Thank you for all the your entries to the riddle competition. I think I made it too easy as the answer was guessed straight away, congratulations Sally.
Judging the funny entries was much harder so I bottled out and appointed a judge in the form of Dillon my 13 year old son. He has a great sense of humour, a love of the English language and doesn't know any of the entrants so was very well qualified...well I thought so at least.
After much deliberation he handed me the following list: Cookiecrumb, John and Purpleworms. As I am so generous (nothing to do with not being able to shorten the list myself) I have decided you all derserve a prize so Sally, Cookiecrumb, John and Purpleworms please email me your postal address (click on 'view my complete profile' to find my email address) and soon you will find a package winging it's way to you containing a piece of quality Irish tat.
