Don't believe we have met...........were you at the IBM convention in Bangor Co. Down this year??
That would have been the best place to meet magicians, local magicians, who could offer you the advice, help and support you need. If you need someone in Ireland.......I am just down the road in Kilkenny, feel free to cantact me anytime for a chat. Being a close-up performer I may be able to help with your ideas on cards. From your profile cards seems to be your main magicial interest and it is in this area that I can best be of service to you.
