I can't go on. . . I must go on. . .

I HAD a lovely outing on Friday evening to a free concert by the RTE Vanbrugh Quartet, held in St Brendan's Church in Bantry, Co Cork.

Now, the older I get, the more I enjoy a night at the opera, the ballet and concerts of a classical nature.

I'm not averse to even paying my way in but I always encounter a period of about 10 minutes during the performance when I have to make a huge teeth-gritting effort to maintain decorous behaviour.
