What can I say Murrisk, my atm, pin # is the battle of Hastings and my debit card the battle of clontarf, like the count of kids on main St. and the census on the pontoon rd, what dates of interest ,would the rest of our boarders put up?,for me,the day I arrived in the U.S of A. April 10th 1971. I carry in my wallet,a stamped mark from the U.S. immigration services dated May 17th. 1934 showing the arrival of my Mother in Ireland. As the story of William Wallace, and Rob Roy,was told for us on the silver screen, I would hope,also,some day,Mr Jordan would tell the story of our own O Neill,and O Donnell,Grainuille of Mayo , Queen Maeve of Connaught, . The dearth of Irish "colourfull characters" Sarsfield, Strongbow ,Pearce , Emmett, Parnell!,Collins ! Mulvey,Rafferty,Mac Murrough, Humbert, Daniel o Connell!, Barry O Connell,De Valera, "Enda Kenny""Henry Kenny" " Padraig O Flynn",Johnny Mee", "Powie Roach,Batha Roach", our artists, muscians, teachers, and priests have enveloped the globe,and the world is richer for it. We were once known as "The Isle. Of Saints and Scholars" and now according to Andy Rooney "The Isle for returning wanders". Come back Paddy Reilly to Ballyjamesduff, Come back Paddy Reilly to me. Latin is lacking,as the boys are hacking. Did you know that a Dublin jackeen won the prestigious Tchaikovsky piano competition in Moscow, and our own,Christy Lawless has found over 5,000 "Fulach Fua" or boiling points ancient irish dwelling places in County Mayo alone whereas lofty University professors of archaeology claimed in the region of 200 for the entire country!!true or false. Mr. Lawless has relentlessly, walked the lands, of the barony's of Mayo in his pursuit! . A piece of cheese aged at approximately five thousand years old found in a bog in county Tipperary by two farmers was found to be still to be still edible!!. and a Dublin news paper found fit to report that during a storm, a football match in Sligo was interupted because the wind had blown the goal posts down. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.
