    I am a member of Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians. A Christian Catholic womens charity organization. I am also the coordinator for Project Children. It is an organization that brings children from the flashpoint areas of Northern Ireland to the United States for 4 weeks each summer during the particularly turbulent times of the summer. I have been a host mother for the last 12 summers and the coordinator for the last 8...going on my 9th year. I raise awareness and funds and find host families and have been extremely Blessed to have found great success in all the endeavors of this venture. I have met some Wonderful children and most of them keep in touch and stay away from the violence there. I love football! Go EAGLES!!!

    I love all types of music but am very partial to Old Heavy Metal like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath. But I am very very versatile...I love Irish rebel music, Barbra Streisand, 70’s and 80’s classic rock, Led Zeppelin is my all time favorite and I believe the Beatles are the greatest band of all time. I love Nirvana, The Offspring,The Foo Fighters I also love Mummers music and if you are not from the Philadelphia area you will not understand this....it is the only place in the world it is found.

All 4 of my grandparents came from Northern Ireland...It is with great pride that I declare my Irish ancestry and will keep trying to change the face of Northern Ireland...One child at a time!
    I love sunsets, sunrises, reading, writing, poetry, the ocean , Autumn, The Novermber Sky and cooking!

                * The November Sky *
    There is Something About The November Sky It arrives full of fall and leads winters cry, The autumnal backdrop...Robust, Full of pride as the foliage is turning; few trees yet to cry.. their leaves of Burnt Orange, Yellow and Gold accenting the Browns, rusty yet bold. The leaves, some maroon, cast an invite to play against billowing clouds, all shades of gray. There’s Something About The November Sky rainbows in sunsets, cotton clouds reaching high, their pinks and the blues in contrast so bold against a horizon on fire with gold. There’s Something About The November Sky In all of it’s beauty brings tears to my eye for a time long past to all but me a time in my childhood...naive and free In memory long past so crisp, so clear In Novembers Sky long ago And in Memory right here!
