My name is Jim Travers, a
mature final year student in NUI Maynooth studying for a BA degree in Community Studies.
I am writing a thesis on
roadside memorials and would like to interview people who would be
willing to talk about their experiences and their reasons for erecting memorials in places outside the norms of traditional burial and memorial rites.

I would be very grateful if it would be possible for you to place this small notice on your website seeking people who would be willing to speak to me about a bereavement and their reasons for erecting roadside memorials to the memory of a relative or friend.

I really would be very grateful if you could help me in my research work.
