*** Soon I will go to Galway to lay flowers on his grave. ***

You have to watch a TV Program named: "Single-Handed". I recently found it on Hulu Plus (Hulu Plus has a 14 day FREE TRIAL deal). It's a great show, especially if you're Irish . It's only Six Episodes but they're each an 1hr & 42min long.

Anyway, enjoy your trip to Galway and take a lot of pictures of the Countryside. But bring a warm jacket, sweater, raincoat and boots. Galway's weather is a bit on the wet & 'cool' side and it gets a tad muddy.

And because of watching that TV show I started doing a little search of my Irish family history and found 'My Clan', family crest, and its history. Turns out I come from/related to 'Irish Royalty' -- the last two Irish Kings in the 12th Century. After that Ireland's Kings were 'foreign invaders' and then Brits.

Joyce Country. That’s where my great grandfather came from. Dress with layers to put on and to take off. Western Ireland is beautiful.
