Cause for celebration…

An cuis nach raibh me anseo ar feadh culpa lae – rugadh inion deas do mo bhean ceile Fay – agus Eve Mary an t-ainm ata aici.

The reason I’ve not been around for the last few days is that my wife Fay gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter – Eve Mary. For those of you sufficiently motivated, please feel free to wet the babies head!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
