Being a military family, we have been given many wonderful opportunities to travel. A few years ago were were stationed overseas and were able to travel to Ireland for a week long visit. We started in Dublin and then headed to Northern Ireland, which is where my lines emigrated from. It was wonderful to walk in the footsteps of James McGuire and realize what a difficult decision it must have been to leave such a beautiful place.
So today I will eat my cottage pie and soda bread and wash it down with a Harp. All the while drinking to James McGuire. He came here to America, but I want to go back.
