Taken for fuels...

Unless you are blind, or very rich, or both you cannot help but notice that the price of fuel has got completely out of hand in recent months. We are now paying well over €1.60 and getting on for €1.70 per litre for petrol, and €1.60 is typical for diesel.

Looking ahead

You may think that looking ahead to Spring is a little premature considering we are amidst a cold winter, but the fashion industry always works one season in advance. I am a regular London Fashion Week attendee and back in September I found it hard to decipher Spring/Summer 2012 trends, when we hadn’t even hit Winter.

An Evening with Mike Absalom at the Ballina Arts Centre

On Thursday, October 6, Ballina Arts Centre will present: An Evening with Mike Absalom. The Swinford-based painter, poet, raconteur, multi-instrumentalist, multi-linguist, potter, printmaker, songwriter – the list goes on – has done it all. Forty-odd years ago, he performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Monty Python’s Flying Circus hired him to distract a studio audience during scene changes. This brought songwriting success and the Old Grey Whistle Test and endless tours. And then he flew away and like a bee in a flower garden touched down in so many honeyed spots that there is no space here to list them. From Tierra del Fuego to the Yukon, from Iran to Paraguay and even for the World Harp Congress he sang and wrote and told stories and played his harp or his guitar. Now he’s coming to tell them here at home.
