A meet-up has been organized for the evening of the 23rd January at The Parlour on Main St. Manorhamilton at around 7.00pm. 

This is open to anyone and everyone who would like to get involved or just  generate ideas or suggest direction.  If there is anyone who would like to be involved but can’t make that time, just let me know and I can forward all the details and keep you posted the next day.


Please feel free to forward this mail to anyone you think might like to take part.


All the very best for now and Happy New Year!
