .C.D. and I have enjoyed spending time with him and his wife Rose.
I am also busy with the project of the Big Tom Statue which will be erected next year in Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan, that will be a big day.
As we listen to songs for Tom it gives me an urge to think about recording a new C.D. of my own which I thought would not happen but one never knows, so although I don’t tour any more I may record again, who knows! Another duet with Big Tom would be wonderful.
On October 18th I am going to Ballyliffin in Donegal to sing at a Charity Concert for the folk who were harmed by the storm and floods, and I am going to sing a few songs at the Michael Commins Show in the Salthill Hotel, Galway in November so I will be looking forward to seeing some of you then.
I have just returned from America where I spent two weeks with friends and relations and it is always special to catch up with everyone, an added bonus to my holiday, the weather was fabulous.
All of you take care of each other
Until the next time.
