I’m going to begin this column with the great news about Katie Taylor. As we all know by now, on Saturday night she defeated Belgian woman, Delfine Persoon, in Madison Square Garden in New York. I didn’t see the fight because it was at 1.30 in the morning, but I saw bits of it on the news, and it appears that she won it fair and square. But already the grumblings are beginning and Delfine Persoon has challenged her to a re-match as soon as possible. If I was Katie Taylor, I would not agree to a re-match. Katie won it, and she is now the undisputed lightweight champion of the world. Why should she casually decide on a re-match, just because the loser wants to engage with her immediately? So leave her alone; you are now, Katie, the world champion, so rest on your laurels. Despite that fact, she is always regarded, both when written about and in interviews, as a modest, unassuming young woman, and she appears to be that in every sense of the word. Well done Katie, and I hope you enjoy the sense of accomplishment.

There can be no bye-law implemented to ban the erection of election posters in towns before any upcoming election, it was explained this week at the Castlebar Muncipal District. Sinn Féin Cllr Joe McHale raised the issue at the December meeting of the Castlebar Muncipal District this week and he was told by the Cathaoirleach of the district Cllr Michael Kilcoyne, that he had received a letter from a council official, that a bye-law could not be implemented because national laws allowed for the erection of posters for a time period before any election and the removal of them seven days afterwards. Director of Services for Mayo County Council, John Condon told the meeting that while a bye-law could not be implemented, the candidates could agree between them not to put up posters and such agreements are in place in other towns and areas, but it is a voluntary decision to be made by individual candidates.
When all is said and done, there is great wisdom to be got from Puss in Boots in Shrek. A master of the art of life, a great survivor, a curator of the nine lives that he was born with, he was often known to impart the words of a creature who had lived life to the full and knew all its twists and turns.
