RORY'S GLORY

What an amazing achievement for Rory McIlroy in winning the US Open. He's only 22 years of age and he's got the golfing world at his feet.

And unlike other famous sportsmen, he seems to be a well-grounded young man.

Well done to him on his success and I hope he continues to shine for many years.

GREAT GIG

I had the great good fortune to go and see Take That in Croke Park over the weekend, and what a show it was!

Myself and a group of friends came up to Dublin and made a weekend of it, staying in a city centre hotel and enjoying the nightlife.

However, the highlight was the concert and it didn't disappoint. Robbie was the best, but the whole show was fantastic. For this weekend, we forgot about the recession.

poor AMY

APPARENTLY, Amy Winehouse was jeered and booed off stage during her comeback gig in the Serbian capital of Belgrade after she forgot the words to all of her songs. She was even pelted with plastic bottles at one point by disgruntled members of the audience.

Isn't it time that one of her relatives or friends stepped in and helped her to go to rehab and deal with her obviously very serious addictions?

It's a terrible shame to see such a talented singer ruining her life in this way.

COLLEGE COSTS

It's good news that students and families will be able to split the payment of the increased €2,000 college registration fee when it comes into effect in September.

The €2,000 fee can now be paid in two instalments -- €1,000 in September and €1,000 in January.

Though I don't agree with the increase in the registration fee, at least spreading the payment over a few months will help hard-pressed families.

I have twins going into third level college in September and it's going to be a tough time for us.

SHOPS CRISIS

I've really noticed a lack of staff in shops in recent months. More and more tills are closed and often there is only one till in operation.

If you try and find a member of staff to ask for advice, it's very hard. And the changing rooms appear to have nobody in charge of them.

I've also heard that many shops are considering shortening their opening hours.

All of this is terrible news for our retail sector.

PRECIOUS PHOTOS

I left my bag in Hogan's bar on George's Street last Friday night.

I think someone must have taken it because it was not there the next day. Unfortunately, it had a camera and camcorder with photos and video footage of the first four months of our little boy Eanna's life.

If someone did take take it, they can keep the camera but I would appeal to them to post the memory cards to the address below.

The pictures really mean a lot to us and we are devastated to lose them.
