Terry and I received a long and newsy letter from our good friend, Gerry Bohan. He has been keeping us informed about Leitrim happenings and we're always happy to hear the news. His most recent letter was so interesting that it gave me an idea, which I discussed with the rest of the staff, and it was thumbs up all the way around! I thought it would be interesting to our newsletter recipients and clientelle to add a new page written by Gerry, who is experienced in covering sports news for two of the Co. Leitrim newspapers. After the New Year, he has agreed to write a monthly column that will appear on his own page, The Leitrim Connection at, and it will also go out to our newsletter subscribers. Welcome, Gerry! We also received a Christmas card, along with a gift, from Thomas and Maura Casey. We were very happy to hear from them as Thomas had been ill for several weeks this past year. He is doing well and back to his old self again, which was fabulous news. Also, Irene is now teaching and lecturing three days a week at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth in Co. Kildare. Congratulations! They sent us the Christmas Special 2007 issue of Ireland's #1 Food Magazine, "Easy Food". This issue is packed with yummy Irish holiday recipes and decorating ideas. It was very much appreciated since I love to cook.

Now that I have updated you on, on behalf of the entire staff, I would like to thank all of you for your business and support. We wish you a wonderful holiday and all the best in the New Year.

Sláinte! (Good Health!)
