julie was an incredible singer. she was one of my biggest twelve year old crushes. me da used to play backing her. and even though her husband bobby troupe was on piano and they were obviously one of the more loving, and perfect couples in the history of love, i was twelve, she was nice to me, and beautiful.

i. was. in. love.

da was an irish volunteer for the RAF who trained in the white mountains before heading off to burma to fly cargo (no way were the brits going to trust irish boys with bombers). they met, they fell in love, they got married in two months, da went to war and came back.
