I am enclosing my renewal for your marvellous newsletter. I am a librarian for the past 30 years, and I have never seen a newsletter or magazine that provided so much invaluable information in each issue. Not just the info. about moving to Ireland, but most especially the hundreds of items on art and crafts, associations and events and first person articles – if you merely collected and published in one ‘back’ - as is, several years of your publication it would be a golden resource for all who have an interest in Ireland today and yesterday. I am not being half as enthusiastic as I feel…!
Ms. R.P. ( recently moved to Ireland from the USA).

Heartiest congratulations on the magnificent publication you produce – a magazine that is informative, and provides a wide variety of interesting, well researched topics relating to Ireland. Whilst I have never visited that Country, the regular reading of INSIDE IRELAND makes me feel as if I have been there. Could you run this enquiry? Contact is sought from any Corcorans descended from Michael Corcoran and Sarah Egan who married at Banagher, Ireland 14th May 1800. (This couple were my gr. gr. Grandparents). Their eldest son, Peter, born 1804, emigrated to Victoria, Australia, in 1840 with his wife, Mary Ann Temple. Peter’s younger brother Daniel, married Catherine Kenny. Anyone with information about Michael and Sarah, please contact INSIDE IRELAND.
Mr. B.J.C. Sydney, Australia.

WE are very happy with INSIDE IRELAND. It in fact contains not only very useful, but very delightful information.
Mr. M. U. Hamburg, Germany

This is really to thank you for taking so much trouble with the directions you sent me. The map is brilliant and will be a tremendous help – I always pass on my INSIDE IRELAND to my English friends.
Mr. M.C. Oxford, England.

I received your special real estate edition of INSIDE IRELAND on Tuesday, and have hardly been able to put it down. Normally I love my job, but I have really resented it this week because it has taken time away from reading this issue.
Mrs. T.K.G. Evanston, IL

I have intended for some time to write to express my high regard for your great magazine. I have found it to be all, really more than, I had expected. By now I greet each arrival with all of the enthusiasm usually reserved for meeting an old and dear friend…it is very easy for me to recommend it without reservation to anyone with an interest in Ireland.

As a non Irish with no ties to Ireland, I have found your articles very beneficial in making some preliminary decisions in my current plans for spending the summer months in Dublin after my retirement…..I am impressed by the quality and the plain good sense of your magazine. It has been a tremendous help to me and I look forward to continuing to read it both here and after I have established myself in Ireland.
Ms. L.W. Old Hickory, TN.

Enclosed is my renewal cheque. Sometimes I think I get twice as much out of INSIDE IRELAND living here instead of the USA. We both continue to enjoy it immensely.
Ms. A.B. (Ireland and the USA).

Just received your wonderful INSIDE IRELAND. Continue the good work and let us know more about those fascinating places to stay – in Ireland and also your Top travel Tips abroad.
Mr. P. McM. London, England.

Your article on ghosts got us excited. Could you please give us information on Haunted Houses in Ireland? We’ll be visiting later on, and would love a night or two of being scared senseless or at least spooked and amused…..
Ms. V.C. Windsor Locks, CT.

We received your packet and are overwhelmed with all the information you sent. I enclose a check to cover the postage and thank you for the time and trouble you have put into our query.
Mr. And Mrs. W.C. Auburn Hills, MI

My first issue of INSIDE IRELAND arrived yesterday and I have almost memorised it. I am moving to Ireland shortly without ever having been there before. The Irish tourist Board and Consulate have sent some excellent material and I have many knowledgeable friends who are helping me to plan, but nothing compares to your newsletter. It is easy to see why you have survived for so long when others have failed. You give the impression of being a personal friend who will help me, never mind all the other subscribers.
Ms. J.W. Bellevue, WA

As an American College Professor who has taught courses in both Irish History as well as that of Irish America, I have found your publication often to be an unanticipated treasure chest of fascinating and rich tid-bits and insight. These have been both personally pleasurable and found their way into my teaching and lectures. Thanks and keep up the good work.
Prof. V.P. Worcester, MA I

I was so glad of your Discount Voucher on my recent visit to Ireland. I saved well over $100, and my initial $40 investment was over doubled with the voucher, let alone all the information and enjoyment while reading INSIDE IRELAND.
Ms. B.R. Roberts, WI

And that’s just a sample of the mail that comes in our post bag each week!
