Hi Nuala,

It was great meeting at PN - seems like an age ago now ... : )

What a residency...6 months! Sounds fab.
Like the idea of the stories inspiring the paintings...nice versatility there.

Thanks for this Nuala - just blogged this round at mine. I stayed in Cill Rialaig a couple years back. Well worth considering as a getaway.
