Huge thank you to Cottage staff
THEY ARE the people you hope you never have to call, but are on standby in case you do. They turn up every day to be abused, punched, stabbed, kicked, spat and puked upon.
WATERPROOFS, fleece, umbrella, gloves, golf shoes and woolly hat – I was all set for the Gaelic Grounds on Sunday. It was that miserable and cold I even rooted out the hip flask.
