Good things happen to good bar people

You might remember, back in August, I told you about the launch of a little campaign to ensure that Clare Johnston - Northern Ireland's greatest living bar person - was united with her rightful title.

Well, last night, it happened.

And here she is with her award.

Yes dear friends, in a glitzy reception in thon Belfast, the Queen of the Railway Arms in Coleraine was formally crowned as Best Bar Person at the Ulster Pub of the Year Awards.  (The Railway Arms also made the shortlist for Pub of the Year).

Those of us who know Clare and understand how deserving she is could not be more proud.
