    Family History

    My roots (as I have been told) are from there. From the pictures and videos I have seen, this is one place I must plan to visit. (if only i had the cashola!) Ah, perhaps someday. I will make plans. I am in the process of tracing my family history and see what I can come up with.

    I would love to visit Ireland.

    It is so gorgeous, it has a rich culture and not to mention the accents are so cool. But I would want to stay for a little while instead of just a few days or a week. I am contemplating looking into to travel abroad or homestay programs

    I met an Irish guy on a trip a few years back.

    .. Since then I've associated Ireland with him. Sexy, fun, tipsy, and full of humor. I've felt pulled towards Ireland ever since.

    She Calls To Me

    When I imagine my trips to Ireland I feel peace, relaxation and a sense of home coming even though I've never been there. I picture myself visiting sheep dotted hill partitioned by stone walls. I see in my mind's eye crumbling castle ruins, homey pubs, small towns and tiny...

    I Love Irish Men!

    There are about 250 Irish living in an apartment complex next to mine, they all work for Intel and so far I've dated 3 of them.  There's gotta be one that works out so we can go to Ireland together. Love the accents, even better if they speak Irish Gaelic, and say cute things...

    It's Where My Heart Is.

    I have always felt connected to my heritage ever since I was very young. I am half Irish and supposedly half German but I feel so much more connected to my Irish heritage than anything else. I am enthralled by the history of the country. I have a lot of Irish...

    I'f Love to Visit Ireland

    If I had a chance to visit anywhere in the world, it would be Ireland. It's beautiful there (based on many pictures I have seen), and I'd love to take a walking tour of the countryside where the castles are. It's frequently rainy there also and that makes it even more...

    I would love to go to Dublin,

    Ireland. One of my favourite movies is called, "PS. I Iove you" and it is set in Ireland. I'd love to see the mountains in Wicklow. Has anyone been there? I'd love to see St. Anne's Park and the castles. If I go to Dublin, what one thing must I see or do?
