''Hi Lorraine. Lovely to hear from you and glad to be able to inform you that I am fully recovered from Carrantoohill.  We were absolutely delighted with the accommodation and how well you looked after us while we were there. We have no definite plans to return to Kerry just yet though I think Mount Brandon might be on our hit list sometime in the future and we will certainly be in touch with you then. Please pass on our regards to the lovely ladies who cooked for us too.  And to yourself and Pat, very many thanks for the very warm welcome. Kind regards Ger'' Ger Forrestall
