i Cryptic Crossword 1106 by Eimi

August 26, 2014

Seeing that Eimi had unches along the top and bottom I was expecting to spot a Nina at some point, only to be disappointed when SPLEODARATNENAGH emerged.  Random letters, surely… Not a bit of it!  This was Eimi having a joke with his Nina spotters – the Spleodar at Nenagh (pronounced ‘Nina’) is, according to the original blog here, a festival in Ireland. Ha!

Some very enjoyable clues in here – just right for a Tuesday.  My favourite was one of the five excellent fifteen-letterers, 11 across:

Of great consequence – could be heart-breaking (15)

    Hi Tony, if you click on the word ‘here’ (which is written in blue, just after ‘the original blog’) the link will happen. I know JohnofWales puts the whole link written out, I just do a hyperlink. 🙂

    This is something which, henceforth, I will try to avoid!
