Thanks Fergus! And I see you've already beaten me to informing you about the postings from the Cork events ; )

Hi Swifty,
I dont think we've met but I would just like to compliment your group on an excellent event.
Photos are fabulous. I wouldn't like to meet the young warrior on the battlefield when he is older as he is excellent at the moment :lol:
Well done .

Hi Jackboot,
Thanks for admiring my son and my snaps, they've been enhanced and posted by photo wiz "Dr. Swift". The wee man is Tadhg Montague, poster child for Heritage Week, he's managed to appear in their blurb for the past three years, and only just turned 7 in July. Glad you liked the cut of our jib. Alot of plotting and planning went into the preparation of this event of which Claíomh and Swifty were key. Due to personal circumstances MHS (Montague Heritage Services) hasn't been as active as I would like but I hope to rectify that in the near future working with "Claíomh" and other groups at top events.

Regards,

Jessica (Jess) de Búrca-Montague

Thanks for the comments James.

Nah I don't think we've met either, but I look forward to seeing your group on the circuit some time too - you're involved in the Napoleonic end of things I'm assuming? Yeah, as Jess says, Tadhg Montague is the young man's name - some day he'll finish the job and bring us all to heel!

Hi Jess and Swifty
I am with Lord Edwards Own reenactment group here in Kildare.
We portray the 86th Leinster Reg. of foot in the Napoleonic era and travel all over Europe.
I look forward to meeting you all in MHS on the reenactment circuit.
Tadhg and the rest of your warriors are a credit to you .
I wish your group all the very best for your future endeavours.
