I was out at the Deaf Village in Cabra today for the launch of the Deaflympics teams heading to Sofia [Bulgaria next week. I was startled to see a rather huge gap where the press usually are, aside from myself and a bloke. Such a shame to see these fine athletes not getting the attention they deserve…so much COYBIG!
