10 Questions About…

Patrick’s Birthday by Ann Treacy

Patrick’s birthday landed on one of the nicest days in January. We went to Dun Laoghaire – only wearing sweaters. We had lunch at our favorite Asian restaurant – Mao. It was good but as I told Kate, I will be so glad to be at home where they fill up your diet coke throughout the meal. But despite my complaining – we really did have a nice meal.

After the meal we walked down the Dun Laoghaire pier, through the People’s Park and got on the bus back to Cabinteely. Patrick’s mom got a nice cake and we all had a piece.

Sunday night Patrick and I went in to see the Traditional Music Gala Concert at the Olympia (same place we saw I, Keano a couple of nights before). Our seats were excellent, the music was nice – the woman humming long behind us was a little crackers. But we left at the intermission – we were just too tired from a long weekend and both being a little sick.

So, maybe that wouldn’t be my favorite way to spend a birthday, but Patrick seemed to enjoy it.

Thanks for your help in publishing the Freebird. Just finished reading. Didn’t realize Pat and family were back in Ireland. Sounds like an exciting challenge and great opportunity for the kids. Thanks again.

My God, those girls are lookers!! It appears they’re either inside Newgrange, or in a cave somewhere…

Hi guys. I was reading the Irish Fair Newsletter online and stumbled on your site. Nice work. Hope the year is going well!

You have a good eye – we were up at New Grange and the girls were hiding in part of the recreated section in the intrepretative center.

Thanks! Ann
