Paid my usual annual visit to Hearth & Home Exhibition in Harrogate. Nice to meet all the guys from the Sure Fire centre where I trained last year. As I was the first Irish Trained Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps, I would like to welcome George, the second Irishman to our organisation.

Ger Killeen from Kinnegad, who at the age of 10 years saved his fathers life after his arm had been severed in a farming incident. Ger who used a spanner and twine to apply a tourniquet to his fathers upper arm twice , never left his fathers side after he raised the alarm. On the basis of his heroic actions Ger became Young Person Of The Year in 2007. Another honour is being bestowed upon Ger when he will be the youngest participant to carry the Olympic Torch in Dublin.
