T'was a goodie Michael, but Holly's a bit miffed that her pic. of Hetty, on page 30, was credited to someone else...!!
I did enjoy the articles on "Kitty", "Royal Visits" and "Hawthorns" adventures on Ree...!!

On behalf of all the lurkers and semi-lurkers, from whom you'll never/seldom hear and because I'm only now catching up on the last 2.5 years of the mag, congrats to all on what is a stunningly professional piece of journalism.

Thanks Mick and my apologies to Holly. I never picked up on the fact that it
was her photo. I'll publish a correction next time.

Thanks Colin.....I've conveyed your message. She was muttering something about bottles of petrol and a bus trip to Galway, but I managed to persuade her that a whinge to her friends on facebook would probably suffice...!!

OK, lest there be any doubt....

The photo of "River Pilot Hetty" on in the Dublin Dribbles section on P 30
of the Autumn Issue of 2011 should be credited to Holly Farrell.
Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa.
I can't even blame Mick Slevin. He got it right in his submission.
I'm sorry, what more can I say. Holly, will you ever forgive me ?

Ditto Colin, fab, congrats to you, your team and all the contributors. The quality of the branch sections was particularly impressive with wonderful pics that say more than 100s of words.

Agree with all the good stuff said above, just seems to get better and better with each edition. Not sure if it's my imagination but there seem to be many more articles in it now than there used to be.
PS Colin, seen Chang sha and 74 today, both seem to have survived the visit of Katia unscathed......

Yes, congratulations once again. Todays local paper day here so having digested the local content I found time to read IWN, another fine copy.

Leaving aside the quality of the content briefly, how on earth do they print a comparatively low circulation magazine to such a high print quality for the money?

Methinks the big UK printers could have a fight on their hands if there were a dozen or so titles printed here. Oui? eg classic cars, tractors, train mags, smallholders, stamp weekly, hairdressers partings, whatever

Colin>>>Thank you for the kind words. Yes, there are a few more articles,
partly because I'm trying out some new ideas to see how folks react and
partly because our ad count is down ! Indeed if anyone has any other
feedback on what they like or don't like, please let me know.
I would like to get a few more technical articles if anyone is minded to
write them but I'll consider anything.

Best Wishes,

Colin>>>>That kind of quality is actually fairly easy with modern layout
techniques and full colour printing processes. (It's all done with
compewthers you know....) As regards the money, well, we do get some income
from ads but it doesn't cover the full cost of editorial, layout, printing &
distribution. Up to a year or so ago, the magazine generated a surplus for
the association but alas, in these troubled times......
