"Far beyond the bountiful Allo,
and westward of Glen Celsian
of the stately trees,
in a fair land of great prosperity,
it is the the domain of the noble

    O'Heeran, Irish poet,  c.1400

Who are the MacAuliffes and where was their 'land of great prosperity?   In the tradition of my ancestors I invite you to make yourself comfortable and listen to some Irish music while I tell you their story.

Keep looking in - there's more to come !

December 2001. Until now I haven't worked much on the site for a long time - my continuing apologies to those who have been waiting for new material. Full-time job and university work keeps me very busy, but I will eventually get there, so do keep watching. I've enjoyed the many e-mails so please keep them coming. The site needs better promoting but I haven't yet learned how to do that, so if anyone can help I'd be really pleased to hear from you!
