A return to County Mayo

I’m just back from a few days in County Mayo in the beautiful west of Ireland, one of the settings for Hello from the Gillespies. This time last year I was there doing my final edits to the book and checking some research details and it was so lovely to be back there again, with a copy of the finished book in hand! (My big thanks to the McDonnell family of Liscarney for their warm welcome and hospitality, yet again.) For those of you who have read the novel, and wondered what the scenery I describe looks like in real life, here are a few photos.
