Welcome Adam Mernin

I’m delighted to announce the arrival of Adam Mernin to the world. He is the second son of my brother, John and his wife Julie. He arrived 2 weeks early at 9pm on Thursday, September 28th 2006 at Waterford Regional Hospital, Ireland and weighed in at 6lbs 6ozs.

Yet again, it is just utterly amazing that, there I was sitting at home, and hey presto, I was able to look at a picture of my new nephew on a device that is countless times smaller than he is, literally within minutes of his birth. I mean, did my parents ever dream that such a thing would be possible in their lifetime? I can’t help wondering where technology will be when it is Adams turn to announce the arrival of someone close to him.

Congratulations and well done Julie!

Conor Quinlan

Congratulations to my mate Gavan and his wife Michelle who are the proud parents of baby Conor, born last week in Dublin. It’s been a long time coming I’m sure but looking at the pictures of mother and baby, it looks like it was well worth the wait. Of course he’s already taking after his father, knocking back large bottles and falling asleep within 10 minutes!!!

He’s a very lucky lad to have such great parents and I’m sure they will make wonderful parents…
