Culchie Catch-Up (14)

There are some sore heads this morning after an early start on the #dubcrawl trail hence the delayed Catch-Up this week.  (Ouchy).

So what happened this week? Charleze Theron handed a sneaky victory to Ireland. The Top Gear Live show is attracting thousands. Electric Picnic tickets went on sale and I couldn’t get my hands on Florence & The Machine tickets for love nor money. **ahem** Put on another gig  **ahem**.

    No one really comments on the Cluchie catchup posts. But I have to say it was a particularly good week at Culch. And not only cause I had a post before anyone says anything!!
    And fair play to you Lottie in getting this out every week!
