    So i recently found out my family COULD have

    Irish Ancestry, or atleast, i assume, because my surname is "Coffie" And i've found alot of people with the same surname and that were also born in Ireland, any ideas if they are/were family of mine?

    An Irishman's Philosophy

    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...

    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...

    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.
