:/ 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...
and proud of it. He always had something on that reminded him of home. Since he died, I feel like my family has forgotten his roots. I remember him when I wear my Celtic ring and play Irish tunes on my saxophone.
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 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...
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 :)
in north western France, where my mother was from, I am Irish raised. We lived in Cork, in the south of Ireland. My father Seamus works for a cruise line, as ships captain, my mother has her own business.
I went to primary school in Cork, and we went to church not far from...
Dublin 28th June 1963
"The 13th day of December, 1862, will be a day long remembered in American history. At Fredericksburg, Va., thousands of men fought and died on one of the bloodiest battlefields of the American Civil War. One of the most brilliant stories of that...
my heratage is all IrishI feel strongly for both countries it is such a pity that they politically do not see eye to eye,and i fear never will.I have no intention o going down those well trodden roads as to why there is friction between my two countries,least to say i fear 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...
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...

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...
she came to North America from Northern Ireland many years ago, though only by a quarter I considered myself British, or more aptly Northern Irish, however my mother always corrected me. When I started looking into my citizenship options in Britain she asked me a simple...
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...
I'm a 15 year old crossdresser. I first started crossdressing when i was 14. I don't know how I got into it. I guess one day i wanted to try on my moms panties. I have taken her clothes before and worn them when she wasn't home. I would also sneak into her draw and grab her...
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.
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.
and natural disaster.
The soldiers and refuges
Who were forced to set sail on ships
For other lands and became known as The Wild Geese
Through oppression and famine they created a beautiful dream
"Freedom for Everyone"
(Written on The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey Bottle)
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...
Irish poet Thomas Moore 1779-1852
The soul of music shed,
Now hangs as mute on Tara’s walls
As if that soul were fled.
So sleeps the pride of former days,
So glory’s thrill is o’er,
And hearts that once beat high for praise,
Now feel that pulse no more!
No more to...
where falcons build their nests
Silver wings they fly,
They know the call for freedom in their breasts,
Saw Black Head against the sky
Where twisted rocks they run down to the sea
Living on your western shore,
Saw summer sun sets, I asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic Sea...
