80 people joined the weeklong event from three continents - what a party it was! Our families flew into Dublin and Margie and I treated them to some splendid Irish sightseeing on the way down to Kinsale - then all hands on deck to help decorate the tables etc. The "real" service was held in Cork at the chapel like room used by the civil service, followed that night by the Irish meeting the Americans taking over a restaurant for dinner.
Saturday was the big day - a Marquee was set up in Castlepark where everyone gathered for champagne and strawberries. Then up the hill to James fort for a few words. The best part of the event was the sing song - everyone added their bit of entertainment and when the evening was over we were reminded of how love really does circle the world.
