Photos of our 2004 Trip to Ireland

 
Recently, I phoned my aunt, Alice Lunney Gregory, who is recuperating at her daughter Amelda’s home after emergency surgery to remove a blood clot in her leg, and she is very anxious to get the "all clear" from her doctor to return to her own home in Westfield, Maine.  At age 94, Aunt Alice is a marvel of mind and spirit.  Alice told me that she had checked out this website, and asked where are all the photos from our family’s 2004 trip to Ireland. 
 
As the younger folk say these days…"My Bad".  I had posted a few of the photos here and there, but never got around to putting them all together with some sort of narrative.  Well, "my bad" has been taken care of…after a busy day on my laptop.  I put together a video slideshow of the photo highlights of our trip along with some narrative. You can watch the somewhat fuzzy YouTube version here by clicking on the arrow:
