"Sláinte!" (Health!/Cheers!)

In 2008 I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to Ireland with my Dad and my two girls, it was a trip that I will cherish forever. We saw amazing scenery, met the nicest people, ate wonderful Irish food and stayed in some truly amazing places. We were on a tour bus with a very entertaining tour guide and nice group of people. Our tour included the basics, touring routes, accommodation, and sightseeing in Dublin, Galway (including Connemara & Clare) Killarney, Waterford and Kilkenny. We enjoyed home cooked Irish breakfasts every morning, and true Irish hospitality.

Along with my great memories I brought back several souvenirs which I enjoy decorating with all year long, but especially in March. I always stop to look at Irish decorations and can't help adding to my collection. I have found some nice treasures at Cavanaugh's County Celtic shop in Butte Montana, the people are so friendly and they have a shop full of treasures. Below are some of my Irish decorations including the Belleek and Linens from Ireland.

If I ever get another opportunity to go back to Ireland I will jump at the chance. I can honestly say it was the best trip I've ever had.
