Hello. My name is Philip Cunningham. I live in Bellbrook, Ohio, which is in the United States of America. I am contemplating visiting Clonmel in May 2019. I want to play golf during the day and dine and relax at night. I love golf and like pubs. I am 59 years old and will most likely be visiting unaccompanied. My sister, Clare, may travel with me. Clare does not play golf.

I realize that this is a strange request. Is there a member of the parish with whom I can correspond regarding the visit I am planning? I just have some basic questions such as if I am a single, will I be able to play golf? Perhaps I can obtain the services of a driver for the duration of my visit?

Thank you and all God’s blessings.

Most respectfully,
Philip Cunningham
