Joined Crystal Travel:

Before moving to Boston in the 1960s, I had already left Galway to drive a bus in London. I called these two places home before moving to America and they remain two of my favorite places.

I worked with Aer Lingus at Logan Airport from 1965 until 1985 when I opened Crystal Travel with my wife Teresa.

It's been a very quick 50 years in the travel industry!

My work has allowed me to travel a lot over the years and I particularly enjoyed Paris,Amsterdam and Dubrovnik. The historic buildings and old wall in Dubrovnik grab your attention immediately, and added to the weather, climate and people, it makes for a really beautiful city.

After so long at Aer Lingus, I had met a lot of people on my travels and the desire was strong to own a travel agency to help others to travel.

Crystal Travel has been my exclusive travel agent for more than ten years. My travels, both personal and business, include considerable domestic and international travel throughout five continents. I have found the professionals at Crystal Travel, particularly Sean Kelly, to be extremely efficient, responsive, courteous and very knowledgeable about air fares, ticketing, hotel rates and bookings.

As a member of the O'Connell trip to Ireland, I wanted to thank you for a terrific itinerary. We all thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful accommodations, the bus, our driver and everything you put together for us. Even the weather was on our side - just one rainy day! We are ever grateful for your work.
