“Every pain is a lesson.”
Frank Delaney, The Matchmaker of Kenmare

“Do you know what the difference is between Friendship and Love? Friendship is the photograph, Love is the oil painting.”
Frank Delaney, The Matchmaker of Kenmare

“We Irish prefer embroideries to plain cloth. To us Irish, memory is a canvas--stretched, primed, and ready for painting on. We love the "story" part of the word "history," and we love it trimmed out with color and drama, ribbons and bows. Listen to our tunes, observe a Celtic scroll: we always decorate our essence.”
Frank Delaney, Tipperary
