    Ciara, in 2006 at Crosshaven during Cork Week Sailing regatta you came on board our yacht Moondance and sang Moondance to us all. We were captivated and knew we would hear of your success in the future. I was reminicing last night about Cork 2006 and we googled your name. I am so pleased you are doing well on the international stage. If you have a recording of Moondance i would love to get a copy .... Where could i get one.
