La breithe shona dhuit, Tricia
Patricia and I went to Lough Rynn Castle to have afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday today. What a place. Amazingly beautiful grounds, great service, and a glorious estate where people get married and have affairs. (But with sufficient time in between I am sure.)
This place was the home of Lord Leitrim under the British occupation. He did a lot to make this the magnificent estate and grounds what it is. But he was horrible to all his workers and tenant farmers. He, of course, was assassinated.
And now they have a lovely tea service.
All the best for a great year, dear friend. Happy Birthday.
