I don't put too many announcements on here, but this seems to be a bit of a day for such things. Congratulations to my great friend Andy Coyne on the birth of his first child. Madeline came into the world yesterday. Her and Sharon are both doing well. Given his footballing leanings I'm surprised she wasn't named Alison Vanessa Fay Coyne (AVFC).
And a very happy birthday to my Dad.
