      I had been trying to plot a line between Kinsale, Naas and Cloughjordan but my times were all out. Sorry to have missed the party! It sounds as if you were laden down with awards coming home 🙂

    892 posts, whoa! Here’s to the next 892 and the new adventures, friendships and good food they will bring. x

      I’d say my drafts folder holds another 892! Never realised, when I started blogging, how many friends I’d make through it. It’s been a superb eight years.

  3. Congratulations Caroline very well deserved, really love your blog.

    I think the McKenna’s put it so clearly “Caroline is the essence of a good journalist, getting 2 essence of the story, unhindered by ego or preconception” You are a natural. Would love to hear some new radio pieces from you Caroline too, so fantastic! Congratulations again. Imen x

    I had tears in my eyes reading this – I can only say I’m surprised it took them so long to recognise your talent. I’m proud that I can claim responsibility for giving you a gentle nudge to start you on this amazing journey. One that I hope I will watch and share for many years to come.
    We’ll have to do one hell of a redisgn to celebrate 😉
    This was all you chick enjoy

      Sue, without you I’d still be talking about blogging!

      Talk about the best possible post-accident occupational therapy. I’d recommend it to anyone.
