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...
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...
if you can get past the economic propaganda...!
Though it was designed for St Patrick's Day for embassy and business interests... parts are still cool...

Growing up I never really thought about what it meant to be Irish. I lived in a border town, on the Northern side, and you were either Irish or British, according to what your parents had told you. It was a difficult time for everyone up there back then, we were poor and afraid...

My family on my dads side are all born in ireland. My dad's 90% Irish i think.
I'm born in Europe, and my mom's side is from surname (Aruba), but i don't notice anything ''Surname'' about me.
Anyone got a idea how much percentage irish i am?
I hail from the Connolly Clan. My great great grandfather was thrown out of Ireland for horse stealing joined the Popes army then immigrated to the States. He landed in Montana where the Connolly's got into saddle making and still live to this day.
If you're lucky...
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...
Like the ever rolling sea
Feet tread wave and land
Where water and skyline meet
Clasping vast majestic hands
As bubbling foam greets the risk
And feet find better ground
Moments grasped a mist
Are mingled in...

"... But since it falls unto my lot
that I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
good night and joy be with you all".
people in this group. I was born and have lived in Ireland my whole life and before I have tried to tell people that if you weren't like me, you couldn't declare yourself irish. Before I thought this group was people who were solely Irish. I was so narrow minded. Now I want to...
The Pooka - The Pooka is a certain type of fairy - one bent on creating havoc in the mortal world. He takes the shape of a black horse. The Pooka appeared at night across rural Ireland and the seaboard. On a good day, the Pooka would cause destruction on a farm - tearing down...
To be exact.....Black Irish. There is some controversy as to whether there is such a thing.....I am proof. I have studied long hours and gone to Ireland tracing my family tree. The Spanish Armada did indeed invade Eire and were overtaken by the...
My great- grandfather came to America, as an IRA member, in order to escape being hung by the British. My great-grandmother, his wife, came to America as an orphan. They raised a family in the Bronx, until he commit suicide. I am now a third generation American...
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.
I live in Australia now but i'm very proud of being Irish. I love our wit and our capacity for the craic. I love how friendly we are, how easy it is to chat with an Irish person. I love how we seek out the absurd and how we love a 'character'! Daniel Day-Lewis was once asked why...
The Banshee - The bean-sidhe (woman of the fairy) is a spirit sent to warn a person of their death. She has a number of forms but my favourite would be the washer woman guise, where she is seen washing the bloodstained clothes of the person who is about to die or I like the one...
How do u stop thinking about some one??
He seems so happy with her.... He left his family for her.... Just thrown aside after 14yrs of our lives together.... Why do men cheat? Rather then jus discuss if there are not happy....
two Irishmen walk into a pet shop. Right away they go to the bird section and Sean says to Paddy; “Dat”s Dem”. The shopkeeper comes over and asks if he can help.
“Yeah, we”ll take four of dem dere budgies in dat cage op dere”, says Mick, “Put dem in a pepper bag...
This is why i have red hair naturally :) I love being Irish. It makes me happy to learn more about my heritage. There is still much more i wanna know. If anyone can tell me more about the Harper family in Ireland it would be appreciated :)
- You're still afraid of the wooden spoon.
- You come home from the beach scalded and finally realise that the Factor 50 everyone was talking about wasn't a nightclub.
- You have the craic at a funeral which leads to a session, provided the deceased got a "good age".
- You drink...
Catholic family, and they're awesome! My grandma's side is from Southern Ireland, and my grandfather's side is from Dublin. I've never been to Ireland, but I might go soon. I think it looks absolutely breathtaking there!
