Name: American Bridget
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.

Name: American Bridget
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.

Name: Bridget
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?

Name: Bridget
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.

Name: Cora Harrison
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.

Name: Bridget
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.

Message:Aisling:Are you Ciara's sister?
Aoife: If you, or anyone else, send an opening few lines to the Story Club, I'll use that.
Bridget:That's a nice clear explanation. You'd make a good teacher. It's very interesting for us over here in ireland to hear about faraway places.
Caoimhe:Many thanks - that's a good ending.
Rosie: When I was writing the book, I thought Nessa would make the other decision, but when it came to it I thought the Viking would not be right.
Summer: Well done.
Ardal: Glad you like the site as well as they books.

Message:Hi Cora: I met you when you came to our school and I have been reading your books since then. I love them all. I hope you come again. I hadn't read anything by you when you came the first time, but now that I have I've got loads of questions for you like do you think that Nessa made the right decision.

Message:Hi Caoimhe:
I would like to come to Ireland. Idaho is a pretty exciting place to live, though.

Hi Aoife:
Idaho is in the Northwestern United States, around Oregon and Washington. If you look at it sideways it looks like a cooking pan. The southern part, where I live, is wider than the northern part, which is called the 'Panhandle'. Sorry, but I'm not supposed to give my age on the Internet.

Message:Hi Cora, I'm from Dublin and I am am just writing to say that I think your books are excellent. This site is cool. This is my first time visiting it.
I think Saudi Arabia is not in Africa. It's somewhere in the east. I must look it up in my atlas.
That's all for now. Talk to you soon.

Name: Caoimhe
Message:Hi Cora, I finished the story. It's not very good, but at least I did it. Will you start a new story soon - not a school story this time. we've had too many of these.

Hi Summer: What do you want us to do? Do you want us to correct your English. Most of us are not too good at English. I'm always getting told off for bad spelling - though I am getting better.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Summer: Thank you for your long message which you sent through the Story Club. I'm sorry that you are feeling discouraged. You probably hoped that this website would solve your problems, but really it's just a website for the children - most of them under twelve - who read my books. I don't think you can expect it to teach you English. I understand your frustration, and I'm sorry that you did not find my advice helpful.
I think that you might be better sending short messages and information about Saudi Arabia and then possibly children will respond. That's not in my hands; it's up to the children, themselves.

Message:Caoimhe: yes, I agree - the story needs finsihing up - this happens often when those who have contributed a lot to the story suddenly drop out. Please do finish it if you have an idea.

Message:Bridget: Take your time - but if you do decide to do something I would be delighted to help.

Patricia: the important thing about being a writer is to have the ability to put into words what others just feel. Have a go and see how it works out.

Aoife: That was just some spam that you saw before I deleted it. The Brehon of the Burren might be a bit like 'Murder at Drumshee' and 'Another Murder at drumshee' but these are for adults. I tried looking at your symbol sideways, but still don't know what it means!
