    Dear Corey,
    THANK YOU so much for mentioning my “Finding the Real Ireland” Blog episode on your Blog today. I also appreciate your encouraging people to make comments. The more, the merrier!
    I have been following your Blog, so I know you have guests, and that Liam has arrived. So sorry to hear that Liam is not well – if it’s bronchitis, it’s not fun in Ireland. John and I got bronchitis in Ireland in Nov. 2004, and, unfortunately, had to fly home. Please tell Liam he is in our prayers for a speedy recovery.
    We agree with you on Achill. The big thing we noticed last summer was the huge increase in houses/second homes/holiday homes all over the hills and valleys. A lot of Dubliners, Northerners and British have built weekend homes, and the pristine green countryside is speckled with white boxes now, but that’s progress. It’s great that they can afford to build or rent places on Achill, and that’s not even counting the motor homes.
    Your Blog is so much fun to follow. We feel like we are with you. And your Expense Report is a great idea. I think reporting expenses is particularly relevant in the year we are in. We look forward to hearing about your bus/train trips coming up. See you got a Heritage Card, that’s a good investment – now you’ll have to go to a lot of heritage sites to get your money’s worth. But it’s good for a year.
    Take good care of Liam and have fun with Liam’s Mom and Gaeney. Hope the weather turns back to good.
    All the best from NY,
    PAT
