It's crazy how your kids make friends at school, then the parents become mates too. So with the Barrys who then emigrated some 15 years ago and left for the shores of Ireland. We regularly see them when we visit Dublin and their village of Navan and they paid us a visit last night on their trip with their 2 girls Shannon and Kirsty to show them something of the land they had left.
There were 15 of us for a braai at the guesthouse. Although Mark's friend Steven did not join his sister's on the trip, it was a chance for the kids to catch up.
