David Quinn


I am grateful to those who have helped to contribute to this book in various ways, meaning all those who have been there in the 23 years that I have been writing a national newspaper column. I am grateful to Damien Kiberd, who gave me my start at the Sunday Business Post in 1993, and to the various editors and other journalists I have worked with at The Sunday Times, The Irish Independent, and, of course,  The Irish Catholic, which I edited for more than six years and to which I still contribute. I am grateful to the present editor, Michael Kelly, for his assistance in preparing this book, and to Garry O’Sullivan, Managing Director of Grace Communications, and to the staff at Currach Press, including the Managing Editor, Mags Gargan; the Editorial Assistant, Emilie Condron and Head Designer, Alba Esteban.

I would also like to thank The Sunday Business Post, Sunday Times, Irish Independent and The Irish Catholic for permission to reprint these columns. Finally, I would like to thank my wife, Rachael, for her help and support
down all the years.
