Giant's Causeway

Saugeen Shores Constable Doug Lein and wife, Kathy, recently had reason to celebrate when they had the opportunity to visit Northern Ireland, the home of their ancestors.  Lein was selected as a 'Volunteer Ambassador to the recent World Police and Fire Games (WPFG) and wife, Kathy accompanied him.

Lein's mother was born in Ballymena, Northern Ireland and Kathy's grandparents emigrated from Newcastle to Canada during the infamous potato famine.

The Leins travelled to Belfast, Northern Island, as part of the World Police and Fire Games held in August.  While there, they had the chance to see some of the countryside surrounding Belfast, including the geological wonder of the world, the Giant's Causeway.

"It was absolutely amazing," says Kathy Lein, "and, for me, it was a highlight of our trip."  Lein adds that she was very surprised at how small Northern Ireland actually is. "While Doug was busy volunteering, I took the opportunity to tour some of Belfast and surrounding countryside."
