Many thanks to Richard and Kirsty Pitkin, Lorraine Carpenter, Joe Pieczenko, Richard Fryer, Mike Nelson, my brother Paul Tweed and sister Lauren Ellis (and her husband Graham) plus Niall Keegan and Sandra Joyce (University of Limerick) whose inspiration and help I value so dearly.

And to all the dear friends along the way without whom I’d forget to laugh and stop a while.

Bless you all 🙂
