It has been three years since I’ve visited me Mammy in Ireland – because of COVID. But, the borders are open again and flying is almost back to normal (except the tickets cost about three times what they did in 2019).
Anyway, my brother and I (and our sister in Germany) booked our flights to coincide with a Hartigan-family reunion, which turned out to be a great night.
As a ‘gift’ to the family, I made a box to house my grandparents’ Irish War of Independence service medals – and returned them to home soil, where they belong. I also made a set of candlesticks for me Mammy.
