Thanks Klaus, say Hi to Jude for me ;)

Hi Klaus,
I was talking there to Jude Cumiskey, who said she'd been talking to you about Powerdown. I understand that you are running one at UCC?
I am setting up a study group myself in Dromcollogher, however, I have a group of 3 or 4 people from Cork City wishing to attend. I could make a detour and take them to Limerick with me, but it might make more sense for them to come to you! Have you any places available, and when does the course start?
Kind regards,
Lily de Sylva.
