Hi Bobby

I hope you are well.

Paddy has asked me to email you to pass on his thanks and appreciation to Donna and the staff for the fantastic hospitality put on for our Executive colleagues on Monday.

Our Executive thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Gaol, and the lunch!!

Thanks again, and kind regards

Fascinating Experience

Hi Bobby,

Ourselves at Ratoath College just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourselves for having us this afternoon. All the students had a great time touring the gaol and they all found it to be a fascinating experience seeing what life was like as a prisoner. Please send on our thanks to all the team for the setup and warm welcome, we are all thrilled.

Kindest regards,

Keith Conlan.

Extremely Interesting

Hi Bobby,

Thank you for organising our visit to the gaol and tours of the Falls and Shankill. Our students found it all extremely interesting. Could you pass on our thanks to the guides especially as the weather was so awful.

We are planning to visit again next September so I will be in touch next summer to arrange.

Thanks again for all of your help,

Andy

Hello!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for hosting our History Society on Saturday, everybody had a great time! We really appreciate the extra efforts made to organise the Troubles Walking Tour and found the entire experience really insightful as Irish History students. We hope to return again sometime in the future.

Everyone had a great time

Hi Bobby

Just want to say a big thanks to all the team for their help yesterday.  It was clearly a busy day so we are grateful of the lengths you went to, to accommodate our group.  Everyone had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the tour.  The last time I was in the gaol was when it was tour guide led so I was really impressed with the changes that have been made / use of technology etc.

Thanks again

All the best

Very Good Audio and Videos

Hi Bobby

It went great! The bus was there on time and a very pleasant and helpful bus driver. The tour was great, its self-directed but there are very good audio and videos in the cells where the students could learn lots at their own pace. The girl at the front office (I wish I got her name) was brilliant and so helpful. The catering was good too we had a coffee/tea and scone each in a nice room at the end of the tour. All in all I thought it was very good, thanks for all your help with organising it!

Many Thanks
