Happy Birthday Peg

Peg 16yrs stpaddysday

Omagh Co. Tyrone  NI.


This is a photo of my mother aged 16 on St. Patrick’s day 1926. Had she been alive today this would be her 105th birthday. Every year I have endeavoured to visit her grave on her birthday as mark of respect for not only Peg but for all my ( our ?) ancestors. I’m usually accompanied by my children, It’s something we know we should or need to do. It has nothing to do with religion or guilt, it’s just a lovely reminder of celebrating a life.  This will be the first time in many years that we’ll miss our pilgrimage.

Peg , I’m sure you’re still smiling your sunny smile, you were a great teacher and Mum, I love you.

Here’s to celebrating all our ancestors whoever and wherever they may be.

Blessings to all beings.
