An Irish Wedding

As I put this post together, I’m happy to report that I am on the mend. I’m still struggling with typing and working at the computer, but that was expected.

Since I knew it may difficult to continue posting for a while, I put together a slide show video before my surgery that features another one the highlights of our Ireland trip this past summer – Dustin and Joann’s beautiful wedding in the North Cork countryside of Southern Ireland.

Ballyvolane House - County Cork,

Ballyvolane House – County Cork,

We were so fortunate to join the families–we have been friends with Dustin’s family for decades now–for a wonderful two-day stay at an authentic classical Georgian home built in 1728. The Ballyvolane House was then modified in 1848 in Italianate style.

Ballyvolane House turned out to be an incredible place for a wedding and all of the events and meals that were part of the stay there. Let me know what you think when you see the video. To view the photoremedy video slide show below in high definition, just click the play button. Hover over the video, then click on the sprocket icon to the left of the clock and select 1080p HD.

Special thanks to the lovely Noriana Kennedy, who was so kind as to perform Dustin and Joann’s wedding music and who has allowed us to use a couple of her songs in our Ireland slide show videos. If you would like to read more about Noriana, or buy her music, you can visit her website at

As Dustin and Joann head into their first Christmas together as spouses, I thought it would be appropriate to share one of my favorite short Irish blessings with them and their families.

May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore.
