Congratulations to The Irish Times’ own, Alan Titley, who was awarded columnist of the year last night at the annual Oireachtas na Gaeilge Media Awards for his Thursday column in this paper. It is the second time Titley – who has a day job as Professor of Irish at UCC – has scooped the prize for his writing here. Funny enough, a friend mentioned this very week that he has taken to clipping Alan’s columns and reading them over and over again. Some compliment that and one which Alan richly deserves. Anyway, that is Cork’s first All-Ireland of the year. Only Sam and the McCarthy Cup left now.
