Hi Norah

you never disturbed me at all it was a pleasure to chat. I had the best time there, I have not enjoyed painting as much in a long long long time, I will definitely do more as soon as there is a paint out, I'll make sure I'm on it.

Hi Nora, my name might be familiar to you because my brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law live in Leixslip. Patsy & Elma(yoga teacher) have moved now but we used to visit them in Leixslip.

Hi Nora I see you might attend Woodville House paint out tomorrow.  It is nowhere near Wells House. As you arrive in New Ross from the Kilkenny side i.e. over the bridge, go straight ahead into the main street, turn left at the 98 monument and keep on that road. There will be a junction to your right about a mile??  down that road and a pub called the Ferry Inn. The entrance to Woodville is just beyond that on your right. Hope to see you.

If you coming from Wexford side turn right at the roundabout and follow the road straight til it joins the above road at the Ferry Inn.
