"OMG, this whole article is silly.  I just came back from Ireland in late September and we had THE best times along the Wild Atlantic Way.  In face, I preferred our time in the Western part of the Country over busy, crowded Dublin with all…"

"I really, REALLY wish that I could learn to speak the language of my grandparents.  I've studied other languages, but Irish is so hard.  I wonder if it's because I'm a lot older now than I was when I first studied a foreign…"

Hi, Kathleen.

Just wanted to extend a bit of a belated welcome here to The Wild Geese.  Hope you've had the opportunity to look around the site to see what's on offer.  Of course, there is even more to come.  It's a great little burgeoning community with loads of interesting folks enjoying the discussion of all-things-Irish.

Hope to hear more about your own Irish connections here in the days ahead.

Thanks, Kathleen ... and welcome aboard!

~ Ryan
