Hi Tara, congrats on baby Eshan - a precious time for you now to enjoy. Yes, I did hear Ronnie Faye speak. She is inspiring. The organisation I work with connects with Pavee Point and Irish Traveller Movement. I'll wrtie again. Take care, Marie

Hi Tara, I finally joined up after your invite in November. Hope all is well with you. Sorry I missed you in Dublin at the Conference last year - I was there but only for the first day. It was enough for me. Will write an email soon. Marie

Hey Tara, thanks so much for connecting me up! And how exciting that you're nearly there! Your belly must be huge by now! Hope it all goes well!
And Leon Guy has been talking to me about your conference in Brisbane but we haven't sat down to discuss it properly yet. I think he was hoping to send someone.
I don't work with him on aday to day level anymore as I'm based in another place about 14 hours away (because the train is so slow, not because it's really that far away)- I see him once a month or so. CONGEH is growing, they've got some funding for various habitat projects.
Meanwhile the project I'm working on is still going through it's early stages, that means we have things we get so excited about, and then news that threatens our still wobbly foundations, a true rollercoaster I guess, and that's what makes life interesting. Sometimes I wonder why I'm here and whether I shouldn't be doing something simpler with less pressure- but I guess I'll save that for when I'm a bit more tired.
I guess your pregnancy and the new baby has meant that you have changed down a gear, but I'm sure you're as vibrant and dynamic as ever.
Brilliant to be in touch with you!
xx Rebecca

Hi Tara, really nice to hear from you! I'm now living in Totnes and doing some cities work with the Transition Network. Feeling much more alive since leaving Glasgow, but missing the rest of Scotland. How are you and your little baking bean going?
Lots of love,

Hi Tara

Happy New Year ! All go here, some good things happening with our full time students and the Cloughjordan ecovillage. We are bringing 40 first years out to the village to do a problem based learning week, where they will spend time looking at sustainability issues.
