Bringing it all back home for the Cahill family Gathering in Kerry - PHOTOS
Dr. Kevin Cahill on the powerful pull of Irish roots and family history
The closing of the circle that is the Gathering, therefore, holds a powerful message for the future – for my grandchildren who live in the New World and for their cousins who continue to live in the Old. Something of the magic, and the mystery, of the streams, hills and vales of Auniskirtane continues to unite us as family no matter where we are in this global, complex, challenging yet continuously wonderful world we inhabit. That fact constitutes a precious gift that transcends distance and time – the gift of being Irish together and of being community to each other. By understanding that gift and accepting it, we enrich each other in a profound way, supporting each other as we continue the great journey forward, wherever we may be and wherever it may take us. And never forgetting those who have gone before us. We salute you, John D. may that soul of yours, burst apart by exile, be resting a bit easier this evening.
