Hi everybody. I’ve put my website onto my phone so it won’t always look fancy!

I discovered a really poignant thing yesterday from my neighbour, Michael.  As he told me, “A little fragment of history linking our little corner of the world to events 100 years ago.” A former resident of our old family home in the country was the widowed mother of a soldier of the Enniskillen Fusiliers who died in France on October 31st, 1918  placed an advertisement in the Irish Times.  A reason to plant a tree on 11/11 in  I think. It will also be Michael D’s inauguration day, our Patron of Crann – Trees for Ireland.  I think it will be a Holm Oak!
