"The dream is to travel the world and work as a freelance journalist. I have been lucky enough to visit some great places and have great experiences. But no matter where I go and for how long I go, I always come back to Galway. The city has this amazing ability to suck you back. After I have visited everywhere I want to see, I know I will come back to Galway."

It is that time of year again. The Christmas season is fast approaching and with only 40 days left before the big day, the last few weeks are usually spent dashing around shops, making lists (and checking them twice), making a mess wrapping gifts, buying the most ridiculous Christmas jumpers and, most importantly, enjoying some well-deserved time off.

Alana, the clinician, was very professional and spoke in plain language. It proved helpful.”

It was ultimately a disappointing international break for Irish fans as the 1-1 draw with Denmark in Dublin on Monday night was not enough to secure a place at Euro 2020. Mick McCarthy's men will have another shot at qualifying for the continent's football jamboree next summer but that is at the end of March and we have plenty of Premier League action to keep us occupied over the coming months.
