Moville is a small tourist town, situated on the west bank of Lough Foyle and the eastern edge of the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula, near the northernmost point in Ireland. Across Lough Foyle lies Northern Ireland, with the city of Derry being about 30 km south of Moville. While most of our days are spent in Moville, we do hop on a bus fairly regularly and wander around in a different town, thus the blog name, Somewhere in Ireland.

mary had a little lamb
I don’t know if Mary’s lamb was named Larry but Larry made his appearance in the Moville library on March 8th to meet some students from the local school. He was a big hit with the kids. Larry is happy to celebrate the 187th anniversary today of Mary Had A Little Lamb nursery rhyme.
It was first published by the Boston publishing firm Marsh, Capen & Lyon, as an original poem by Sarah Josepha Hale on May 24, 1830 which makes it 187 years old today. Courtesy of Wikipedia
