There’s nothing like home sweet home
However much you travel, home will always be with you

If you are ever thinking of writing a book about homesickness, you might read a letter that appeared in the Cork Evening Echo.
It read as follows: "I was often told that the people in the Southside are cold. Now, since I got married, I know it. Every morning I look towards Blackpool and I cry."
The remarkable aspect of this letter was that it wasn't a case of 'name and address with the editor' -- the girl gave her full name and address. Blackpool was only a few miles away, but that didn't matter.
