Here is Margarets account of their trip: "We boarded our Delta Airline flight at 10:30 A.M. and arrived in Atlanta at 4:00 P.M. After a two hour wait, we changed planes to an L That flight was a very long all night trip over the ocean to Manchester, England. We then changed airlines to AIR LING-Uand arrived at Dublin, Ireland at 12 oclock noon the next day. Cousins, Theresa and Gerard Smyth, were at the airport to meet us. It was a very exciting and happy time. Dublin is a big city of a population of one million. The highways are narrow and the traffic is fast. We visited with the Smyths at their home for two days. One day we went shopping with them to one of their malls. We (the Kays and Fennells) also went on a bus tour of the City of Dublin. We visited St. Patricks Cathedral and the Trinity College Library and Museum. We saw so many interesting places, but it takes too much space to name everything. Our bus driver sang Irish songs on the tour and most of us joined in on the singing. We had a wonderful visit with the Smyths and said our goodbyes to begin our travels. On our entire trip, we stayed at the popular B & Bs (Bed and Breakfast). They were all nice places with five to ten rooms with a big dining room and places to relax. Most of them were very beautiful homes. We traveled to Galway Bay (Martin sings this song). It was beautiful there. We stayed there one night and went out to a pub. Most of the better eating places are served in private dining areas separate from the bar. We visited with the Celtic people there. Galway is also a big city. Most of the men work at the seaports. From there we traveled southwest from Gort and some of the larger cities.. Spiddil, Ennis, Kilrosh, Kilkee and Kilbaha. .being right on the west 10-1- 1.

That evening, we experienced the fun, the superb entertainment and feasting at the world famous Bunratty Mediaeval Castle Banquet. It was great! All along our travels we saw Castles, Land Lord Mansions when the English took over. We saw beautiful Cathedrals and Churches in every city. We traveled to Limerick, Killaloe and saw the dancers at the National Folk Theatre. Two of our favorite cities were Kilkenny and Killamey, where we saw many historical places of interest. On to Tralee and Tramore; to Cork and to Waterford, where we took a bus tour of the Waterford Crystal Centre, where we saw how they made the world famous Waterford Crystal. It was amazing. As we drove throughout Ireland, the scenic beauty of the countryside was indescribably gorgeous! There were so many species of plants, ferns and flowers, everygrowing where, .even along the highways as high as you can see. Everything is so green and alive. Rock walls are built in front of homes and on the highways and in the fields to separate the cattle and sheep. The food was wonderful and everything is homemade. The menu's consisted of beef, pork, lamb, chicken and fish. No corned beef!! Plenty of potatoes, vegies, salads and good soups, breads and desserts, plus lots of tea. We boarded our plane at Dublin for our flight home to the U.S.A. When we arrived in Salt Lake City, our entire family was at the airport to welcome us home. What a wonderful reunion it was! Dave and Sharis children were so happy to see Dad and Mom. We all went to Martin and Deons home for a lovely buffet dinner and a great We stayed overnight and the next day, JoRae and Terry and Eileen and Craig came home with us and stayed for a few days.

Perhaps you should have sympa- -. thy for thos doing the firing. A new study has found that managers who have to give bad news to employees have double their usual risk of heart attack in the week immediately following a firing. Researchers at 45 hospitals across the U.S. studied heart attack victims activities in the week before they suffered the attack. The most important predictors were working under deadline pressure and having to fire someone. The study of 791 working men and women also identified several other stressors that can trigger a heart attack, including angry outbursts and homy exertion, such as shoveling snow.
