DJ, welcome to The (New) Wild Geese. And thanks for jumping right in on our discussion of " 'Tans' in the Family Attic."

Delighted to have you part of our growing worldwide Irish family!

Hi, DJ. 

Wanted to take a minute to welcome you here to The Wild Geese.  It's a great little community which is blossoming into something big, little by little.  Your book about the Black & Tans sounds fascinating.  Great to have you here to add your perspectives.

Welcome aboard, DJ!

Thank you Gerry & Ryan.  Delighted to be here.  Been packing all day as am embarking on a mini book tour on Weds am, to Irish World Heritage Centre in Manchester UK and then on Friday to  Dunlavin Arts Festival, Co Wicklow.  Am off for some shuteye now, but will pop in again in the morning (UK time).  Night all.  :-D

Thank you Ger.  What an honour.  I'm enjoying the site (in Co Waterford, Ireland, at the moment).

Thanks for accepting Lucy.  I see we both have a Mayo connection.  My mother was a Lyons from Aughamore, near Ballyhaunis in East Mayo.  I'm heading over there (for first time since I was 3 years old) in 4 weeks for a bit of a 'gathering' with all my cousins.  I'm hoping also to get a feel for the place as I thought I might write a book based on the maternal ancestry.  My father's side are Northern Irish (Belfast & Carrickfergus) and  I've published 2 novels based on the paternal ancestors and am currently writing another.  I'm Manchester born but much travelled and living these days in Buckinghamshire, where I set up Chalfont Writers' Circle.  I also research and write little local history books for my local history group.  Best wishes.  Denise [DJ Kelly]

Thanks Denise. And congratulations on the success of Running with Crows, both in book form and as a play. It seems to be going from strength to strength.

Denise, just read your comment from last year, i.e., "'Elizabeth Sanders was the niece of the British Admiralty'? How lucrative it must have been to have a thousand uncles.
Seriously though, a most interesting article, Bill, and well done on the research. I'm currently researching 'British agent 72', aka Benjamin Franklin and his fellow American double agent Edward Bancroft, both members of the debauched Buckinghamshire-based 'Hellfire Club'. It's an interesting period in Anglo-American history. Incidentally, James Jesus Angleton (of later CIA fame) was educated here in Buckinghamshire. This county has long been a spies' paradise."

Fascinating focus! We certainly miss your contributions to our community. What are you working on these days?
