Hi, Jim.

Just wanted to take a moment to welcome you here to The Wild Geese.  If you haven't taken a few minutes to look around already, you'll find great articles, members' discussions, resources, etc.  Hope to have the opportunity to interact with you here in days / weeks ahead as we build this community of lovers of all-things-Irish.

When you have a minute, post a little blog about your own "Irish story." Everyone here loves to read about fellow members' backgrounds.

Welcome aboard, Jim!
