Fáilte - Welcome

I began this blog on July 8th, 2008. Many thanks to all who have called in for a while. I hope the visits have been worthwhile. Thanks to all who have commented and given feedback and the many people I meet who simply say "I keep an eye on your blog". Some tell me they visit every day. Much has happened over those nine years and much has changed. The blog has helped me keep a track of some of that and the chance to share it with you. I am always anxious to improve and re-shape this piece of cyber space. I welcome your help and suggestions. Alongside that, I ask for your prayers and offer you mine. (Vincent June 2017)
