IRELAND | Rosturk, Mulranny, Mayo

Rosturk Castle, Mulranny, Mayo, August 1987.
 Spike is dozing in the back. His granddaughter
Margie Marlin (about to be married in 2017) is
standing. Her older sister Laura has the red pail.
While the Marlins were growing up, we used to spend the summers in a rented cottage–Ste Adèle, Quebec, then Val Morin.

The years 1951-55 were special, because we lived in Europe (Dublin and Paris), spending our vacations in 1954-55 traveling on a "pilgrimage" around Europe.

Every year after that Spike and Hilda vS Marlin would find a place to rent in the Laurentian Mountains and then in Europe. They would invite over their children and grandchildren.

Examples:
  • Val Morin, Quebec, Canada (1956-62)
  • Robin Hood, Maine (1971)
  • La Ferté St Cyr, France (1972)
  • Florence, Italy (1976)
  • Skibbereen, Cork, Ireland (1983)
  • Rosturk Castle, Mulranny, Mayo, Ireland (1987-88)
Spike died in Berkhamsted, Herts. in 1994. HvS died in the same place in 2006.
