Our Christmas cards are out! We know it's early but can it ever be too early for Christmas?! The cards are from a collection printed by Kelly Cards and part of the proceeds go to Focus Ireland.

We are gearing up for The Gathering here in the office and in our excitement we came across an interesting article by The Independent. Some of you may remember the film The Quiet Man because it's extremely iconic and features John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, others may know of it because of the amazing little cottage in North Connemara that is featured in it.

Mr. Ebbitt agreed to sell the property last August as was reported in the Irish Central but he has once again changed his mind to the great disappointment of locals and film lovers alike.
Why the California resident continues to jerk around the Irish government and people is beyond our understanding but we sincerely hope the property gets returned to both the Irish people and the film's fans and restored.
