Greetings my Friends.

It is with a very sad heart when I tell all of you my fellow re-enactors, that I have decided to leave Irish Re-enactment. I am so tired and I can't keep going anymore, my heart is not in it .

Yours in knighthood always.

Seán my friend. Get a grip! Go have a nice walk and a drink. Clear the head, get a good nights sleep and remember that tomorrow is a new start. Believe me I have many reasons to turn my back on this lifestyle but I cannot. No decisions should be made in haste.
Your friend

Salve Sean,

Good men with Good Heart's are always needed, to quote your own analogy you too have a "scorpion on your back'.

Hello Sean,
Im sad to hear this. Having met you at gigs and from your organiseation of Kilmallock I know that you have been very comitted to the hobby. I dont know your reasons for your decision. However if it has any thing to do with being fed up with politics - then there is a grave lesson in that for all of us.

I wish you well in whatever your doing

Hey Sean,
Chill and take a break. I know there has been much frustration on the scene the past few years, sure we're burned out with dealing with it here to the extent were getting snappy. Remember why you do this and who's cool to do it with. Then just go do it for yourself and with the guys you know are sound in your version of things if it suits you.

There is a number of us dropped off the scene for a break in the recent past so from experience; don't be afraid to go on sabbatical and take the pressure off.

Just to repeat what everyone else has been saying, take some time off but please, please, please come back, Reenacting in Ireland needs decent people like you Sean.

When i started out with Medren you came down to us a few times for training, never with any feeling of superiority, or acting like you were better than us poor newbies, you made myself and many others really feel welcome and part of the reenactment community as a whole.

Thank you Sean,
Lorna Dane, She's a babe!

Seriously, don't leave us Sean, a lot of us still need you. You've been very inspirational to a lot of us, not just as a trainer and reenacter, but as a very decent person. We'd be worse off without you.

Sean man, gota echo what everyone else here is saying, I've known you since I started reenactment, and I cant remember EVER having a bad word to say about you or a bad thing to think of you. as Brendan said there, u never had an air of superiority about you, were alwayz willing to help others out (including myself) with kit, gear, advice, info... and u have some of the best stories from reenactment and outside of it that I've had the pleasure to sit and listen to! As has been said, Sean man, we need ya. Reenactment in Ireland needs you. If a break is what you need, then thats what you need, but you know you'll miss us, you gota come back! And I know bec and many others will agree with me!

I agree.

If each of us took the sum total of all the hassle and needless conflict over the years, and it does grate and chafe and fester, then there would be few if any involved in Living History.

Do take a break Sean; forget the Machiavellian types and come back when ur refreshed.
