I'm really a simple man of simple pleasures. I love my God, my church, my wife and son, my family, my roots, my friends, my food on the table, drink in me hand and pipe in me mouth. I love to dream. I love to talk about theology, ethics and philosophy, history and manhood with those that I admire and respect like my Dad. I love learning new things. I love my life but one thing that really makes my heart long is Ireland. Hopefully one day I will be able to visit the Emerald Isle, the Green Erin and fulfill my heart's desire to truly go North to see the land of my people - the land of my ancestors.
I just recently found out that my Donahue irish ancestor, Florence Donahue, came from Cahirciveen, Co. Kerry, Ireland and his wife, Hanora O'Donoghue, came from Catholic parish of Glenflesk, civil parish of Killaha, Co. Kerry, Ireland. I'm researching the genealogy of my family - especially the Donahue's, McNamara's and McQueen's in Oswego, NY area. My ancestors were of one of the predominant irish septs in Ireland. I am of the R1b1b2 Y-DNA blood type and I am part of the O'Donoghue Society, currently working on a coat of arms project with them. Ask me about it sometime, it's a great honor!
I am a descendant of a 7th son of a 7th son, Florence Donahue, who, according to family lore, had the ability to heal a type of tuberculosis of the throat called "Kings Evil". Florence was born in 1834 in Cahirciveen, Co. Kerry, Ireland and died 8 Nov 1894 in Oswego, NY. Florence's son John Charles Donahue (born 9 Oct 1864 in Oswego, NY and died 1935 in Oswego, NY), was a Railroad Conductor for the N.Y., N.H. and H. R.R. in Providence, RI. He had a son, Francis McNamara Donahue (born 9 Aug 1894 in Oswego, NY and died 13 Aug 1954 in Oneida, NY), who was an Art Teacher for Oneida High School. Francis Donahue is my Dad's grandfather and my great grandfather.
I am also now officially the second true knight and warrior monk in the first actual knighthood order in the history of this country.

Glad to know all is well with you! And if you think that message not suits you well, better for you!
Don’t use to do that as I did to you, only with people that I know in person, and all the times something was going on to happen, and was necessary to warn them, as they were closed to their intuition in that precise time.
You suppose from the beginning that it was not a message from the one you believe in… Can you be so sure of that? Well, I know me very well from the deep of my Soul to know what’s surround me. Can you say to you the same?
I did just what I thought was the right to do, and I thought a lot before I did it, because I really understand that not all are able to understand that kind of things, as I have been until some years ago one of those ones…
Did not want to scare you, so if I did it, please forgive me. I just and only try to delivery the message to you so clearly as I get it, nothing more.
Pay good attention to your heart and mind, because when is need that someone that is a stranger for you gives you a message, is because you are not so close of the one you speak HIS name, as you think you could be. So, please start to listening your intuition ( the one that comes from your heart) and not your fears ( this are the ones that comes from your mind). If JESUS is for real your Lord and Savior( and I am not question this to be or not be true), then, you know for certainly that unconditional love is what should guide us… so, eye to eye is not the appropriated term but heart to heart!
That our beloved brother JESUS take good care of you and all the ones you love!
