Here, in Dublin, at the house on Emorville Avenue

Sunday evenings we dine together, an English-style roast, or steak dinner, the full setting, the six of us together! It's become a kind of arrangement with the continuing lockdown here, and we take turns preparing and cooking, and yesterday it was the guys turn, and they made roast chicken dinner!

We seem like a little family together despite recent events, and it always feels good sitting around the table together and open wine bottles offered, and enjoyed.

So the group all live in the house, or are outsiders invited in to partake of the repast?

Sounds homely. Pity you can't have an open turf fire; Bord na Mona - those were the days! Still; they can't stop you drinking a hot whisky.

Ireland is one of the many countries that are very family oriented.馃嚠馃嚜 The USA is not.
[@1147216,PolePleaser] There is the[i] lack of a family bond[/i] in the US among those of us who are [i]not family oriented[/i]. That much is true.

As I have read in the past that Ireland is actually an Island. That has had a static population of somewhere around 2 million residents living on its home soil, with perhaps as many as two million more residing and employed in foriegn lands.

Also, that for at least two generations, it's exiting citizens are permitted to reclaim their Irish citizenship if they should (and often do) return to live in Ireland.

This arrangement clearly rewards and benefits every family in that country if this is all true.

So it's only logical that the Irish would have even more reason to hold family values with such high regard. It's always a sanctuary for an Irish prodigal son, so to speak.
