Irish Connection Fourth
October 8, 2000
|Its been awhile since the clans last update. Needless to say like most people the summer is over and so is your free time. Everybody starts to get into his or her routines.|
Emily, Bridget, and Grace started school at Castle Park in Dalkey. They are enjoying it even though Emily and Bridget have to learn Irish and French. I havent heard any complaints yet, so that must be a good sign.
|Emily is also taking Violin lessons. Thank God, I have a tin ear.||
Grace (directly in font of Miss Joan) is having fun in Montessori school with her new classmates and the teacher Miss Joan.
Maeve is being Maeve.
|My parents (Jack and Claire Mac) came over in September. They stayed for a week then continued on to Scotland and London for 5 days before returning to Dublin to say goodbye.||

During their stay my father and I went out to the West of Ireland to play golf with the lads from the states that came over for the annual golf outing. The weather was fantastic as we played 54 holes of golf with only 3 holes of rain. We played Killarney Golf and Fishing Club, Ballybunion, Waterville, and The Old Head. It was fantastic. As this is a family web site I will not go into the R rated details of the trip.
the start of September, I make my annual hapless pledge to myself to get
in shape. To that end Becky and myself joined the Westwood Club, which
is the local fitness centre. The instructor weighed me in at a little
less then 14 stone. I hope to lose a full stone by the end of the year.
We shall see. Something about using stones as measurement doesnt make
your weight seem so bad.
have been listening to the Giants over the Internet every Sunday but it
doesnt recreate Sec 107 Row 11 of Giants Stadium. I hope the men in
Blue can turn it around. We shall see. Have faith.
I hope everybody has a good autumn. It is the best time of the year in
the states in my opinion. Ireland doesnt have much of an autumn. It
just goes grey to greyer until it is dark for about 16 hours. I guess
thats why they have pubs.
next update will be filed from Beckys native Deutschland (Germany).
We are going at the end of this month. It should be funny to watch Becky
use her High School German.
