Familiar Friends by Ann Treacy

So in our first few weeks in Dublin we’ve met up with a few familiar friends. (That’s my new euphemism for old friends.)

First I met up with Karina in Dun Laoghaire. Karina and I worked together many years ago at a café. My timing was perfect and I dropped in on Karina just has she was taking a break from her job at the book shop. I’m hoping to join her book club there.

A few days later we met up with our old friend John Newcombe. John worked in Minnesota years ago. John is working in a halfway home these days. SO half o his time is in Dublin and half in Kildare.

Finally we met with Gary Murphy, who we hadn’t seen in years. Gary used to work in Minnesota too. He moved back to Ireland about 10 years ago. It was fun to hear about all of the theater work he has done since he’s been home. I think Patrick especially enjoyed it as he probably recognized more names. I’ll include a YouTube video of Gary’s latest ad for folks who know him back home.

One of the hard things about moving here last time was never seeing anyone we knew. So it’s been nice to see familiar friends. Also it’s fun when the people in the local shops and in the park remember us. It’s a small thing but it backs Dublin more of a home away from home.
