Nicky had his 18th birthday, Thursday, April 17th. We are so proud of him, but he still can’t have the car keys.

There are at least four castles named Castle of Dromore or Dromore Castle in the counties Down, Kerry, Limerick and Tyrone. Several discussions on the Internet are dedicated to pinpoint the geographical location of the lullaby Castle of Dromore without decisive outcome. I have chosen the Castle in Limerick for the setting of this lullaby, which is one of the oldest extant Irish songs. This tune is sometimes called October Winds after the lyrics of Sir Harold Boulton published for it in 1892.
