    I'm Irish enough to count, and I can tell the difference between a jig and a reel.

    With all the Irish descendants out there, not sure how this one went dead so fast!

    I'm just about half Irish. On my fathers side my Grammy was a Clark (her mother and father immigrated from Ireland) and my Grampy was 1/2 Irish (though I don't know the family name).

    Then I married a handsome O'Neil who is all Irish. His mother was a Kennedy (not the famous American ones). All of his grandparents immigrated here directly from Ireland.

    The real shame of it all is I have never set foot on Irish soil to date. It is a dream of mine to make it over there at least once! DH would really like to go back, he went as a kid.

    DH and I have even thought it would be nice to go live over there someday. As I understand it, he is eligible to become a citizen since he is only one generation removed from Ireland. Maybe someday. Especially if America keeps heading down hill!

    So shamefully I am very unfamiliar with the geography of Ireland, what area are you from young budgie?

    Well I will come see you and we can talk chickens, and go for a ramble and drink a pint and I will meet all your friends?

    My grandmother was from county Cork, a Relahan, and I look like all of them. have the same sense of humor too,,,,, i had an atricle about the Relahans , but lost it,,,, its not a cooman batch of folks.
    My other grandmother was a McBride of the North Isles, 1/2 ireland 1/2 scotland... if you have boat,,,, then we travel, that clan worked all the way out to Iona.

    I live in oregon now, with dogs and chickens, we love vistors at our small, modest house, ( everyone in europe seems to think all americans are the tv show dallas),
    so come our way and give us a holler, never enough friends in the world....
