My husband and I were very blessed to go to the Wild West of Ireland 10 years ago after we were first married. To borrow some lyrics from an Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny song best describes our yearning to return to the Wild West.

My time in the Wild West of Ireland
"I am ever in your debt,
For the sights and sounds of yesterday
Are shining memories yet."

We visited the land of our fathers' faith in Ireland's Wild West,
Croagh Patrick, Clonmacnoise, Ballintubber, and Kylemore Abbey
were the sites we loved the best.
But there are so many more spiritual places in the Wild West that we really want to see.
More holy wells, more mass rocks, and churches calling me.

We climbed the highest mountains and cliffs in the Wild West of Ireland,
Slieve League, Cliffs of Moher, Croagh Patrick were a few but we want to return again.
From the mountains, to the Burren to the rocky western shore,
We love the Wild West of Ireland, but we want to see some more!
"Many years have passed and gone since the times we had there,
But my heart's tonight in Ireland in the Sweet County Clare."

The friendly people, the lively music, and the views along the Western coast,
are just a few of the many things we proudly boast.
"My heart tonight is far away across the rolling sea,"
In the Wild West of Ireland,
"It's there I want to be!"

Ah, "My Heart's Tonight in Ireland." One of my favorites seventies Irish folk songs. I love Andy Irvine and Planxty. Donal Lunny and my mother were cousins. Great memory. ❤️
