Beannachtam na Feile Padraig! 
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 
and Happy Ryan New Year!

Now, on to much less important things: We do certainly hope you enjoyed our AWE21 in pdf (pretty darn funny) or via the website annual-wee-epistle.com and referred to it frequently for fun things you too can do to entertain yerselves without risk of winning a Darwin Award, but that’s the distant past. For the more recent past, this year’s Annual Wee Epistle 22 (AWE 22) recounts and regales for you long-time AWEsome readers the comings and goings, stayings and sailings, and eatings and drinkings of our still wee-band (no grandchildren yet -- hint, hint) of Ameri-Irish known in some way shape or form since 1699 BC as the Ryans (descendants of Maoil Riagháin -- ok TMI). Those of you so annually accosted will already be aware here on this Ryan New Year’s Eve of RY22 (Ryan Year 2022) that ‘tis our tradition, custom, and courtesy at this festive time to greet you with full-throated Celtic clarity on this happy day!

[I would note here that those playing along at home all year via FaceBook will notice a significant amount of repetition – sorry for that but since every story requires only a minimum 10% truth you may find some entertaining variations TBTG]
