Beautiful Britain - Ireland

It's St.Patrick's Day so what better way to celebrate than to send you here

Ireland, known as "The Emerald Isle", is a wee country with a huge history, majestic scenery, and the ability to rouse romance and passion in the souls of many.
My ggg-grandfather George McGechie was born in Ireland abt. 1795. I have no idea when he jumped over the channel to Glasgow but he married a bonnie Scots lassie and she gave birth to my gg-grandfather, David, in 1819.

Here's an Irish Blessing for you all.
"Wishing you ... warmth in your home, love in your heart, peace in your soul ... and joy in your life."

Now that we are in the UK I am determined to visit Ireland, I've never been, despite it being so close to mainland Britain!

You know I won't argue with you on that one. It is a lovely isle!
