You say, you'd love to get to Ireland someday, may I ask why don't you, after all you only have one life,
make the most of it. Can I say I don't live there any more, I now live in England, but hope to go back to Ireland for a holiday, maybe this year. If you like the the countryside, hills, mountains, valleys, lakes,
little bridges, rivers, unspoilt beauty, then there is no need to go abroad, it's all here in the UK & Ireland.
