Happy Birthday to Us!

The great Pat Jennings recently turned 65 - belated birthday wishes Big Man! NIFG hasn't quite reached such vintage yet, for today we turn FOUR. Like most four year-olds we've learnt an awful lot, we've made plenty of mistakes and a bit of a mess at times, but by now the world is getting used to us and we're getting used to the world. Be patient with us and we'll try to pay attention and avoid being distracted by that new shiny thing over there as we continue to grow and mature. Thanks, once again, to all of those who have been in touch over the past twelve months with information, memories and corrections. Please keep them coming too, for the day we can't make use of some new fact will be the day all stattos give up and put all their newspapers, magazines, programmes and books on ebay!
