Pictured at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Sunday night splendid American visitors with their McSweeney Family connections. Most of the guests are from Boston while one (Donny) is from South Carolina. The Irish connection springs from the Daly sisters of Lomanaugh (near Boherbue). From left: Donny, Sally, Nora Dennehy, Michael, Nuala and Sarah McSweeney, Blair, Lisa and Kathleen. The Visitors are also scheduled to visit Tallow, Co. Waterford where we hope they will have a wicked (!) enjoyable time! The only two places of which we are aware that use the word “wicked” meaning “very” seem to be Co. Waterford …. and Boston!
