    Lovely to hear from you again, (on your blog), Bridget and I hope your “hibernation / quiet time” goes well. We met at the scoodoo day. Thanks for sharing – loved Charlie’s post.

    Take your time and mind yourself, Marian x

    Glad you are back; missed you! Living in America we hear little of the true story behind the conflict, or the reaction of groups like yours. You and Charlie have given me much food for thought. P. x

    Are you okay, Bridget? I’ve not heard from you in what feels like quite a long time. If you’ve a bit of spare time, it’d be lovely to see you – maybe in Boyle…or Rathcormac…or in Carrick?
