My husband and I are going to visit Ireland from May 3- May 10th. Would love to try and connect with you, we will be doing a loop around the south end of the island, and then looping back up towards Dublin. I see Carlow is on our route down. Any chance we could connect on the May 4th or on May 8th or 9th. We have land and forest in Nova Scotia that we’re planning to begin sharing with artists and eco- practitioners
Would love to see you again.
