I met Alison Causten in Belfast some years ago. It was a total fluke. I had been following her postings on the Armagh list serve for a year or so and when I signed in at the front desk at PRONI, I noticed that her name was a few lines above mine. I checked out the dozen or so patrons and decided on the most likely candidate. It proved to be Alison herself. After our day of research, we went out for dinner and a bottle of wine and had a grand old yakadoodle. Her web site, which she assembled after this chance meeting, is full of all kinds of thoroughly documented materials. One future point of connetcion for us is likely to be along the GILMORE line - but we have yet to nail that one down.
