We arrived in our new homes last evening
after a circuitous drive from
Killarney to Roundstone.
Chris Trotter from the village of Carrigaline joined us... Yahhhh

This is the landscape we awoke to this morning.
No Lambscape as in Killarney
A windswept seascape to encourage us into the day
as if we needed encouragement!!
Andrew is foraging for food
Alice figured out the heating dilemma – much to the boy’s chagrin
Bob is wrapped in blankets planning an escape to Shannon
The dancing girls are planning their space in O’Dowds wooden floor for tonight session.

Welcome to the fiddler Chris Trotter who made the trip with us we are looking forward to playing tunes with him in Roundstone Thanks too to Connor Byrne who joined us in the Claddagh yesterday Thanks to Deirdre Holmes for being our Claddagh photographer Safe journey to Anthony and Nathalie on their way to Dublin. Great to see you in galway Fabulous to meet Danny Riordan, Kathy Dillon (and her beautiful daughter) and Gerard O'Mahony from Knocknacarra. Thanks especially to Frank Fahy (FG), Deputy Lord Mayor of Galway for his facilitation of events at the Claddagh. We couldn't have made this happen without his great attention to detail and his local knowledge of people and places. Seattle Galway sister city connection is the stronger for it. I love you all ....
