A Message from Mike & Carina - A Letter from Ireland:

WHO ARE WE?
Hi there, we are Mike & Carina Collins and since 2013 we have run A Letter From Ireland out of our cottage in County Cork, Ireland.

WHAT WE DO.
Each Sunday morning, Mike sits down and writes a Letter to people of Irish ancestry all over the world. Now, let’s be honest - the letter IS delivered by email but the tone is conversational and nicely one-to-one. The letter aims to be chatty, informative and educational. In it, we talk about people, places and events of Irish interest - both on the island of Ireland and all over your “Irish” world. 

When we started in 2013 the letter went to 5 people - and it now (late 2017) goes out to over 30,000 people across the four “corners” of the world. We have published three volumes of collected letters and have recently also started a “spoken” letter (which is also known as a podcast!).

WHY PATREON?
As the reach of our letter increases, we face some interesting choices! We want to keep the letter free for as many people as possible - but we also want to avoid taking on board - let’s face it - annoying advertising and sponsors!

So, what should we do? Well, we felt that we would go to our fans, readers and listeners and give them an opportunity to become Patrons in exchange for some nice rewards - as well as the satisfying feeling that A Letter from Ireland will continue to survive and grow in this world of ours.

“Patreon” (the platform you are on at the moment) provides the mechanics to help you become a Patron of A Letter from Ireland.


HOW IT WORKS FOR YOU.
Should you decided to go ahead (thank you very much) - you can see various contribution tiers on the right side of this page (it may be in a slightly different place if you are on mobile). Based on how much you decide to contribute monthly, you will receive the rewards specified for each level.

On the left side of your screen, you can see more about our goals. As the overall amount committed from our Patrons increases - we stretch ourselves to reach a new goal with your involvement.

So, take your time - have a look at the Rewards and Goals, decide which works best for you and whichever you choose, remember that your involvement will ensure that A Letter from Ireland will grow on a steady foundation. And we will have a lot of fun together along the way!
Slán agus Go Raibh Míle Maith Agat,
Mike & Carina.
