*Update* - Almost seven months ago the 10 specially signed albums were posted off to the 10 competition winners, some as far away as Canada and Australia. And all reached their new homes but one. Unfortunately this one got lost in transit to Italy so the mission now was to try and replace it.
The replacement album was signed by three Waterboys and it was only missing Mike's signature. This replacement album is extremely well traveled, it has been to shows in England, Scotland and Belgium and to two Dublin shows.
So, enlisting the help of a great friend, the album was sent to Norway where the last signature of the man himself was obtained in Oslo.(Thank you Dag Reinert Johansen and Thank you Mike). And after receiving it by return post, it was sent on to Italy by registered mail.
Donato received his personalised signed album on 24th May 2018. (See photo below).
Thank you to all who entered or have read this piece and for all your support.
Congratulations to the following Water People: Sven-Erik Andersen, Andy Pritchatt, Tony Thompson, David Lappin, Evelyn Keyser, Michael Macken, Ali Wilson, Donato Morganella, Kevin O'Reilly and Roz Monger.
