The Siege of Parke's Castle in the Wild West of Ireland

Posted on June 1, 2015 at 11:00am 0 Comments

When visiting the West of Ireland, consider making time to explore County Leitrim.  This lesser-known gem is the homeland of my ancestors, and I first traveled there in 2008.  In…

'Christmas Flavors' Challenge: Braised Red Cabbage with Apples

Posted on December 4, 2014 at 5:30am 1 Comment

Whether or not it is true, I have long been of the opinion that God never intended cabbage for human consumption.  The rubbery leaves seem more suited to adorn the bottom of brogues than to be cooked up alongside more…

American University to Study Irish Tongue ... Literally

Ryan,

Welcome to the New Wild Geese Family. We are thrilled to have you join us!

Hello  Ryan, many thanks for your warm welcome, it was great to go back home, although it was a long time, and of course some things had changed, it was as if I had never been away, now that I know I still have family there I will go back regularly, in fact I am going in August and carry on with my research into the family tree, hope to hear from you again, take care, Sheila.

Hi Ryan

Thank you for your warm welcome. I am not a southerner but came down here 14 years ago to retire. Have known Gerry Regan from the days when I belonged to the Irish Brigade Association in New York.
Personal history and contribution to perpetuating the memory of the Irish soldiers can be found on my website -- www.irishbrigadestore.com.
I am crazy about Richmond and visit friends there often. You won't find much on me in Facebook. I'm in my 80th year and just not into social media much.

Thank you Ryan for the welcome to the Wild Geese - my ancestors "flew the coup" in post-Famine times & we have been in Australia for 5 generations... after my aunts traced the family tree, it felt good to return and live in Ireland for a year, about a decade ago... am feeling its about time to return again soon... Rachel.

Hello Ryan,

From Enniskillen... although I believe the Cleary's were originally from Galway, and then Donegal for centuries...

Hi Ryan, Lisa and I would like to ask you if we may put up your fantastically atmospheric photos of the Literary Walk on our Doire Press site? If so, could you send them to us at doirepress@gmail.com

Hope you and your wife enjoy the Stories. We're very proud of it and it's running out of our hands, we're glad to say. 

Best, 

John

Hi Ryan,

That's great. Would you mind sending us the photos in smaller units as our internet here is pathetic and if they all come in one block, we're screwed.

Thanks,

John

At 2:14pm on April 29, 2013, Ryan O'Rourke said…

Sure, John.  Incidentally, I think we're neighbours.  We live in Teach Mór. :-)

At 2:15pm on April 29, 2013, Ryan O'Rourke said…

Do you want them in collage form as I've done here on the site, or would you like them individually?

At 2:45pm on April 29, 2013, John Walsh said…

Okay Ryan,

as we are neighbours then just bring them over!!!

Individually would be best.

Do you have good internet and how?

What's your private email?

best,

John
