We celebrated the birthday of my oldest living relative in Oakland today. Margaret Harrington, my grand-aunt, was born in CastletownBere in Ireland 100 years ago. About 40 descendants of the Harrington family and their families got together. I met some cousins I had never met before, and got reacquainted with some others that I hadn't seen on a happy occasion for a while.

Aunty Madge should be expecting her Centenarians Bounty from the President of Ireland any day now.
