    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...

    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

    Being Irish Is Something to Be Proud of

    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 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.

    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.
