COVID-19 put a lot of things on hold for all of us. For Kate and me, it meant that a trip for two to Ireland in May, 2020 became a family trip for five in October, 2021. It was the first time the five of us were together since the pandemic began. We enjoyed the hospitality of the Irish, great food, and the chance to visit the Shea homestead in Derrygarrane. It was all worth the wait!
