Hi Bit,
Thanks for your comment re my Blog.  Heretofore I only glanced at the piece but following your comment I read the whole of it again and had a listen to Chris Rea's song.  Guess what?  I enjoyed both and thanks again.

Hi Bit,

Mike Quane is a friend of mine, and suggested that I sign up to be a New Wild Goose! Mike was one of the first people to be aware of my new book, Ireland in Word and Image. It's a 300 page coffee table book of my photos from the month that I spent shooting in Ireland this year and last. The photos are paired with Irish literature excerpts appropriate for each image.

I'm a photographer for Getty Images and was asked to do this book by the publishers of Welcome Books, the art book house of Random House. I've got some other professional interests in journalism and medicine. I'm delighted to be here among some people to remind me of the wonderful friends that I made in Ireland.

Bit, do you know Aurora and/or Newmarket? I was raised in Aurora and married and lived in Newmarket for 24 years : ) And I know Richmond Hill well.

Failte, Bit, glad to be your WG friend. I think you live in Tucson, AZ. I love that beautiful state. My late husband and I owned a home there at one time, we never lived in it we were thinking of retiring there. Once the grandchildren started arriving I wanted no part of it. Too far from NJ and NY. I have great memories of that state and I think we travelled from the north to the south many times. Perhaps one day I will go back again for a visit. Love your input to the WG stories and comments.

Thank you for befriending me. I'm working on my Keough/Keogh story and will share it as I find it.

Hi, nice to 'meet' you...Bit...I'm too curious about your name NOT to ask!  Nickname, short for something else?  Thanks!  Cindy

Thanks for the welcome.  Much of my writing currently is in the sciences.  I am particularly interested in the genetics of early Irish races. Hope to bring more information out to the modern Irish on this.

Hello Bit. Have been researching my Irish family with a very English name,  I have a grandfather George (1761) when he is witness at 2 weddings in Dunsany, Co.Meath but lost him after that. George and William run through the family until the present time. Have loads of info. about them all but this George is so elusive. Maybe he does not want to be found! Sorry, the English name is Webb.
