Memories of Ireland

Harmonious Wail hosts an annual trip to Ireland (fingers crossed -- soon to be bi-annual!). We hit the road with 20+ of our closest friends, a couple of instruments and a hankering for seeing the nation where the magic started - and to drink some Jameson (or Sims and Maggie’s choice Bushmills!)  and some Guiness (of coarse)  in the process!!!. [...]
