    Very good Sean, I love history and you sure can supply it. Thank you. I thought you had gone away someplace as I did not see any posts in a few days. I just saw on Facebook the month of June s going to be hottest ever in Ireland, hope that includes the northern part as well.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Snippets of this kind are interesting to be sure, but would be even more so if their source were cited.
