Hi Matthew--

Just back frae NornIreland, the Glens o Antrim, which is just about the best mix of Irish and Ullans perspectives that I've come across in the 'Province'
[mainly because of a nationalist majority there, on the rocky fringes, but a good and fairly relaxed mix overall] --

this school project looks really good! Mair guid wark fae the dynamic numero uno-- will forward to [CENSORED: forename] [CENSORED: surname] when back at work tomorrow, and hope to make a helpful introduction to yese baith thereby.

Best--

Jim
