I live in Washington DC but my great-great-greats arrived in western Pennsylvania in 1837.

My parents were delighted that I made my entry into the world on March 17.

Hi Geraldine,
North Tipperary to me is so foreign but sounds oh so dreamy as I am an American that was never there in person. I am hoping to travel there with my grandson who just turned 18 sometime this year. We have been planning a excursion to Ireland for the last three years. He graduates high school this year. It will be my present to him before he is off to college. We do not want to take the usual tourist route, we are more interested in the back roads so we can explore and take our time to really see the country.

I know I will be like a kid in a candy store to see the country that my father is from. My sister who is 2 years younger that I have always dreamed of going but for one reason or another we could never travel at the same time or had the funds at the same time to go. Whatever the reason it has kept us away. I could either be generous and take her now that we are older with less obligations to raise our own children or I can take my grandson. I have chosen to share it with the young at heart. Who knows perhaps he will go there and find his future while I am seeing my past.

Please tell me about your IRELAND.....so I will hear it first hand from a native of Ireland. MY whole reason for joining this team was to find real people that I can get to know and perhaps someday meet as I get on with my goals of a better healthy life.

Do you love Ireland? What do you think of the weather there and when is it the best weather and why? What are some of the good points versus the bad ones. Anything at this point would be sharing for all I can know for sure is out of text books and of course written for the tipsy traveler. I am not going to be taking a tour bus...I want to rent a car and take all the back roads to designated sports that I have set up prior to flying in.

Thank you Nosfit,

I would like to hope it bring encouragement, but only time will tell. Who knows we as in you and I might be distant cousins since my fathers family was from cork also.

I am gun hoe also to get going on my weight loss I need to drop at least 35 lbs by St. Patrick's Day. I have set my goal for that date because it is just prior to our horse showing season which starts April 1st. We show horses during the spring through to the fall of each year. I no longer show of course but I travel with the grandkids since all their horses are here on my land. I would feel so much better being a little lighter and healthier.

Nice to meet you!

Best of luck to the new leader and I hope that your action in taking on the job will encourage a few hopeless cases like myself.

I live in San Francisco. I'm not sure I have any Irish genes (such a mix over the generations in my family), but the team let me in anyway. I've always been enamored of things Irish. Yeats and Joyce were among my very favorites in grad school.



Whatever befalls the earth befalls the son of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
