Anne is a retired school librarian. Richard works part time as a consultant in a medical laboratory. We have two grown sons... both live in Thailand at this time. We love to travel and Ireland has been our "list" for a long while. We are actually doing a "home exchange" with a couple who live near Galway. They will be vacationing in our mountain cabin in North Carolina. On our way to their home we hoped to see some of the Irish countryside that we have been reading about.
