St Patrick's Day, Hooray!!

I am an Irish Catholic! 
My mother is an Irish Catholic and from railroad people to boot!  Every year on St. Paddy's day, I fix all the foods that she was raised with including my grandmother's fudge cake.  This year, one of my cousins found out that our ancestors came from the County Limerick region of Ireland and presented us all with a picture of one of our grandparents!  This is SO cool, ya think?

Anyway, here is a picture of my great-great grandfather, Matthew Dewey.  Funny, the more I look at him, the more I see my older brother, Mike, mustache and all!

Me, the sandwich kid between 2 boys above
Mike and his wife of 28 years, Lori and me.

There's a definite resemblance. Nice to be able to reach back that far in your ancestry to learn about your family! I'm Irish Catholic too!!
