Erin with Calendar from Ireland – Sun. Dec. 13, 2015

Erin is holding a calendar of the Irish Coastline, which her cousin Mary sent her from Ireland. The cover is of the Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare which Erin, Paco, Clark and I visited in July 2007. Mary is 5 days older than Erin. Mary is the oldest of the 5 daughters of my 2nd cousin Eily (Canty) Coakley. Eily’s grandfather Jeremiah Canty and my grandfather, Michael Canty, were brothers. My grandfather came to San Francisco in 1881. Jeremiah remained in Ireland as have most of his descendants.

My nephew Dave Smith, has just visited with 2 of Mary’s younger sisters in Cork City. I will send photos of them shortly.

    How nice that Erin keeps in touch with a cousin in Ireland. It’s good to keep those ties. The Cliffs of Moher are pretty amazing. We had a spinster cousin whom people visited but she died several years ago. She lived in the house that my great grandmother lived in. It is about 60 miles from Dublin.
