Sleeve Notes

Special Thanks To: Sean Boylan the herbalist from Dunboyne for putting my body back in tune with my spirit and introducing me to the beauty of herbs. Pete St. John for his inspiration and his ability to write the definitive Ballad.

Pat Ingo for making me think when I talk to him. Maurice Clarke-Barry for making me smile. Noel Bridgeman for all the tilings that can't be put into words. Fran for keeping it going.

Andrew Boland for knowing when not to interfere with the flow of inspiration that he can instigate by not stopping it. Also Derek Nelson for guitars for Brush and Matthew.
