We are having a fun , week in Fentons with lots of happy people. On Wednesday we had Pat O Connor and his Rick Steves group for dinner. I arranged for Felicity Hayes McCoy, Author of ‘ A House on an Irish Hillside’ to pop in and tell us a little about her life in London and Dingle. Felicity’s Husband Wilf Judd , an English Opera Director took some photographs of the evening. Hopefully, they will be on the The House on an Irish Hillsides Facebook shortly.
Last night we were honoured to have an 93 year old and his wonderful family dine with us . His name is Mick Carney and he is celebrating the Gathering on the Great Blasket today.He is the oldest living native Blasket Islander and he is launching his book this evening, ‘From the Great Blasket to America , a story of his life from when he left the Island in 1937. We wish him well and hope the Carney Clan have a wonderful gathering.
It is a beautiful sunny day in Dingle today so it is time for me to sign off and do some gardening.
