December is here and its time to get those Christmas plans in place.
I know we all thought ‘things will be back to normal’ for Christmas 2021 Connect but alas Covid has other plans, however as I have been saying its now time to recognise its not going away so like everything else in our life we just adapt and learn to live with it, and find ways to do things and meet people while having some responsibility for ourselves and keeping ourselves safe.
We have lots for you to read this month, gift ideas, books and lots of interesting people to meet, Rosanna Davidson chats about her life and babies, and we also chat to Kerry man Michael O Callaghan, a wonderful story of a boy who followed his passion in life and has made an amazing career from it, he certainly is an inspiration to young people out there.
Cooking tips to get the perfect Christmas from our chefs around Kerry, and decorating your home with Tara, and of course all our local businesses have lots of great offers for you, and we as always encourage you to support these great businesses who are always there for us. I know people say online is easier, safer and more convenient but you know there are many local business offering online too, so just check it out before you buy.
I want to sign off by saying a huge thank you to my team, Yev on design, Cathriona on editorial, John Walsh Photographer, Pat and his Distribution team, the team at Kingdom Printers, and all our contributors who made the year possible even through the toughest of times, thank you guys, Connect has a small family operating the everyday business, but we work together and make it happen. Massive thanks to all of you our readers, without you we would be nothing, we appreciate each time you pick up Connect.
As you know we don’t do a January issue that is our down time, so have a wonderful Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all for our February issue.
