Something a little different here. This is a young me (Mark) with my Uncle Stephen outside his home and farm in #Mayo
taken longer ago than I care to remember. Stephen and his wife Sarah came across to our wedding back in 2008 and while Marie has met a lot of my #Irish #family
while we've been together she has never been to Ireland itself though we've mentioned it enough times.
Uncle Stephen sadly died yesterday and the funeral is likely very soon. We are unable to get the time off work at such short notice so won't be able to go across but my dad and brother and sister-in-law have hopped on a plane and are there already. Stephen was ridiculously Irish, quiet, gentle, strong, and spoke with a brogue that most often required Auntie Sarah to translate for us. He'll be missed by everyone.
