Hi Frances. Thank you for your lovely note and your kind and generous words. I appreciate your reaching out to me. I apologize for not responding sooner, but I just found your note. (I really should check my website correspondence more frequently.) I remember your family well, in particular your father/grandfather (?) Joe Smullen. (He used to cut my brother Tony’s hair!) A lovely man.
I’ll be sure to look you up the next time I’m home in Ireland. Warmest wishes, Connie 🙂
