I happened upon your site, it is quite lovely and I really enjoy the music.  Since you know a little about the Gore-Booths, I was wondering if you have ever heard of the Gore-Jones family?  The Gore-Jones family in Drumcliffe lived very close to the Gore-Booth estate at Lisadell.  I have been researching the Gore-Jones family and have come to a halt in Sligo.  I believe that somewhere there is a connection between the two families, this is just a hunch though.  The two families both Gore with a hypen living so close.  If you might have any knowledge of this, I would be very interested.

Thank You

I just typed in my last name to see what would come up. And your website had my last name which not very many people have. So I'm very surprised to see my last name on your website. There's only like 13 Scullane's in the U.S. that I know of. The rest of them are in Ireland somewhere.

Hello, Your site is lovely - too lovely to keep to oneself. A computer question: How do I pass along items from this section of your site? (Prayerful Thoughts and Thoughtful Prayers ) Some sites have the option that says e-mail to a friend. Yours requires me to know more than how to press a button!
Thanks very much,

the Journey

For those who have just joined me on this page why not go to the beginning of our travels and see some of the places in The Start of Our Journey through the West of Ireland.

My Place Amongst the Stones gives the history of my company name, Moytura - a celtic heritage going back thousands of years.

We journey to my own parish of Lackagh - a small village just 12 miles from Galway with a mighty big history. Learn all about the Battle of Knockdoe - one of Ireland's bloodiest of conflicts in the 16th century.

We then move on to take a quick jaunt around Galway City; and then to the heart of Connemara - with its wild and wonderful beauty.

From there we journey south into County Clare and see The Burren - a place that has lain undisturbed since the Ice-age and of immense botanical, ecological and archaeological importance.

Visit Ireland's finest early monastic heritage centre in Clonmacnoise, County Offaly; and to my favourite of all the early Christian Church locations - Clonfert, South County Galway, with its beautiful tiny 12th century Cathedral of Saint Brendan. Come with me around the grounds and see the Bishop's Palace and the 1000 year old Yew Walk.

While on the Clonfert pages, you can learn a potted history of Saint Brendan the Navigator, possibly the first European to set foot in North America in the 6th. century. And join me in the celebrations when this tiny cathedral was listed in the World Monuments Watch 2000 most endangered monuments.

Come with me on my 'Famine Journey' which starts in Westport, and moves to Sligo, my Dad's County and the departure port for many of the 'Coffin Ships'. This part of my journey ends in Grosse-Île on a tiny island east of Quebec City.

On this page you will learn some of the history of our Famine Refugees and find the final resting place of over 6,000 of my country folk who died within sight of their first freedom in over 300 years. This is where many of the Irish roots in North America started.

Our Journey moves on to other places on that visit to Canada where we see Quebec City and some of Ontario's lovely places and then to two of Canada's famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and to Cap-de-la-Madeleine.

Finally, join me on my pilgrimage to a peaceful haven in a war-torn country in Medugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovinia. The other areas of my Web site can be found in the drop-down box below.
