Dear Mr. Devine, may I call you Bit? Thank you for the lovely welcome, what a delightful surprise. Although I am presently living in Pinetop I am a Brooklyn, New York lady. Miss the east especially the wonderful PEOPLE, THEY ARE THE GREATEST. Goal to get back perhaps Rhode Island. I wonder can I send a photo to the Astoria, Queens address and can someone just add it on your site?. Hate to admit not sure how to e-mail from my camera. Your website is so interesting I haven't had a chance to look at it all but loved the Connemara Castles and each article interesting and of course being Irish CHARMING. CAN THE IRISH BE ANYTHING ELSE. BEST WISHES. CHERYL .
Hi Bit! Good to see you here - I was asked to join WG by Gerry and am just now setting up my account. I did make it to the Aran Islands last summer for a 'research' trip :-) and hope to get out there again this Spring to film, do you recognise this place in the photo?
