Editorial Note

The millenium seems a good time to hand over to someone else. I am going to abuse my position as editor to thank all the contributors to the seven volumes of Classics Ireland. I would also like to express my gratitude to Professor Smith and the Classical Association of Ireland for allowing me to edit this. I have had enormous fun, writing fan mail to people I admire on the pretext of asking them to write for us, (to my surprise and delight some of them took me seriously), and for allowing me complete freedom in choosing the colours of the covers (some choices more successful than others), and for not complaining about my running heads (creating these was my favourite task). I must also thank Andrew Erskine who, despite the utmost provocation has not yet murdered me, and who is responsible for putting this on the web. I would also like to thank anyone who has ever been encouraging (even vaguely) about this enterprise.
Please send contributions to Professor Smith at the address below. Ideally articles should not be more than 5,000 words and book reviews not more than 800 words unless agreed otherwise. Please do keep writing!
