I just wanted to let you know that our group had a great trip. Jim Gaw again did a wonderful job as our driver. Except for a heavy rain the first day things worked out about as well as they could have. I do want to mention to you how much we enjoyed the 19th Lodge at Ballybunion. The accommodations were much superior to everything else we had during the trip. The proprietors, Mary and James Beasley could not have been more accommodating. Thanks again.
