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.

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