    • Thanks Leonardette. Jackie started last week. I found her blog when I searched ‘Ireland’ in the reader.

I spent the better part of half a year with not a lot of support. It’s tough to keep sharing when you feel no one is listening. Good luck with the Reader. Enjoy!

  1. I’d love to visit some day! This post reminded me of the movie ‘Leap Year’. Rachel McAdams flies to Ireland to propose to her boyfriend cos apparently that’s the leap year tradition in Ireland. I watched it twice just cos I loved the Irish male lead’s accent! Oh now that reminds of how much I enjoy Chris O’Dowd! Ok. I have a thing for the Irish accent. And Chris O’Dowd.
