Thank you for the pattern. Where is Co Antrim? I am in Illinois.
My dad is an Irishman,my maiden name is McGauley,my grandmother was a McCusker and my great gram was a McGillvary :D
I claim a strong Irish ancestry, and my older relatives had that wonderful brogue.
I used to travel with religious pilgrimages, all over, as a nurse. I hoped to get to Ireland.
I can still enjoy the music, and gorgeous lace from Ireland.
Thank you so much for this - -
