March 13, 1977 by Georgia Lewis. His
ranch at Tule Springs is now
the Floyd Lamb Park in Las Vegas,
I was especially excited when my granddaughter began to study Irish dance. She's very good at it and I love to watch her perform. This weekend she is attending a Celtic "feis" (pronounced "fesh") in Las Vegas as part of a large Celtic Society celebration. She and her dad were very interested in the place in which they are performing. It is a park made from an old ranch established by none other than Bert Nay, my great-uncle! It's wonderful to have those Irish roots come full circle back to the Nays again. I'm sure Bert and Becky Nay would be excited to have the Irish feis take place on their old ranch. And I believe Bert's triple great grandpa William McNee and wife Mary Brownley are proud of their little descendant dancing her Irish jigs tomorrow. We all wish you the best, sweet girl.
