A Northern Ireland Welcome - for Ohio Family

In your US passport it states where you were born, and mine states Ireland. Whenever I've come through Immigration whether it be Dublin, Shannon or Belfast, the Immigration Officer always says "Welcome Home."  I want to cry and I've just gotten there! I've had some wonderful warm welcomes over the years but few people have experienced the welcome given by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board this Christmas to the Monroe Family from Ohio.

They won a contest sponsored by the NITB  and when they arrived into George Best Belfast City Airport not only were Roisin Monroe and her children Brandon and Kaeli Ann greeted by their family but they were welcomed by a flash mob - the Belfast Community Gospel Choir dressed as travelers, airport staff and flight crew.  The choir bust into an incredible rendition of “Joy to the World". What a wonderful Welcome Home and what a great start to a family reunion and Christmas.
