Heather will certainly accept a cheque. It is the way I have paid for and received my permit for the past 10 years or more.
Send a cheque, a self addressed envelope to return it in and a note of your name, address and previous years permit number and you'll get your permit through the letterbox in a few days.
Hope you're keeping well Inisisle?
Since you asked nicely, I'll tell you.
It's no secret that I have rheumatoid arthritis and so my immune system is compromised. I'm on two drugs, Methotrexate and Remicade which work to stop my immune system attacking my own body.
This means, thankfully, that i can usually walk quite well and go about my business.
However, because of those immunosuppression drugs, I daren't get an infection.
And just on Tuesday my consultant rheumatologist personally gave me a letter strongly advising me to stay in the house for at least the NEXT THREE MONTHS.
I am allowed into my back garden and just today i took delivery of two packets of Phostrogen (fertiliser).
I'm awaiting delivery of chicken manure pellets (yip), compost and a little top soil.
I'm intending to have the best dahlias five miles either side of the Faughan valley.
I've got my permit and i'll keep my eye on any fishing news.
Oh, and I'm learning Irish online.
Tá sé uafásach deacair ach tá se millteanach suimiúil!
So to get us back on track, if any of you are confined to the house, take out your permit anyway, do a spot of gardening and learn another language.
