Simply said on being Irish, Maureen becomes Irish from her mother with  grandparents' emigration from Northern Ireland, and later able to obtain the  Republic of Ireland passport. In recent

autumn 2023 trip to return to her homeland, Maureen visits her grandmother's homestead from where she departed with husband and small child to set up her new world abroad in small Saskatchewan farming community.  

Maureen continues enjoying travel across Western Canada much to the delight and envy of her Northern Irish large extended family.
