Counting down to my holliers. I couldn’t be happier not to be getting on a plane and instead leaving Dublin by camper van which I’ll be pointing in a westerly direction – John

It has made me happy to be part of the fantastic committee who are organising Carlow’s first ever Pride Parade and Rainbow Family Festival on Sunday, July 21st. We are so grateful for all the wonderful support we have received, from organisations, businesses and the general public! Inclusivity is our motto – Sally

Watching a pair of beautiful bullfinchs drinking from my birdbath – Carmel

Thinking about my Dad Frank this week, it’s 17 years since he passed away. He was a wonderful husband and dad. We had many happy times – Aoibhin

Thanks so much for the opportunity to look for and focus on things that make us happy. I would love to see it in a corner on the front cover of The Irish Times.

So uplifting. So much to be grateful for – Ann
