    The Legend Of The Claddagh Ring

    The story of the Claddagh Ring began about five centuries ago in the fishing village of Claddagh, just outside the city of Galway. Almost every man in the village was a fisherman, and they would go to sea everyday to fish for food for their families and to sell to other villagers...

    An Irishman's Philosophy

    In life, there are only two things to worry about— Either you are well or you are sick. If you are well, there is nothing to worry about, But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about— Either you will get well or you will die. If you get well...

    I was born in Ireland

    and lived there until I was sixteen. My family had to move to the U.S. for my dads work. As soon as I am done with school I am moving back there. I miss it so much.

    I was born in limerick.

    Both of my parents are citizens them selves( or at least I think anyway ) I never actually traveled out of Ireland before in my life. I have always wanted to see the rest of the world. I find foreign cultures so interesting. Can't wait to meet new people here.

    Never before were there

    so many Irish people in Windsor Castle at the same time, dining with the Queen of England. 160 people at the same table! Ireland has come SO very far. We are now equals, and recognised as such. It is surely a major coup. I sincerely hope the few extremists will stop.

    ERIN Go Bragh!

    I am part Irish and to look at me my features give me away.  I am very fair with the greenish blue eyes etc.  I am proud of my Irish ancestors with the many sacrifices they made so that I can be called "Ameican" today.  I visited Ireland...

    I'm not Irish. I wish I was Irish.

    :/ my brother is half Irish. I also find Ireland so beautiful that I want to go there on my honeymoon whenever I get married xD if it's with the boyfriend I have now, it'll be pretty interesting since he is Irish, but he wasn't born there, so he doesn't have the cool sexy accent...
