One thing Fred and I both noticed about the people we met in Ireland. They are very gracious. And they have an amazing sense of humour. They weave these lovely character traits into everything they do and say.
From the musicians, to the residents of Lahinch, to the servers in the pubs and restaurants, to the owner of the house we stayed in, to the priests who said Mass and carried the Eucharist through Lahinch on Corpus Christi. All are lovely genuine people. No wonder I love the fact that my roots are from County Clare.
