Well, the day finally arrived and the new Dublin City Gazette was launched in the Mansion House. The place was packed as the Lord Mayor welcomed everybody and wished the newspaper all the best. There were quite a few celebrities in the house, and all in all it was a memorable night.
For myself, the first outing of my column Don’s Dublin was great to see, and chatting with former World Snooker Champion was a treat. He was heading off to play in two ranking tournaments in China a few days later, a place where the game is growing rapidly and the quality of opposition increasing year on year.
Wishing everyone at DCG all the best – and long may it run!
