January 2009 Newsletter
A Tribute to Thomas Casey

Thomas Casey Portrait

Dear Friends,
We have received some sad news from Ireland. Our dear friend, Thomas Casey, passed away on December 31th. He was such a lovely man and a genuine nice person, as are his wife and family. He helped us out so many times on our first two of trips to Mohill. The first time we met him, he poured Terry and me a free pint of Guinness just because I was a descendent of a Casey. He made arrangements for us to rent the Francis Heslin cottage in Drumgrania for the summer of 1998, and he drove us when we needed to go to town or to Carrick. I thought of him as an uncle. During the last two trips we made to Ireland, we were unable to visit him because he was ill, but he had recovered and was back to his old self. The news of his passing was very unexpected. We have extended our deepest sympathy to his wife, Maura, and the rest of his family. God speed, Thomas, you will be sadly missed.

I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday! Now that the holidays have passed, things are pretty much back to normal at LittleShamrocks.com. We had so many questions and comments in December and thousands of people were searching through our holiday recipes.

Speaking of recipes, I will be searching through my cookbooks during January to find some new recipes for Valentine's Day. We have added several more affiliates to our store and there are many more choices for chocolates and gift baskets for your loved ones.

In case you missed last months newsletter, we now have a 'Questions and Comments' page where you might find the answer to your question. I will post any new questions if the answer is not already there. We would also love to hear about your favorite Irish story or about your special trip to the emerald isle. Please don't forget to tell your friends about the free candy e-cookbook that they will receive for signing up for our newsletter.

So, I will look forward to writing the next newsletter including some new recipes.

Until next time ... Ath Bhliain Faoi Mhaise! (Happy New Year!)
