A FASCINATING week for me. It was especially busy, thanks to a larger than usual amount of columns to include in this edition of the paper. The added pressure was, in the main, due to writing features about two people for whom I have boundless admiration, Jacqueline Norris and Peter Molony.

They come from different family backgrounds, one horse connected and the other not, but both have established themselves as professionals in the business, enjoying a great deal of success in a variety of strands within our sector.
