The O’Tooles from Shillelagh Ireland (see above) visited their St Louis cousins earlier this month providing a welcome excuse for the clan to gather and reconnect with Laurence, Clare, Darren and Maeve. It was a thoroughly enjoyable respite from our winter doldrums and a warm up for St Patrick’s Day. Gatherings were held both at the farm and in town, with the Laws hosting a trip to the Museum of Transport, the Quicks a dinner in town, and the Dunns a luncheon in the country. Here is a brief video clip from the latter gathering:

The background music CD for the video clip was provided by Clare – thank you! While we are at it, here is a terrific rendition of Danny Boy from Clare’s CD. This recording is by the Chieftains and Diana Krall:

It was great having the Irish cousins stateside. Here’s hoping you had a pleasant St Patrick’s Day!



  1. Spectacular! I already miss that blue-eyed Maeve and the manly manly Darren !!!!

  2. What a glorious time we had! It was such a joy to see everyone. Aunt Louis puts on a helluva party. Lots of love from all of us. Clare O’Toole

  3. Bob, it was wonderful to see so many of the family together and the smiling faces all around. Clare, as all our family, treasures there connection with the extended family, and takes great going in the wild rumpus that ensues, thanks for keeping the chaos going. Love, ub
