I’d like to first of all acknowledge the time and generosity of Catherine Behan the website designer for Kimmage Development Studies Centre, and Niall Brosnan the IT guy there, for their help in the design and hosting of this website.
Hollingsworth Cycles, Templeogue. After long delays with another bike shop, when the Surly LHT I ordered finally arrived it was the wrong spec! Time was getting a bit tight but luckily Hollingsworth had a frame and offered to build one for me to my spec. They gave me a very good discount too which is much appreciated. Thanks a lot to Michael the manager, and Andy the workshop manager.
Celtic Link. They have regular sailings Rosslare-Cherbourg and offered to sponsor me my passage – and a bunk! – to France. Thanks Rory.
Padmore and Barnes, Kilkenny. A great outdoors store and Peter Roberts knows his stuff, a source of information and advice. Peter has arranged with some suppliers to help with gear for the trip.
