"I just bought Taroquin Blake's Book....Abandoned Mansions of Irleand...I'd like to visit everyone of them in person... but I  know that is unlikely so the book is really great to look at. I wonder where this one is located."

moving to Ireland

Posted on December 27, 2007 at 21:01 2 Comments

I am always interested in hearing from people who are interested in moving to Ireland...i like our cottage in County Tipperary because it reminds me of the place where i grew up i Western Pennsylvania..... a place that no longer exist....a few years ago i revisited my beloved valley in the rural area just north of the city of Pittsburgh. BUT it is "rural' no more...nothing remained to remind me of the place of my youth that i loved so dearly....

what a joy it was to find in Ireland a…

Hi Bob,
That's awesome that you guys are leaving soon! I bet you are super excited, and what a great ticket price!! I would love to be able to spend a year there, or even live there. Especially if I could live on the West coast. Of course I would have to have some way to earn a living...but I'm sure I could figure something out. Will you guys be working or just taking it easy?
I did have a good trip. It was really fast though and I wish I could have spent more time in each of the places we went. I think I have a couple pictures on my page from my trip. I hope to go back again soon. You guys will have to keep in touch. I'm sure you will have a blast. Will this be the longest stretch you have stayed there?

Happy St. Patrick's Day Bob!!

P.S. got a ticket (well three tickets, I ended up splitting it into three seporate flights...which is stressing me out because I'm worried about missing a flight if one is delayed!! Ah well.
Here's hoping next time I travel there it won't cost as much!!

After hearing the music on your site I will have to check them out. I did not start playing fiddle until I was over 40. My youngest daughter liked what I was doing so she started when she was 7 and is now 11. She sometimes goes and plays in the pub with me from time to time. If you love fiddle music, its never too late to start playing.

IF YOU ENJOY THE MUSIC ON MY SITE PLEASE CHECK OUT celticspringband...a canadian family with very talented, very young, children....they came in second on the US TV show..."America Has Talent".... we saw them at an "Irish Fair" the other day....they are all wondeful step dancers as well....the greenest thing at that fair was me "reen with envy" to see such fabulous talent.
