The Faheys Of Slinaun

I am talking to people

I have never met

Hands across the ocean

Cousins in Chicago

Family devotion


A little house in Slinaun

Six sisters and a brother

Three went to America

Goodbye to their mother


Relations in Chicago

All I ever knew

Now I hunt the Internet

Say how do you do


A journey across the ocean

Occasional letter home

I love you love you mammy

So sad I had to roam


I have visited the homestead

Sat inside the place

Imagining the family

Forebears of my race


Scattered lives united

Family and friends

Tell each other stories

Loving never ends
