I have been back in Ireland since 1997 and feel lucky to have ended up living in a cute 1792 cottage built by Quakers. The land is 12 acres and belongs to my brother. It is the site of an old steel mill powered by the Blarney River flowing yards past my front door. It is very tranquil, totally unspoilt and is a wildlife sanctuary. I have had many wonderful experiences since my arrival, my greatest achievement being rearing a fox cub from about two days old until he was a beautiful adult of 5 years. He was totally at ease with me and accompanied me on evening walks around the land here (approx 12 acres). In February last year, he said goodbye in his own way and trotted off never to return. It was sad for me but good for him. We see otters, mink, voles, mice and every type of woodland bird from tiny goldcrests to the long-tailed tits. Dippers and kingfishers fish on the river and many ducks rear their young here in safety. I'll shut up now. Love to hear from likeminded nature lovers. Mary

If I could get my wife to step into a conveyance which leaves the ground, I would love to go and visit your country. So much of the music we play had its origin in your part of the world. All my ancestors came from England/Ireland/Scotland and I would sure like to see it before I die. Looks like I'll either have to outlive my wife or go without her.

Take a cruise over. It'd be all romantical and stuff. Especially when you hit the UK coast. Supposed to be quite a sight.
