After much talking and huffing and puffing, it’s official, I will be flying off to Australia in early November until at least September 2013 when I may stay on or come back to Ireland to do another post-grad course in Dublin.
While my date for departure is still some way away, as you will all understand, my articles or stories may become somewhat more sporadic, especially in November when I try and settle in and get work all at once. I will be going via New York to be called to the State Bar which means a trip to the state capital Albany, so I hope to have something of a diary up complete with photos, some history and anecdotes on places of note on my travels, whilst keeping an eye on things closer to home.
Who knows, while I am in Sydney or Brisbane (as of yet undecided) you may see some posts even on Julia Gillard who I hope will give more dressing downs such as the below, what a leader (and I mean that); why can we not have more politicians like the Prime Minister here?! I recommend you watch the video in its entirety, a well argued tour de force if I have ever seen one in my life.
Or, you may see some other sporting codes being commented on here instead of football/soccer, whether it’s rugby union or footie (I’m a Collingwood fan, the single most hated team in AFL).
I will of course still try to look at what is going on in the North and elsewhere and pass comment on that which interests me, but expect my posts to be going out at rather unusual times compared to most who pass comment (the chattering class!).
Let’s just hope this song is not true for my travels, though it would mean Queensland’s record drought would most certainly come to an end within a week! Cheesyish tune, but I like it now and again.
Have a great weekend everyone!
