The team here at The Wild Geese would like to convey our support for the communities in Oklahoma which have been decimated by the recent storms.  We extend our sympathy to all who have lost loved ones.

If you would like to donate to help the victims of this tragedy, you can find a well-compiled list of charities ready to accept your donation here.

By the very nature of the vast Irish diaspora, we know there are large numbers of "Wild Geese" in and around the affected areas.  Here is a good read about the history of the Irish in Oklahoma from Examiner.com.  WG

Perhaps the Wild Geese effort could unite with the efforts of the Choctaw Nation, who came to the aid of the Irish during the Great Hunger.   https://www.facebook.com/choctawnationofoklahoma?hc_location=timeline

That's a pretty cool idea, John.  We'll definitely look into it.  Go raibh míle, míle maith agat!
