I went to visit County Tyrone blindly, hoping to find a headstone or two in the churchyard of a long lost family member, and maybe a story or two about them... nope, found a whole batch of terrific new relatives!! Well... new to me. They knew they were there...

BTW, the scenery is very nice, reminds me of Eastern Pennsylvania's rolling hills and farmland. You can catch glimpses in the background of some of the pictures...

Four days were spent with my new-found family. They treated us like visiting royalty! I hope I can do the same for them someday soon!
