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!

My grandfather was from a large family in Castlebar, Co. Mayo.  He went to Chicago around 1908 and then moved to Brooklyn.  Any connection?

I always thought my great-grandmother, Catherine Collins was from Cork but last St. Pat's day a cousin in Ireland corrected me and said she was from Galway. My uncle swore she had to be a cousin of Michael Collins. Guess not. Oh well.
