Thank you Gerry. And yes my family is recovering from Sandy, we were displaced for seven months but are back home now. Many others are not so fortunate and rebuilding is a very slow process but most are committed to returning home. I look forward to exploring this great site.

Delighted to hear this, Donna. My godparents, Joe and Helen Lynch, lived in Breezy in their retirement years. Uncle Joe worked for the Board of Ed most of his adult life. Did you happen to know them. I think Joe died about 15 years ago, and Helen may still be alive, but not likely in Breezy.

Hi Gary
Good to hear from you. Just saw your message and am on way way to bed as it is 23.20 here. I look forward to linking up later. I was a Capuchin but now I am working in the Dublin Diocese as a school chaplain in the Tallaght area of Dublin

Thanks far as my link to Ireland my Grandparents came to the states in 1930's from County Kerry and settled in the Bronx.  Dingle and Lixnaw is where they were from.  Made it back to visit there in mid 90's with my folks. Loved it and wish I could visit the meantime just enjoying sites like this one..thanks again!!

I think your items are fascinating.
I guess my question is this;
Would your eggs survive shipment to America?I followed your link from a site called the Wild Geese.
I want to show my wife your items and I am sure I will be in touch.
Once again, thank you.

:) Kelly

Hi Gerry- thank you for the warm welcome! I just moved to Richmond. I have been living in Sligo half the year and I am originally from the Bronx. My grandfather was Matty Regan from Magherafelt. Maybe we are related. :)

Thanks Ger for your lovely words on my music. It's lovely being part of this group. I would love to take part in the discussion tomorrow evening on JFK. But I don't know yet if I can. After the performance of my music for JFK there are a number of other events with a lot of officials from the US Embassy here and others. I don't know if I will be back in my hotel in time to connect.

I wish you every success. I will be honoured to be only a few miles from where the Kennedy forefathers lived and to perform my music from where they emigrated and in honour of JFK. This is my music about the famine ship The Dunbrody that transported to many to the US especially from Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny.

The picture was taken with me conducting the music beside the ship and in the place the performance will take place tomorrow.

Thank you Gerry, I appreciate the welcome. I would never have known about you guys if it wasn't for Patrick Deady from NZ. I was born and raised in Tralee Co Kerry and moved to the USA in the 1980's I love Ireland and the Irish people! I own and operate my own Company in Boston, called The Irish Connection Home Health Care Service! I have almost 50 Irish nurses in our company very caring people! It's great to be part of this group!!

Hi Gerry , no I am no pilot I got a present of a flying lesson and took the shot then. I work in food sales and for a company called Air View where we shoot video with a drone flying up to 60 meters high.

Hi, Gerry -
No, afraid the only Gibbonses I know are in Leitrim Village and another whose married name is Gibbons in Drumshanbo (I think).  I am a transplanted New Yorker (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan & The Bronx) who's 'only' been here in Leitrim for 17 years (still a blow-in).  
Kind regards!

Thanks, Ger!  For some reason, it seemed as though green was the way to go…:)
