Just wanted to take a minute to welcome you here to The Wild Geese. Loads of great information, discussion, resources, etc. here relating to all-things-Irish. Hope to have the chance to interact with you here over the coming weeks and months. Please tell us your own "Irish story" in a blog post at your earliest convenience. As an (O) Sullivan, you almost certainly have some great family history.

I'LL CHECK OUT The Linda Letters by Gabriel O'Sullivan THIS EVENING. TAKE CARE AND GOD BLESS
