This has been an experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I would like to thank everyone that has supported and encouraged me along the way. I have met so many great people who have become friends and to whom I hope to keep in touch with. On behalf of me, Garry, my wife, Wen, and children, Sancia and Ruairi, we wish you all the best and good luck. Slainte.

You have been one of the regulars that I bearded with and I am glad you were a part of Whiskerino. I've loved all of your shots and I can surely say that I thoroughly enjoyed several of your pictures. You are a great guy and I wish you and your family the best. :) Thanks.

SQUIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I AM SUPPOSED TO BE COMMENTING NOT LAUGHING!!!!!
AND NOW I AM CRYING!!! grr!!
you trickster!!!

Maaannn!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is no fair!! seriously!!! its not sneak day today!!
you snoook in wife AND princess!! LOL! ;)

maan, i am not quite sure what to type into here.
At first i instantly gravitated towards your whiskerino participation because i felt we needed to stick together. And being of Irish ancestory i felt an instant affinity with you.
While comming to whiskerino apparently without any existing photography background, you have progressed in leaps & bounds. You have a big heart & have been a true champion. To say you have never grown a 4 month beard before? you have exelled in all measures and come through at the end victorious!!!
it is easy to see you have a WONDERFULL family & you are a GREAT father. & i have valued your friendship through whiskerino second to none.
You have entertained us all with your light hearted humour and participated in theme days with the greatest pure enthusiasm ever seen in a whiskerino.

I have to thank your gorgeous and lovely wife for her support & appreciation too. I wish you both the best of a long & happy life together with your children.

The beard suits you perfectly, and you did not give in to the razor!
I hope you keep it, or a beard of some sort.

I will try & hook up with you sometime, as my family do spend some time in Ireland. I think we should be able to chat on MSN messenger if you have it?
i will put my email in the about section or i will look for your email on here.

BEST wishes!!!
you have been an important player towards my moral support through this thing.

Be well my friend & thankyou to the squire family!!! =)

Cheers to you as well. You've been one of my favorites and I really hope I get to visit up north at some point. Your photos have only increased the want to do so.

Thanks for being a regular guy who posted amazing photos, be they funny or awe-inspiring scenery, they were always entertaining. I added you on facebook; stay in touch.

Hey man. It was awesome growing a beard with someone so close and yet just as distant as everyone else. I've never been to Irland (though @Emma has made it across a few times for the rugby). I hope to go one day - and meet up with you for a dram.

Sláinte, my good friend.
