  1. Your book LOTDP was recommended by a brother-in-law. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I was very jealous of your wonderful adventure. My mom was from Newtoncunningham, Donegal, in the free state abou halfway between Derry and Letterkenny. Some of the most fertile land in Donegal, but she and 3 sisters and one brother all emigrated to NY and Philadelphia in the 1920s. There were no jobs at home. The younger siblings all stayed home, and have had happy prosperous lives there.
    My Dad hailed from Mass, near Glenties in the Western part of Donegal. He was a Kennedy, and my Mom’s family are the Gillespies. Too bad none of them put you and lovely Missie up.
    I think you should try and publish your books in large print. There are lots of senior citizens, who would enjoy it in that format.
    I look forward to reading your second book. Thanks, Pat O

    • Dear Kevin,
      I just finished reading your book. It was on a display in our Escondido library. I feel as though I journeyed with you. Thank you for the wonderful trip! Most of the replies were from three years ago. I hope you are doing well. I have traveled in England and other countries, but never in Ireland. Hope I can find your “second book”.

  2. Hi Kevin
    Just finished Last of The Donkey Pilgrims and would love to here you do a reading from your book. Do you have anything planned in December ? I live in Southern Vermont so I’m not all that far away from Massachusetts . I was in Ireland in September traveling over some of the same parts of the country you mentioned in your book. I had dinner at O’Conners Pub in Doolin then spent two days in Dingle , I biked Slea Head Drive . Then headed north climbed Crough Patrick , got the ferry to Clare Island . Visited Glendalough then drove up the Salley Gap road . I was only home a couple of days when I started reading your book and having just been in the same places and then reading about your journey around Ireland was amazing. This was a trip I did on my own , but it was just 11 days not 11 months. Anyways please let me know when something comes up in the future . It would great to here you talk about your book . Thanks Dale

  3. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your wonderful journey. I had always dreamed of doing this in Scotland -but on horseback!!! I really looked forward each night to reading another portion of you travels. I was a great way to go to sleep. I was so sad to finish your book!!!
    Thanks again to you and Missie!!!

  4. Just finished “Last of the donkey pilgrims” ,the signed copy I got when you came to Albany 5-27-14. It was a very entertaining read and having been to IRELAND but once it did make me remember some of the sites.I would like to know the reason for walking and praying in a clockwise direction? Are you planning any future return to the capital region at any time soon? You mention tea and LOAF QUITE OFTEN,WHAT IS THE LOAF YOU REFER TO.
