Dr Orfhlaith Ni Bhriain University Limerick.

Many thanks to you guys: Majella's course has taught me virtually everything - just working through those ornaments was priceless help. And the lessons are cunningly well graded to make you work at situations that are just difficult enough, but not too much. Good teacher!

Ian Stock Colchester, England

Go raibh míle maith agat, Ernestine. I really like your lessons and your overall presentation has helped big time. This site is a treasure. Keep up the good work.
