On behalf of the good people in Ireland, Mr Nixon, we welcome you back to the country. Things have changed a bit since you were last here. To quote Miriam, we have European overlords now. (Don't worry: they won't stop you from shuttling the best GAA talent south). Also we're about to hand the keys of the country over to this Mayo man.
So we're pretty much fucked. Maybe you would sympathise. I see you've moved your visit to Ireland forward by a week or so. Enjoy your time here, but some free advice: steer clear of secondary schools. You don't need the publicity. And keep your head down on Sigerson weekend. The GAA considers itself to be a morally-upstanding organisation. You'll find out soon if you still have a job to go back to in Australia. There's plenty of unemployed people in Ireland right now. You'll fit right in.
