We recently visited Ireland, and in Co. Mayo we hooked up with some of my cousins. First cousins, once removed. The situation was a bit troubled, in that we had to cut short our trip on account of a death in the family, but the theme we heard from my cousins was, "when are you coming home again". Not when are you going home, but when are you coming home.
Is there any place like Ireland? Could anyone make you feel more welcome?
