I can relate genetically with Ireland as my Great, Great, Granddaddy came over from there in 1853. Powers is the family name.
Ireland is a sovereign state of north-western Europe. It is also called the Republic of Ireland. The capital and largest city is Dublin located on the eastern part of the island. Dublin’s metropolitan area consists of about 1/3 of the country’s population. The government is unitary parliamentary republic, Irish and English are the official languages. Having travel there for a few days while I was in the Navy, I found Ireland to be a beautiful country and the people very nice. At the time a bit cool and damp, but that is true the Europe when I was living there. Ireland was founded December 6, 1921.
