with Mike at the Irish Roots Cafe

Collection Video Released
I have gotten many requests over the
last 38 years to share more about
my Irish book collection. For a while
I even had a lending library, but
it just took too much time….

Now on Video at YouTube etc.
Here is the Free link to the video,
I picked out 1,000 items from my
collection and quickly put them
on video, to give folks an idea of
what I have collected over time.
The video includes family histories,
Irish Histories and more.

I may do more detailed videos on specific
items from the library in the future.
This could include Irish heraldry.

Today March 4, Saturday,
We are putting on a free session
of Irish Traditional and Old Style
song and dance at the Celtic Ranch
in Weston, Missouri at 1:00, with dance,
music, and song. All are welcome, though
by the time you get this word it may
well be over with…

Looking forward to seeing folks at
the Dublin, Ohio and Louisville, KY.,
Irish festivals again this year

All the best,
