Saints be praised and shake me shilalie!!


By the luck of the blarney stone this blog was sent to me written by the Irish. I loved the blog because I'm partial...I know that a person who critiques is supposed to be impartial, but that would be no fun. This is my story of hanging out with the Irish and you won't believe it...but it's true. One of my last visits with my great aunt Marge before she passed away was a visit to the Rockefeller Estate with my Aunt's 2 friends,Malachy and Frank McCourt of Angela's Ashes fame...The estate for the most part is a tourist attraction now, but we met Mary Louise Rockefeller, my Aunt's other friends who took us for a private tour. What a cool group of people. Now that I'm done name dropping...back to your fantastic blog. I loved it all except the Bottom Feeder Syndrome...The side bar is all the way at the bottom. Nice job and keep it coming!!

I love love love this blog. Since I never get to travel, I'm living through Macoosh. And I'm a redhead just like her, so we're like a little bloggy family.

I LOVE this blog also, she writes with wit and charm, and isn't too afraid of coming off silly to be honest. It's great to hear about her travels!!

I secretly (until now) wish I were a talented, passionate, beautiful, silly, hilarious, serious, spunky, fiery redhead. Since I'm not, I am addicted to this wonderful blog. Macoosh for BLOG PRESIDENT!

What can be said about a girl whose use of the language is so poetic. It's a joy to read this blog daily. Her accounts of average daily events are charming and hearty.
I love it.

It's at the top of my RSS feeds! ... but then the feed list is alphabetical and it's saved under "A chuisle mo chroi", so...

Anyway, started reading lately and find it quite interesting. I'm trying to learn to write, so I like the posts about her directing, etc. Hmm, I have another novice writer friend and one who's trying to learn cinematography...

Macoosh is my long lost twin - we're both redheads, anally retentive neat freaks, afraid of haunted houses, and we both have Boston accents (though hers will have an Irish lilt to it soon if it doesn't already!) She's my BBF (Best Blogging Friend) and I absolutely love reading her blog - even the Lost updates, and I don't even watch that show!

So much energy, a writer that is loyal to her blog and always has something new and interesting posted.

What can I say about this blog that will knock your socks off? I am addicted to it and look forward to it everyday. If Macoosh misses a day I get a little depressed. As her mother, it gives me the opportunity to live my life vicariously through hers. She is an amazing writer and always has been. I also enjoy the other blogs, too. I wish I knew how to do the whole thing so I could join in. Macoosh says I can do it but I am not computer savvy and I just e-mail so when I did decide to do something different, I spend 5 hours typing and then somehow deleted it! I cried for an hour over that one. Anyhow, again, I love this blog (the blogger, too)but don't tell her I skip over the "Lost" ones because I do not watch the show and it's too confusing.

One week in early August I was looking for blogs about people who are expats and where living in Ireland..since I was already and still am planning on moving there early December this year ....

Then all of the suden I came to find this blog..with weird name of Macoosh...but from the moment I started readig I was hooked, Not only does Macoosh writes in detail her experience leading up to Ireland, but also the mix feeling of leaving hear home to a far land ...

I have cried and laughed during this blog, it has touched me in so many ways and thank you Macoosh..because back in early August I was having mixed feelings about moving, but since reading your blog I can say that my dream also one day will become true like your's did...

You deserve all the best....

And also I have loved the name Macoosh...
