Looking Back, Looking Forward

The light of evening snakes its way through successive doors in the lower yard at Ardbraccan, County Meath. And so 2018 comes to a close. But soon dawn will break and a new year make its debut. The Irish Aesthete wishes all friends and followers the very best fortune for 2019.

    Dear Robert,

    Sincere thanks for continuing your appraisal of Ireland’s built heritage. Each article you produce is meticulously well researched, yet presented in a thoroughly engaging way. You have continued to demonstrate that your intellect is equal to your task. Unlike others, your blog never deviates from its raison d’etre. There is a danger that followers continuing to bestow compliments would produce a degree of complacency; thankfully, with The Irish Aesthete this has not been the case.

    I wish you a prosperous and prodigious 2019, and very much look forward to be continually enlightened in the year ahead.

    With every good wish,

    Sorry! That should be ‘SO many’ not ‘some many’
