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...
being Irish. Apparently my looks are pretty typical Irish and I know there was the Irish potato famine. That's pretty much the limit of my knowledge. I've always had a strange fascination with Ireland, though. Lordy, do I want to go there so bad. I want go there for my honeymoon...
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...
for the giro d'italia cycle race (pink is the official colour of the race) which is rocking up on Irish shores on Friday until Sunday this week. Check the race out on TV or the web.. there will be some great shots of the countryside and pink sheep too..
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...
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...
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...
my dad's parents were born in Ireland but moved to America. And my dad's grandparents were born in Ireland, my mom was born in Aruba and i was born in the Netherlands, lol. Do i have 100% Irish heritage or 50%? still trying to sort that out.
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...
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 :)

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...
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...
for me, because i am used to speaking dutch all the time. But i suppose i can speak this sentence in real.
Dia dhuit, Shaun is ahm dohm. Cad is ainm dhuit?
If i'm right that means= Hello, my name is Shaun. What's your name?
Further i'm still struggling to remember the rest...
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!
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.
My features always have people guessing that I'm Italian, Greek, or Hispanic etc.. The list of nationalities people have guessed me to be goes on and on.
I'm mostly Irish yet I've only had very few people guess that about me. I have a good friend who is Bosnian and her family...
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.
