Thank you for your reply. Well I would like to spend time writing. I am planning to bundle some short stories and poetry together. To be Ireland would be wonderful while doing this. Westport has a special place in my heart. The first time I visited I felt so at home even more than beautiful Dublin where I was born. There is a story about Westport that is shaping in my head. I love Galway, the atmosphere and the people is delightful. But the whole west coast is wonderful where I traveled with my children when they were small. We had an absolutely wonderful time. Everone was kind and helpful, right up to Donegal.
When I lived in Ireland, most weekends I hitch hiked around Ireland, every weekend had a story. I have worked in Belfast and N. Ireland is beautiful. The people on both sides warm, deep and friendly. Growing up in Dublin, I believe I was quite spoiled. The beaches and the surrounding mountains were always a treat to visit.
Ireland to me is a place for the arts, a place you are never alone but can be if you want to be. There is always a helping hand. I want to spend my time meeting people, laughing, enjoying the wild Atlantic Way. I have been a Welfare Officer and would like to meet people envolved in this work. I love history and mithology and love to bring this into my writings. But most of all I want enjoy nature and the sounds of Ireland and to enjoy my writing. With one or two planned visits to Dublin I should be busy enough.
Thank you for the tips Antoine.
