We would like to express our gratitude to Dr Paul Tuohy for his guidance and support throughout the life-cycle of this project. Also, to Russell Pepper for his involvement and support. We also want to extend our thanks to other academics, such as Lewis Breen for his prior work on this project, and those attending the previous presentations for their helpful comments.
Further thanks must go to John and Christine Booth who were kind enough to not only answer our questions, but to suggest routes to visit generation locations on the island, teach us about the community's priorities, discuss the current network and how it came about, and for their wonderful hospitality in the form of tea, coffee and biscuits.
