I have been working on my Irish ancestry for awhile. They came to Canada in 1830. I always thought he was from Derry; now I am thinking maybe he was one of the flax growers in Donegal. She was from Cork, a bit of a fiesty lady; after he died she signed her maiden name to the town record - that was long before such things were in vogue.
I sometimes get out to the ceilis. I go out to the club once in awhile to watch hurling and the GAA. ( the Rebels will get revenge next year) The Dora Keogh is the best Irish pub this side of "the water" - and I try to "keep my attendance up." No, no, no; the falling-down drunk days of my youth are long past. Now I actually enjoy my pint.
My favourite music is Celtic, naturelly, but I also like jazz, and not to be forgotten is classic. I like ANY music, as long as it's music. Head banger gives me the urg to fight

Hi keith, I took some of the pictures. Some of them are really old. There is one of great grandfather standing on teh wharf he been dead long b4 I was born but it still nice to have them. I thought I'd share some of teh pictures with everyone as they tell what life use to be like in Newfoundland & how much it has changed even in the last generation. As for workers comp do go there they can be a real pain I was on there for a year with a broken ankle & they do some really strange things. LOL I hope all is well with you & you get everything fixed away. Hopefully I'll catch ya later in the chat room, C
Charlene, Hi, hope you know my comment was in good fun. Never been to Newfie. Actually I can hardly say I was to Nova Scotia, just to Amherst, a little town just over the NB boarder.
Lotsa people on tonight. Good to see people coming back to chat. Keith
