After all that war and sadness I’m going to try to keep today’s post a bit more up beat.

This is the NKRO gang plus a few friends who have just completed their genealogy workshops with Lorna and David from UL. The lecturers are the 2 seated in front. If you want a bit of help with that North Kerry branch of the family tree, now would be a good time to ask while they are all fired with enthusiasm.

Everyone in NKRO extends a huge Céad míle fáilte to our first confirmed guests for our Week of Welcomes. Ed. and Margaret O’Connor of Massachusetts confirmed their booking as soon as our Paypal button went live on the website. Thank you,  Ed. See you in August.


Look who I met on my travels!

Carmel and Róisín Gornell were at mass on Monday morning. Róisín is on a visit home from her new home in Canada.


Some posters I spotted in town

The first event sounds like a hoot. You are more likely to find me at the second one though.


Doesn’t this raise your spirits…       a peacock in flight


Don’t forget Saturday night in Herbert’s Bar Kilflynn for the best in trad.
