For Fran

As many of you know, our friend Fran is returning home to Ireland tomorrow.  I know he will miss his friends in England and that he will be missed by them.

We all wish him and his other half the best as they return to the land of Fran's birth.

This is a song the Hubby and I recorded in 2004 and it is dedicated to all Irish who are away from home.



Go n-éirí do thuras leat!

    3. Dahlink, I'm dancing and crying with happiness for you! There is nobody who deserves this happy ending more than you and your hubs! I'm so overjoyed that the hell is finally over! And the whole thing you've started at court could change history too!

      I've found a new publisher today, so it was a good day for me as well! We must meet tonight at the Shenanigans Pub to celebrate!

  16. I wasn't aware he was going which showed how out of the loop I was. It turns out for some reason he wasn't carried over when I switched feed readers. I saw the post in your sidebar and am going to read it, and refollow him. I wish him safe travels, and I'm sure if he gets the chance he'll be back to visit his friends here when he can.
