Himself & Herself
Bridget Nancy Margaret O'Flaherty emigrated to the United States in 1963 to marry the man she had met on a blind date in London, England.
Today, Mr & Mrs Russell Haggerty both work out of the "money pit" - a ramshackle Queen Anne residence in Cincinnati, Ohio, where they raised a family, dropped out of corporate America and now pursue freelance careers in consulting, writing and whatever else will keep the lights on.
Bridget is working on several new books; one will be somewhat of a sequel to The Traditional Irish Wedding and will cover the milestones in an Irish childhood.
Russ is also trying his hand at writing - a mystery novel that isn't set in Ireland but has many Irish connections.
When they're not chained to the computers, Russ stays busy with restoring the house and Bridget does her best to clean up after him.

Ireland's oldest city
Situated in south eastern Ireland on the river Suir - pronounced Shure - Waterford was founded by the Vikings in 914. It was taken over by the Anglo-Norman invaders of the 12th century and was one of the most important Old English centres in medieval Ireland. Today, Waterford is world famous for its intricately cut crystal which was made in the city from 1783 until early 2009. Waterford is also known for being the home of Ryanair which began operations in the city with a 14-seat turboprop aircraft flying between Waterford and Gatwick Airport. Other claims to fame include being the first place where the the tri-colour flag of the Irish Republic was flown; it's also where the the modern bacon curing process was invented and it's where Ships Biscuits were first manufactured by Jacobs - they're better known nowadays as cream crackers!
