"Look at Sabastian and Matilda O'Shea from County Carlow holding hands on the Rock of Dunamaise; a rocky outcrop in County Laois, Ireland. Hold on tight to your younger sister, Sabastian for there is no greater inheritance that your parents can leave you when the time comes for them to climb their last mountain than the love and support of a sibling. You will be able to milk each other for far more than you will ever yield from those prized cows on your parent's farm.
When you grow into manhood, and particularly during times when the going may get tough or some other life experience may bring you down low, that is the best time to look back on your childhood years and remember the day when you and sister Matilda stood on top of the world and cared not an Irish fig for anyone else below. Never forget that though many may climb to great heights in this world, few can naturally stand proud on the ground they occupy as that of an Irish man who knows instinctively that he was born to wear the crown of confidence and pride as he proclaims undying love for the soil of his sacred homeland.
Look after each other as only brothers and sisters can and though you may from time to time lack worldly resources, you will never be found wanting in each other's love; the love handed down to you by your father and mother." William Forde: November 2nd, 2015.
