This week we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by going to the parade in Youghal, and Seth was actually in it this year with the Youghal Musical Society. They even won a trophy for being the ‘Best Culture Group’ in the parade! The same day, we had some friends from America come who are in Ireland for a holiday (vacation) and made time to spend a couple of days with us. It was wonderful to see them (there’s nothing like old friends, is there?) and we had beautiful sunshine to show them around a bit as well. Ireland looks good all the time, but when the sun shines, it’s incredible! Jessica also had her birthday this week, so tomorrow we’re going to the Cork Opera House to see a Rat Pack tribute band. It’s a good week!
