- Brothers hit the road
Welcome to Celtic Connection.Org, the web site dedicated to
the happenings of the Fitzgerald-Clark families and extended clan.
Hopefully we'll all be able to stay in touch using this site,
and no one can ever say that we don't keep in touch! This is a
"living" site, so please contact me with your suggestions. Also,
email me with your latest updates and I'll pop them into the website
for you. -Brian
Within the next couple of weeks, Brian will be heading for the Middle East for an extended assignment for the Yakima Herald-Republic. As an embedded journalist with the US Army Reserve's 737th Transportation Company, based at the Yakima Training Center, Brian will cover every aspect of the soldiers' experience through the month of February.
Brian was chosen for the assignment after the Army Reserve contacted all newspapers in Eastern Washington and Western Idaho, areas in which most of the unit's members live. After Brian sacrificed several chickens and feigned indifference to his editors, he was selected for the trip.
Although coverage issues are still being decided, Brian will be shooting photos for daily publication in the YHR and will be writing some in-depth features and spot news stories. Stories can be found at http://www.yakima-herald.com.
The brothers hit the Old World
Back for a repeat performance of their madcap '93 and '94 forays into Mexico, the Fitzgerald brothers are planning an April trip to Positano, Italy. Honorary brother Jeremy Bohen is getting married on April 29, and Brian and Jim will be in attendance.
