    Here's a still (taken, I think, by C&L member Philip Bedford).

    Hi Ilvaporista - let Micheal Kennedy know you're coming over and he'll arrange for someone to be there. I could possibly come up from Cork at the same time (I'm also a Cambrian fan, btw!).
    Dromod is easy to get to from Dublin - 2 hours up the Sligo line from Connolly. If staying overnight, we recommend the Copper Still hotel (http://thecopperstill.ie/) whose owner is very supportive of the C&L. If you have a hire car, then it's possible to drive much of the route of the original C&L and its branch to Arigna.

    You can contact Micheal by going to the Avonside 'Nancy' Restoration Group page on Facebook, choose 'Members' and scroll down to Moderators. You can then send him a pm.

    Thanks very much for the information and when I have plans finalised I will be in contact. The plan is to hire a car and tour round for a week. I have to go to see the family ancestry near Dublin.
