I’m sure the Irish ancestry is at work.
Sat in the Belfast Hilton with a pint of ice cold Guinness, answering emails before tonight’s presentation.
I feel so much at home here – I love the Irish attitude to life.
My cab driver from the airport was a laugh and my receptionist at the Hilton could not have been more helpful and courteous.
The people here have suffered so much adversity over the years – as a result of which they have none of the b/s and barriers that one experiences in the “metropolis” cities on both sides of the Atlantic.
