An Tir Kingdom ILoI dated 2015-11-30

Greetings unto Black Lion, Lions Blood and the College of Heralds!

I would first like to thank HE Caitrina for all her hard work and long hours she has put into Red Flame and heraldry in general. I only hope I can do half as good a job as she has done. I hope all of our commenters will continue to support me as I venture back into this role.

Best wishes for the holiday season and the upcoming year to all of you and your families!

Please find herein the submissions for Tir Righ.
