"Thanks for all the great work. I am part of a small but growing number of Orthodox Christians in the Republic of Ireland. I live in County Kerry in the southwest part of the country, and we have just started a small mission parish in Tralee. Nationally, we are up from 11,000 Orthodox "self identifiers" in the 2006 census to 49,000 in the 2012 census. I love all the programs you broadcast and use the podcasts on my mobile for my long drive to work and back. I do hope that you continue the good work. As we say here in Ireland, "God Bless the Work.""
