    Hi Elaine & John……you both certainly haven’t been ‘dormant’ nor ‘idle’ over the winter months! The new look website is fabulous – not to mention all you’ve added since I last visited it. Congrats Elaine on all the hard work resulting in those letters after your name. You both have great creativity, vision and compliment each other with your married set of skills.
    I’m still hibernating in the city til the clock moves forward & the temperature rises to visit the caravan. See you at some point when down…..
    best regards,

  2. Thanks Fionnuala,

    We know it’s nearly summer when you are back in Clare – hope to see you soon!
    Glad you like the updated site. Munsterweb designer William Jones is entirely to thank for the lovely new layout. We highly recommend him whenever we get the chance.
    take care,

We Would Love To Here From You!
