THE SECRET TO GREAT PICTURES OF FAMILIES
Okay, there’s no single secret trick. If only it were that easy! So many Mahons, and at one point it was right and left, and there were the slow walkers, and those who just wanted to get it over… but this is what happened and they did it well.
The Pink Mahons– Descendants of:
And there were only two from Orange County Ca. Cheryl Moss said:
“I took Janet and Jim Miles who came up from LA, Calif., out to the homestead of her great-great-grandfather Thomas who came from Ireland. A few buildings remain, not in good shape after 190 years but Janet was able to feel the logs he hand cut to build his home. It was very emotional for her and she was soooooo grateful. The smile on her face, her laughter meant so very much to me”.
The Yellow Mahons— Descendants of:
I got out JUST in time to catch them dispersing from the group shot. But here they were.
The Green Mahons–— Descendants of:
Now, this was a crowd– how they got together in one bunch I will never know.. but they did it and it did not take a long time.
The Final Product- Well done everyone!!
The only Mahon to compete in the Perth Kilt Run
So– do the Irish wear kilts? Though the origins of the Irish kilt continue to be a subject of debate, current evidence suggests that kilts originated in the Scottish Highlands and Isles and were worn by Irish nationalists from at least 1890 onwards and then cemented from the early 1900s as a symbol of Gaelic identity.
