    1984.

    Forgot to add, my letter to Kate Bush, ran:

    Dear Kate,
    Elvis is dead. John Lennon is dead. The greatest rocker of all, Ludwig Van Beethoven is dead. We your fans are pining for some new songs.
    Enclosed a photo of a painting I did. of you. Please return. Yours sincerely...etc.

    Kate had not released anything since 1982.

    Yes ergo2 we go mad......... occasionally. Even to Ashford castle. It is in the news tonight. Maureen and I stayed there when rates were comparatively low one February some years ago. Probably the best hotel we ever stayed in. The Shelbourne a close second



    The sculpture depicting John Wayne and Maureen O' Hara is close by in Cong.

    Cong has gained a lot for being the scene of TQM.

    A Mr Mellotte who owned a pub in the nearby village of The Neale was the spitting image of John Wayne. Many used to call in to meet him.

    The Hotel has changed hands a number of times since it was a Guinness family fishing and shooting lodge. Noel Huggard first developed it as a hotel. The present owners have refurbished it at great expense. Its future seems bright.
