Oh Caz, its the most beautiful place! I've only been once (to the west coast - Kerry) and had the most marvellous holiday. It is so lovely, so peaceful, and the pace is so different from here. i would love to go to this, but it will be in the middle of my youngest's A level exams so not sure if it will be possible.

I'd love to go too but DS is getting married some time in June 2012 - no date set yet - but also I fancy the 10 day tour with Inkeke Berlyn but the cost is $1,834. I wonder if it's less from the UK??

Hi Ros, I wonder if this quilt festival will be an annual thing. My grandfather was born in Ireland and I hope someday to go there and do a bit of research for the family. Sounds like a lovely place to visit, as I've never been before.

Hi Tessa,
My hubby's grandmother was Irish and my daughter has inherited the blond ringlet hair! When they were younger both my children learnt Irish dancing, so on St Patrick's night there was always a request for them to dress up and do their best jig at the parish evening.
Which part of Ireland was your grandfather from?

Morning Ros,
 
My grandfather was born in Armaugh (? - spelling), and was in the Irish Guards in WWI, my dad was born in Hendon, London and also was in the Irish Guards in WWI and WWII.
 
Oh how I would love to learn how to dance an Irish jig....somehow not sure if the knee could cope now at my age....but I do enjoy watching it.
 
Tessa
