BIT of a surprise at a pub quiz question last week in the Errigle. One of the questions asked was about a local website getting listed in Esquire’s top Fifty Best things in the media. The answer was, of course, here first, but it appeared in the Irish News shortly afterwards, the day of the quiz no less. And there were quite a few Irish News staff in the bar that night. Fix!I’m off for a week. Will pop in obviously, but don’t expect me to pay attention quite as much. The papers should be fun tomorrow though. It’ll be interesting to see how they all present the IRA story – and will there be any surprising reaction? Hardly imagine so. I do imagine a late breakfast with a large pile of newspapers around lunchtime though…
