Mick Coleman's 80th Birthday

Our warmest congratulations to Mick on his 80th Birthday and for the very family and spirited way in which he celebrated it. It was a great event in a beautiful location at the Sydney Rowing Club in Abbotsford.  His family and the other clan members and friends relished the opportunity to be part of such a worthy celebration and from go to whoe the atmosphere was electric.  It was certainly celebrated in great spirit and everyone had a really fun time.

Patricia and I join family in Ireland for Christmas  2014

 

I arrived in Sydney on 3 August 1958.  Since retiring in 1997, Patricia and I have visited Ireland regularly but my first visit was in the summer of 1974 with my two sons, Martin Pat and Michael.  My next visit was in 1986 with Patricia.  All our visits until now were always during the European summer.  I have always promised myself that I would visit Ireland for Christmas but never expected it to be as late as 2014, some fifty seven years since my last Christmas in Ireland.

On our way to County Mayo, we spent four delightful days in Paris from 3 to 7 Dec soaking up the extraordinary atmosphere that was so noticeably part of the spectactular and committed Parisian Christmas Celebrations. The same could be said for the way London celebrates Christmas.  We spent five days with my sister Maureen's family in London and got to sample first hand the wonderful London Christmas scene before arriving in Dublin on 12 Dec for three days to equally spectacular celebrations.  It was Galway and Mayo from the 15 to 31 Dec.  Galway with its own unique wonderland and Christmas atmosphere and the lovely towns and villages of Mayo with lights in all windows symbolising and evoking throughout the long winter evenings the warmth and welcome and joy of Christmas.

Our sincere thanks to family in Cordroon, to John Joe and Bridie and to John and Michelle and their lovely family John, Abby and Jack with whom we spent Christmas Day accompanied by family from London, Pat and Gerrard, and family from Westport, Martin, Kate, and Carrie, as well as Hayley, Shane and their fine son, Ryan, from Castlebar.

After all those years, ours was a very special Christmas that will not be forgotten and made all the more so by our being able to visit family in Cahermaculick, Brodella, Glencorrib, Loughrea, Toomevara and Nenagh.  A special thanks to family in London, to Maureen and Brian, as well as to Fiona, Nigel and Lorcan for their wonderful hospitality and very warn welcome.
