Dear Geoff/List, Thanks for in info on Newgrange, I would like to have the
photos of Tara, can I send
you $ for postage? When you went was it cold? I live in Maui, and have
very thin blood, and it is very hot here. Can you tell me about
the roads and if there is a town nearby with lodging, or services?
I am looking for a good travel package if anyone has info, quality with
good prices is what I like.
I would also like to buy some books about these ancient sites, if anyone
has suggestions.
Thanks, Jill
