The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Hi all,

After a best ever holiday in Canada we are recovering from Jet Lag & a cold virus we contacted on arrival in Ireland.

However we can't complain as we had a wonderful 4 weeks in the Mulmur Hills, such wonderful scenery & sunrises & sunsets, not to mention the new house & gardens.

Joe was at home & didn't want to leave the place any day but spent his time pottering around, doing odd jobs like mowing the lawns, burning old debris from the trees & chopping wood for the outside night fire.

Of course Bronagh & I were off most days round the shops in Orangeville & wee antique shops in quiet villages, where I spent my time picking up odds & ends. We enjoyed our freedom & the time spent in Coffee shops & at the markets & bookshops.

It was great to see Mauri & Joy again in Cookstown, they look good, such nice people. They travelled half-way to meet us & were on time too.

Joe says he would go back again which is a miracle for him as he goes nowhere, but he really enjoyed the country scenery & the hills of Headwaters so we may start saving again for the next time......Pat
