Hi, Richard.

Just wanted to take a minute to welcome you here to The Wild Geese.  Hope you've had a chance to look around a bit already.

Good to have another member from the Pacific Northwest.  When you have a few minutes to spare, post a blog here about your own "Irish story."  Folks here love to read about the backgrounds of other members.

Welcome aboard, Richard!

Richard, thanks for that. I'm so pleased you liked the book. I saw this video today on the BBC News about the Giants Causeway, which features in the book. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24032248 Something to visit if you get a chance to go back to Northern Ireland and see how it has changed. All the best, Caroline
