I concurr with gaelicgirl2...Pres. Mc Aleese's speech at Irish Fest in Milwaukee was the most wonderful address I've heard. We were fairly close to the stage and she was very humbled to be addressing such a crowd from what I could discern from her face. She even got a little teary eyed when presented a "friendship" quit that was made by some of the kids in the Irish Fest Summer School.
I only wish more of the worlds leaders were as interesting. Maggie you are truely blessed to call her your President. There are several of us here in the states that are jealous we can't have her ourselves.
Senara-ism : Life is like a theatrical production only you get to be actor, director, and audience all at once. So break a leg, sit back and enjoy the show!
