While I try and get a few of my fuddled brain cells in a row in order to dump some more drivel on you I have a little poser for you.

In 1976 I received an award for something from the office of the President of Ireland (funnily enough he resigned shortly after, an extra point for his name)

-- any guesses what it was for.....

Prize for the winner

I"ll just have the prize for the extra point for naming Cearbhall O"Dalaigh, the most controversial of all Ireland"s Presidents, cos no-one will guess what you got the award for. Did you win a gold medal at the Montreal Olympics?

Extra point to that man (simple for an man of your education John) and unless they had smoking and drinking at the olympics - no

Nice try but that has 4 categories

   *  A Community Involvement
   * A personal skill
   * A physical recreation
   * A venture activity

really can you ever see that from me even when younger, you"re having a Giraffe, the first one maybe, but no try again

You signed that bit of paper agreeing not to drink until you hit 21.  They believed you"d achieved it, sending you a note of recognition/congratulations.

It wasn"t from him personally, it came from his office and was posted
