  1. My cousins Marilyn Kelley Martucci and Trish Kelley Micheli are returning to Ardmore in April for a visit. I would like to join them by flying into Dublin and hiring a driver to Ardmore. They suggested Des Fitzgerald may be able to advise me. How may I contact him by email? Thank You!

  2. Your information above says Bus Éireann route 260 serves Ardmore from Cork City, but I was just looking on the bus’ site, to find out exact times, and it does NOT stop in Ardmore now – is that true? If not, what’s the closest town I could get a cab from, please? I really want to come see Ardmore! Thanks
