    I Love Being Irish!

        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 Harp That Once Through Tara's Halls by

    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...

    I don't have the awesome accent,

    but I do have Irish ancestry. I actually went to Ireland back in 2008 with my family, and we visited the (unbelievably) small town where my great great grandmother lived! It was awesome! :D

    Walking all the day near tall towers

    My grandpa was 100% Irish Catholic

    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.

    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.
