    I loved “If these wall could talk” it was a wonderful piece of research. I would love if you would keep me informed if you do get your maritime history online. I would be more than happy to host guest posts from you on the subject if you would like.
    You can contact me at limerickslife@gmail.com

    Hi Sharon
    I never knew about your brilliant web site until my friend, Liz Emery, posted it on her Facebook page.
    I loved the old photographs of Limerick and also your work on the Astrea shipwreck. I have a lot of information about the Maritime history of Limerick which I intend to put on the Internet, as soon as I learn how to set it up.

    In the meantime, I would be delighted to share any info with you. I am the guy who researched the history of the Limerick Athenaeum for Seamus Flynn which he put on the Internet back in 1997.
    Many thanks
    James
