Good luck to all tonight! All concerned should be basking in the warm glow of a strong show of pride from the Irish rugby team (Ulsterman Andrew Trimble was just one fumbled pass away from the tryline). There should be some live blogging from the Hotel. Naoise and Gonzon are hoping to get something up on Slugger, but it may or may not materialise in the tumult of the evening. Or, indeed, he may too depressed to bother! Whoever wins or misses out, check out the long list and go to some of the places you’ve not been before. Getting out more is what blogging’s all about!!
