Message:Katie & Brittany: Your story and poem are on the board now - sorry, I've been very busy.

Laura: Doesn't time pass! I was just thinking that my first Drumshee book came out in 1997 - nearly nine years ago. Soon my earliest fans will be having their own children.

Message:Alannah: yes, I think that is a good idea. I might leave until Saturday, though, as I have my small grandson from London staying at the moment and he keeps us very busy!

Ali: I'm pleased you like World War II. I enjoyed writing that as it meant that characters from other books such as Kitty from Titanic and Mike and Bridget from Drumshee Rebels came back into my life again.

Declan: Don't ever worry about spelling. Ideas are what count. These days the computer sorts out spelling very well.

Message:Hi, I hope everybody had a good Valentine's Day. I got no cards, but nobody in my class ever does get any cards, unless somebody's playing a prank on the other person.
Cora: Do you have any good ideas for a story yet? Maybe we should do a historical one, like Caoimhe's idea about Bridget's ancestors moving to America.
Also, I think that the change to the site was a good idea. It looks very good.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I'm very fond of the name Bridget; I seem to have a Bridget in most of my books and of course she was the main character in The Drumshee Rebels - and she did end up going to America. She was in the World War II book, Chloe, back on holidays to Ireland like so many Americans.
Thanks for your ideas Ciaran and Caoimhe. I'll leave it for another few days and then I'll start another story.

Name: Chloe
Message:Hi everyone Happy Valentine's Day! I won't say how many cards I got, but it begins with the letter z. Still I'm only in year five Mostly it's Year Six that get them.
I like the idea of the story. It's a bit like The Secret of 1798 where Caitriona went to France. Perhaps this Bridget could go to France and something bad happen and then go to England eventually to Americia.

Message:Hi Caoihme:
Thanks. Happy Valentines Day. I think I said that already. Valentine's Day is a kind of boy/girl friend thing here, too, but everyone celebrates it. I have read Murder at Drumshee, but not Murder at Drumshee. The Brehon Law in Murder at Drumshee is very interesting.

Name: Caoimhe
Message:Hi Cora, I was thinking that a story about Bridget's ancester leaving Ireland and going out to America would be great. The last few stories have had a bit too much fantasy for some people's tastes so a historical one would be a change.
Hi Bridget: Happy Valentine's Day to you, too. Here it's more boy friend/girl friend occasion. I got a card - it was on my desk. Everyone is trying to guess who put it there.
By the way, have you ever read Murder at Drumshee and Murder Strikes Again? These books would tell you a lot about Brehon law. My mum has read them and she thought they were very good.

Message:Hi Cora:
Happy Valentine's Day! Do you celebrate it in Ireland. It's a very popular holiday in America. People give candy to each other, along with flowers and other things. My parents gave gifts to our whole family today, and my brother, sister, and I did something for them, too. My sister just acted like she normally did, which is practically a comic act, my brother gave everyone a hug, and I turned on my parent's song (It Had To Be You).

Message:My name is Chloe and I live in England. My cousins gave me one of your books for Christmas and I loved it. It was called World War II. I wish you would write some more books that are to do with England. I live in Kent and I know that place where the airprot is.

Message:Hi Roscommon Bridget:
We might be related. My ancestors traveled to France from Ireland in the 19th century, though. They also lived in England for a while, then came to America.
We don't really celebrate Saints Days here. Probably because most people are Mormon, which is a religion that was started in America by a man called Joseph Smith.

Name: Roscommon Bridget
Message:Hi American Bridget, I'm called after my grandmother and she was called after her mother, her grandmother and her grandmother's aunt was called Bridget and she went out to American. Perhaps we're related!
My mum is very keen on family history so that's why I know all about all the Bridgets.
On St Bridget's day here we make a speciall cross, called a St Bridget's cross. It's made from rushes. It's too complicated to explain - you twist and weave them in and out of each other and the centre is a square with the four arms sticking out. My granny's cottage has tons of them pinned up year after year to the rafters.

Message:Hi Cora:
Thanks for telling me about the laws. I'm always wanting to learn about laws in other countries. Probably because I want to be a lawyer.
It's amazing that women had rights granted to them. Until the 20th century women didn't have equal rights everywhere in America.

Message:Hi Bridget:
That's great! I've only met a few people with the same name as me and only one of them was spelled the same way. My mom named me Bridget before she found out that it was my great-great grandmother's name. Are you named after someone in your family?

Message:Hi Bridget: I am from Limerick in the south-west of Ireland and we share a name. Perhaps one of your ansestors was called Bridget.
Hi Cora: Love your books
Hi Joanna: I think Nessa was quite right. I think that Fintan was nicer.

Message:Joanne: Thanks for your message. Which book is your favourite?
Bridget: 6 counties of Ireland still belong to Britain so they are governed by British law; the other 26 are under Irish law.
Brehon laws were the old Irish laws. They lasted until about four hundred years ago in remote places like Co. Clare (where I live). They were very humane laws and didn't exact the savage penalties of hanging and torturing that were common elsewhere in the medieval era. They also granted rights to women which, under British law, they did not get until the 20th century.

Message:Hi Cora:
Thanks. I think the only time I've knowingly taught someone was when I taught my friend's little brother the nines times table, though.
I know that Ireland has counties, but do each of the counties have a different set of laws, or are they mostly the same.
If you don't want to answer my question you don't have to.
