Thank you for the kind words about my photos & the welcome. I don't a chance to be on here much but I really do like it. Hope all is good with you and I look foward to talking to you in the future. Take Care & have a wounderful day.
Thanks, John...what a nice hello from you! I went to Ireland a year and a half ago (my grandfather left there as a little boy during the famine) and felt like I had come home. It's so in my soul. Like you.
Stay in touch, and all the best. I appreciate the welcome!
hi there ! joined live Ireland about 6 months ago.
I've been reading the posts a few times a week with little input, and now would like to pass along a site to you all which comes from Ireland and includes many
entries of music, videos of young and master musicians, sheet music, downloads & general chat,
" IT IS BY FAR THE BEST I HAVE FOUND." By the way, I am 72 and have been playing the Bodhran "KERRY STYLE" FOR 64 YEARS. I PLAY WITH 3 LOCAL IRISH TRAD BANDS AND IT IS THE CENTER OF MY DAILT LIFE.
ENJOY ===> http://comhaltas.ie/
HAD TO PUT THIS ON = = = FUNNY !
Here's a truly heartwarming story about a bond formed between a 5 year old little girl and some construction workers that makes you believe we CAN make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time.
A young family moved into a house next to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew showed up and started to build a house on the empty lot. The child naturally took an interest and spent much of each day observing the workers. Eventually, the construction crew adopted her as a kind of mascot. They chatted with her and let her sit with them on coffee and lunch breaks. They gave the little girl jobs to do to make her feel important. At the end of the first week they presented her with a pay envelope containing a few dollars. The little girl took her pay home to her mother. The mother suggested that she open her own savings account. The next day, when they got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed. She asked the little girl, "Will you be working on the house this week, too?" The little girl replied: "I will if those assholes from Home Depot ever deliver the sheet rock."
I see you are very busy, and I totally understand and feel the same about Ireland. It is so intoxicating. I feel a sense of renewal when I am there and more at peace than when I am at home.
It has been raining a bit more lately, but the weather is still rather grand. Not sure if my asthma could ever work in my favor in Florida when the muggy begins, but I did enjoy it when I was there several years ago. I would love ot hear your music and think it is incredible when one records. My dad was a musician and I love hearing him on old tapes.

I'll pass along the invitation to him from you. He's not got much Irish in his blood, but I still love him. I spent 13 of my 15 years with the Marines, so I am in the same boat as you are. No pun intended. :)
Be well new friend and thanks for the invite. I'll be emailing you.
