Memories of Ireland

A collection of memories from my visit to Ireland in 1985:


Ghosts of Mayo — My grandparent's journey home

Cliffs of Moher — Climbing cliffs in Ireland

The Kerryman — A man that I met briefly while hitchhiking in Ireland

Mickey Finn — An evening with one of Ireland's greatest fiddlers


Since my maternal grandparents had come to America from Ireland in the 1920's I had grown up hearing stories about that place my life.

Just after my grandparent's death I visited Ireland. As the first long journey I took entirely on my own it provided a whole other level of experience.
