Irish Pirate Queen

From hither and hence hailed the great Irish Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley! 

WELCOME to my web page! I hope I figure out how to do this although just how hard can it be nowadays? 

I lost my Pirate Queen spiel! Oy vey!

I am an ancestor of the great Irish Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley who hailed from Clare Island, County Mayo where my paternal grandfather was born. 

A spunky Grace sailed the high seas and took on the likes of no less than the infamous Queen Elizabeth of England, daughter of the gravely misogynistic Henry VIII.

I am inclined to think that I inherited my rebellious streak from Grace- perhaps for a lack of a better explanation and a rather stylish one at that!
