News and Updates
First, our Irish house band live online show.
Let’s see, we went live online on Sunday

the video, and a Dublin time change threw
things off for some.
Never realized how important it is to be

We used Concertwindow.com, and got live
comments on the screen from Chris in Australia,
Tony in Dublin, Ireland, and several states
in the U.S.. We figured out how to fit 3 people
on my computer screen (myself, Stevie, and Rob).
All of my songs on this first show were in Irish,
including, Si do mhaimeo i, Oro Se, Cunnla, and
a few more. Stevie did her ‘Bean Phaidin’ in Irish
and backed me up on a few. Rob, came in with
guitar on a few as well. Hope you can tune in
for the next show… Send in your requests.

My DNA Test
I am expecting the return of my DNA test to come

our own ‘Irish Families’ project group, which may
have matches in it already for my O’Laughlin and
Donahue lines. Will keep you posted as I go along here
