Your hosts, Willie and Kathleen Ryan, welcome you.
Willie hails from the
town of Cahir, County Tipperary, Ireland and has lived
in Wellington since 1967. Willie is a retired professional orchestral
musician and was a member of the New Zealand Symphony
Orchestra (horn section) from 1968 to 2004. Willie is very proud of his
Irish heritage. He is a great conversationalist and
enjoys a chat with our guests.
Kathleen is a born and
bred New Zealander, of Dutch and English/Scottish background
who has lived in Wellington most of her life. A school
teacher by profession, Kathleen loves literature, Irish
dancing and the arts.
They have five grown
up children who are working in New Zealand and overseas, pursuing careers in music,
Irish dancing, law, and internal audit.
Your hosts love
their city and know it inside out - they're happy
to advise on places of interest, and assist with bookings
for day trips and tours.
