Saturday night’s all right… for Ryanair

Message to Michael O’Leary… I watch the football on TV on a Saturday.

I think you’ll understand although tonight it’s not your beloved Manchester City but that pesky Liverpool side.

Who seem the only team who can give you a game.

Just so you know though about my schedule the next time you extend your seat sale.

Ryanair has €25 off return flights on 150,000 seats for travel for September-December. But the deadline is midnight tonight.

Now, I’m noticing too that you’re flagging up on your first page Edinburgh, a city I love, and spent ten years in, before decamping to Ireland.

It is usual to promote Edinburgh ahead of Glasgow, my home city, but both should have equal billing in my mind.

Which reminds me of the two Glaswegians who had a poke at their Edinburgh ‘friends’ when they turned up in the Scottish capital’s main street, Princes Street, in 1990.

They were wearing sandwich boards with arrows saying: ‘You are only 46 miles from the European City of Culture’.

Iconic sight: Yes, the Duke of Wellington statue, but mostly Mum and I

Glasgow and Edinburgh are €9.99 one-way. I guess you have to do the math for the overall package otherwise they’d be literally paying you to travel!

Here is my love letter to Glasgow Although I am not blind to its blinkered attitudes to some things

And the website you should go to for all things Scottish

It’s the other British destinations that are pegged at under a tenner.

Barcelona, a song in my heart

But for a bit more spare change you can get out to Barcelona… for €14.99.

And when you’re out there you may want to pop by this restaurant, not far from La Rambla…

And see why Barcelona is cruising city (no, not that kind) but a port full of big ships

Lets dance! I’ve waltzed with Judy Murray, partied with Brian Lara, manned the barricades with Civil Rights leader Myrlie Evers and even unmasked The Donald as a mariachi fan. Join me (and my bandana) on a madcap tour of the world with the people who make it all possible, our wonderful travel providers.
