On their recent visit from Chicago to this part of the world, Mike and Trudy had time to have an enjoyable lunch with Joe and Rebecca in The Shakespeare Hotel, Stratford - on - Avon, in the UK. Shortly afterwards our American clan members travelled over to see us here in the Emerald Isle. Unfortunately I missed meeting up with our visitors when they travelled to Westport in the west of Ireland. Westport has been voted Irelands most pleasant town to live in, you can see why.

The Kelly’s have long and traditional links with the town of Westport, having married into the Browne and Bourke families in the 1600’s. Through the Bourke marriage they would be related to the Sea Queen of Connacht - Grace Ó Malley.

Croagh Patrick - majestic and mysterious. Mike, hope to meet up the next time you are back. Joe (Ed) Sept ’12.
