Jane, fáilte to The (New) Wild Geese. We'd like to help you engage with the epic heritage of the Irish, so let us know what specific interests you have. Tell us about Irish culture in and near Sturbridge Village. Ger
A Gearoid .. Dia duit! Go raibh maith agat. I appreciate your kind welcome. As you can see, one of my interests is studying the Irish language. I also paint seascapes of the west coast of Ireland in oils. I paint from photographs I've taken over the years visiting the west of Ireland. I have relatives in Roscommon and travel over every other year to visit them.
I do love The Wild Geese site and congratulate you on its fine content. I know I will enjoy my association with it!
Go raibh mile maith agat for your kind words, Jane. The pater of my sweetheart, Mary Grady, grew up in Ballaghdereen in Roscommon and I visited a Trinity College classmate's home in Keadue back in 1974. Whereabouts in Roscommon do you have roots? And might we see some of your work here on WG? We have a Visual Arts Producer, BTW, Maryann Tracy. I hope you both connect.
The thatch had a quality that slates lack - more eye catching. I may be wrong but over here in Northern Ireland the thatchers used to call the "sally rods" (from the sally tree) scallops. I am open to correction.
