Hi Theresa - that was quick, well spotted ! The Highfield Nurseries project is at an early stage, I just recently signed up to be involved - site access is still being negotiated, but
the committee hope it will soon be resolved to enable to planting in the new year. If your sister was interested, I could forward her email address to the contacts co-ordinator.

Hi Theresa, Thanks for your welcome note. I was wondering if you know of anybody that is involved in TT and would be willing to set up an infomation stall at the event we are organising in Kinvara. I know you are all busy that weekend in Kinsale but if you think of anyone please let me know.

Hi Theresa,

I wrote my masters dissertation on the role that Transition Initiatives played in Somerset County Council's decision to pass a Transition Resolution. Its an interesting case study and its worth taking a look at if you are considering pressing your own local authority to address peak oil. You can find my dissertation at the following link:

I have tried to send a message to you yesterday but I'm not sure it got sent.
However, my heart goes out to you and yours after learning about your partners tumour. Have you ever come across in the context of cancer treatment? Stella has done a hell of a lot of research on nutrition and health, especially regards bipolar disorder, dyspraxia and cancer. If you like feel free to ring her anytime at 052 7442816
All the best,

Thank you so much, Theresa,
I'm very optimistic, they detected it very early, and the survival rate of prostate cancer is very good.
All the best to you and yours,

thanks Theresa - we had a great weekend in Waterford. Still recovering! But yes we had about 100 people indicate that they want to set up GIy groups in their area so very positive. Alot of work to do now converting all that entusiasm in to action...

Just wanted to say that I think your on-line diary is a great idea, very real - I was wondering about the potential to include photos / video to make it even more real ? It would be wonderful if more of us (including me !) could get our acts together to record such things.

More best of luck !!

Hi Theresa,
I am looking for any visual info about transition towns in ireland to use at our first TT gathering here in Scarriff Co.Clare, I'm looking for articles, leaflets, photos, posters... anything that would give people a sense of the bigger picture of TT, if you have anything like that could you send it my way!
Thank you,
all the best,

Hi Theresa - nice photo - the person I remember mentioning was Norman Macmillan who is Chair of Laois / Offaly Greens and had said to me about going to speak to them about Transition stuff sometime - he works at Carlow IT where he can be contacted on 059 9170554 / 059 9170425 or at

Good luck - let me know how it goes
