    I’ve always found it difficult to make close friendships with men. There’s so much personal stuff they don’t want to talk about. In my experience women are much more open about everything.

    This is totally atypical in the Indian situation. There is definitely segregation of the sexes in get-togethers but the conversation is vibrant at both sides. When in closer circles like in family get togethers, everybody including children pitch in and it is usually a tower of babel experience.

    (I appreciate that the photographs are not of one event.)

    What a stunning pic of you GM! Love it!! And the ladies.

    Maybe I’m awfully lucky but the male friends I have are all talkers and love to natter away over a good dinner or coffee.

    shackman – We ladies know how to enjoy ourselves.

    Keith – You know Will, Darragh and George. Phil O’ Camera and Niamh Smith were on the other side of the room, while Elly was organizing food in the kitchen. it was St Patrick’s Day 2009. Only home from the parade, everyone was catching up on the buzz of the day. Phil had a slide show going of his amazing photographs, on the large TV screen.

    Nick – These guys are grand and when we get round the table, the craic is mighty. I was banished from the kitchen so took the advantage of the shot.

    Ramana – You are correct, these photos are from two different years. We girls had taken part in a photoshoot for the Irish Times Magazine, in the morning, so were happy to relax over a late lunch and a wee drop of wine!

    WWW – These guys are great talkers, once the food arrived we settled back for a grald ould chat.

    gigi – We usually begin and end that way. Everyone gets a job in preparing the meal, then we relax and talk for Ireland.

    AD – We sure do!

    Fossie – Now that would be one fun photo shoot… You and Mayo flouncing about in your dresses!

    Al – The guys are all great pals. Elly & George’s home is well known for the tasty food, welcome and great craic .*

    Craic means: general banter, fun/enjoyment and good times.

    Gail – I am glad to hear it. Would that be the reason we have not heard from Mayo very often lately?
