A pocket sized guide to the Emerald Isle of Ireland, bought by me when we took my then, recently widowed mother, to find her reputed roots in the village of Avoca set in the beautiful Wicklow Mountains 

(You may know it by the fictional name of Ballykissangel, from the TV series of the same name, which follows the life of father Clifford, an English priest directed by the church to go lead a flock in Ireland, as if they didn't have problems of their own enough already, I only watched the series to see Asumpta FitzGerald played by the lovely Dervla Kiwan

My mother wasn't suited that we didn't find any cousins although I'm sure we met them, in every village and town and I, to be sure fell in love with the place and its people.

Today we would like to salute HM Royal Marines in their 350th year.

In 2014 the Corps of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines celebrate their 350th anniversary.  To commemorate this date, Royal Marines Commandos ski,'d, sailed, cycled, canoed and ran 6656km (circa 4136 miles). The aim was to encapsulate the Commando spirit and Corps values in a significant physical and mental challenge.

Today, we'd also like to salute
