How good to hear from you. What a small world! I met your father, Paddy, back in the 1970s when I first visited Ireland. Stayed at Kelly's bar and he came to meet us. He took us to the football and to his place for lunch.
I went back to Ireland a few years ago and we were given a huge welcome by the town - had far too much Guiness and a hangover from hell the next day. It must have been your sisters who extended us such wonderful hospitality. I can honestly say that trip was the best and will stay with me forever.
