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!
