Good to see another Irish person on the forum! We are few and far between, except for you and another girl who just joined. Anyway, welcome!
Welcome to the community Jayde. Here are groups that might be of interest to you: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/ukdreadlocks http://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/irish-dreadies

Welcome Joshua don't worry, no-one will 'throw you under a bus' or judge you for how you started your dread journey. Unfortunately, MANY of our members here, myself included, started out the wrong way because of the terrible information on the Internet. There is hope, don't worry! I hope you stick around and update you with your progress.
