Voice-ing my opinion one last time; with thanks to the neff!


So I went dark for a bit, blog wise. But no one missed me, no one noticed, no one even caaaaaared! (I actually sang that bit!)

Although I didn’t blog, I certainly wasn’t silent. Anyone reading this who is connected with me on Facebook or Twitter is probably sick of me and is quite relieved I wasn’t blogging ASWELL!!!!!

Due to my eager (and excessive some would say) campaigning supporting my nephew’s efforts to win The Voice of Ireland, I’ve probably bugged some FB friends and Twitter followers. Or at the very least have been unsubscribed by a few… 🙂

I am sorry if I annoyed you. but if I did you probably don’t read my blog anymore either 😀 I’m sorry if you were irked, irritated, bored, throwing your eyes to heaven, wishing you’d never met me, hoping you’d never meet me again!

But I’m not one bit sorry I did it.

I’m monumentally proud of ALL my nieces and nephews. Just cos they’re alive really. They’re all different and I know some of them and their lives better than others; but they’re just fab. I have the great privilege of being able to be totally objective. Having no children of my own I don’t have anyone that I’m obliged to think better of 😀

Kevin Keeley (follow Kevin Keeley Music on Facebook, @keeley_kevin and @kevinkeeleyfans on Twitter… oh sorry; I’m doing it again!) Anyway… Kevin Keeley made it clear he was representing them all. He spoke about how his Grandad (my dad) encouraged us all to sing. Kevin made us proud to be from Tallaght, proud to be Keeleys, proud of the heritage that encourages us to love music. We sat glued to the telly, cheered when he sang and jumped up and down when he got through each round. It was electric. He brought so much fun and joy and laughs and near heart attacks to us all. And we loved every minute of it.

I could spend a few minutes talking about the stuff I didn’t like. The comments that hurt and annoyed, the votes that didn’t come, that decision that knocked him out…. but you won’t hear any of that from him – so you won’t hear it from me 🙂

Thanks so much Kevin – you made us proud and gave us a great reason to spend lots of time together. We’re so excited to see where this journey takes you next. We’re with you every step of the way.

Oh and in case and of you DIDN’T see any of his performances… here’s one for ya
