[4qd-bannvalley] Perry of Garvagh

Hello Linde. Thank you very much for your response. For my part I have been luck in the
past when I have played the long shot. It is not to be so this time, by the look of
things. If English then I should change my focus to Christchurch in New Zealand for this
is the nature of settlement in that city.

Thanks again. Regards Greg.
