It's been the greatest year of my life that's for sure. It's hard to imagine how the next however many years I have could compare to something so incredible and life changing, but I sure hope they compete. In my wildest dreams I never imagined I'd be standing where I am today, experiencing all I have. It's fair to say I've pinched myself a few times over the past 8 months to see if this is more than a dream. To all the incredible people I've met and been fortunate enough to share experiences and memories with, Thank you. You truly made this experience once in a lifetime and it means more to me than you'll ever understand. I won't be saying goodbye, I will be seeing you soon whether it be in Brazil, France, Germany, Spain, Canada or even back here in Ireland.
I can't thank Geroge J Mitchell and all involved in this program enough, you've truly changed my life.
Go raibh mile maith agat.
