This is not the time for doubt or self - recrimination, Ivor. You remain the only Ulsterman ever to lead the Historymen to cup glory. Even Mary Peters failed to clear that hurdle. So accept the hysterical adulation while you can; it probably won't last much past October, anyway.
It's Jitka I feel sorry for. Like Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, she is confident that she has in her grasp that thing which all men desire. How cruel then the realisation that nobody in the room seems aware of her great bounty.
Over on the other table Anne -Marie seems similarly spurned. Her tin trinket is not enough to pique the curiosity of her male colleagues as they bask in the glories of yesteryear and silently reprise their Oscar winning performances in "The Big Sleep", "Ice Cold in Alex" and "The Man Who Knew Too Much", respectively.
