Saturday just gone myself and a host of others crossed the half marathon finish line on the wonderful island of Inis Mór all for the good folks of Temple Street Childrens Hospital.

I’ll leave the reasons why Temple Street is so close to my heart to one side for now. I will note however that I could not have chose better company to complete the 13.5 miles with than that of Nick McGivney [pictured below] and Kevin Rowe [above].

This is possibly an odd one for this landscaping blog, but it’s also a nice one and somewhat related to the business that is Donegan Landscaping. Before I go any further, I drive an ’05 Saangyong Rexton, I’ve never owned a new vehicle and being the compost covered chariot that it is, no bride to be has ever requested I give her a lift, to get her to the church on time.

Online, Ssangyong had been yapping about their new sparkly Korando Sports that I thought was pretty darned sexy looking if I’m honest. And after working through the wee hours one night, standing beside my shiny on the outside – photosynthetic on the inside vehicle, I sent them this wee note:
