Re: Conflict of Interest with Related Party Transaction

I can understand people being cautious based on past experiences, but I do think it is unfair to automatically assume everyone is guilty until proven innocent as a result. I think the least Pat deserves is some time in his new role. In terms of my own conflict of interest I do know Pat for many year...

Re: Wildwater @ Eye Cinema Galway

Online ticket sales going well for this event - good interest not just locally in the west but from further afield as well ... we already have some travelling from the Pale planning to make a weekend of it and do some paddling over the next day or so after ... and for those who do want to be back in...
