Be It Ever So Humble, There's No Place Like Home

I took this photograph in Galway around 1982. The two, twin, cozy cottages always caught my eye, when I was headed out after university to thumb a lift home. I always imagined the dressers shielded by blue delph plates and hung with colourful china…See More

Hi, Brian.

Just wanted to take a minute here to welcome you to The Wild Geese.  I see you're in Galway, as am I.  Great to have you among us.

Hope you've had a look around the site already -- some great articles, discussions, resources, etc.  Quite a little blossoming community here, and only bigger things to come!

So are you a lifelong Galwegian?  What are your interests as far as "Irishness," as Michael D. calls it?

Welcome aboard, Brian!

~ Ryan
