Retired in Ireland

Hi, moved to Ireland many moons ago and retired early about 3 years ago. My wife is not 100%, I'm looking to widen a circle of friends and join a few clubs with my limited free time.

Any ideas???

It was just that you were a bit vague about your wife wanting to stay in Ireland or something else .Are you both in Ireland now. I was there for 15 years .,The Southern bit

Hi what part of Ireland are you from? My gran came from south west Ireland I've never been, so would love to visit. I have researched my family tree on my granddad's side to the 18th century, but got stuck with gran's as the Irish records got burned.
