On the Road again – back in Dundalk

By Dermot Keely

Sorry about missing the blog – circumstances beyond my control unfortunately. Since my last blog I have been back to Dundalk. Whilst there I was able to attend the Dundalk v Derry City match with my old mentor Jim McLaughlin, glad to say he is in rude health and is in great form as well.

Serving as many pints as possible and not drinking them!! Unlike some we have to pay rent for the bar and our apartment etc, we do not have someone to pay OUR rent unlike our esteemed CEO (sorry EX CEO) John Delaney.
