It's been quite some time since I've visited CelticRadio.net, but I've been in the mood to listen to Celtic music lately, so I tuned in today. I've just signed up for a premium account to help support this great site.

Part of my desire to listen to the music comes from the fact that I'm currently trying to get a job in Ireland. At the beginning of December, I lost my job for the second time in 2013. For years I've wanted to move to Ireland or somewhere in the UK. I figured now might be the time to do that. I've had a few interviews via phone or Skype, and I have one promising lead for a job in Dublin right now. I can tell you that the Irish seem to be in no hurry when it come to hiring for positions, as I've been working on this one job for almost two months now.

Anyway, I live in Wake Forest NC. As as the title says, I've been a member for quite some time, but have not been active in quite some time as well. It's good to see some of the old familiar "faces" still around. I may not be that active on the forums, but I'll certainly be listening.

Thanks Paul for still providing this great service!

Welcome back Avonlea22! So good to hear from you. As it really been that long since we started this website.

Many of the old timers that first hooked up with Celtic Radio come back occasionally to say hi. Still, would love to hear from more, but I fear we have lost a great number of the older folks. I can think 4-5 people of the top of my head that have passed on.

When we started I think there was barely 10 million people in the U.S. listening to online internet radio, now that number is going to be about half of the U.S. population.

It's been challenging to stay online and will continue to be challenging with all of the regulations, rules and requirements - so we very much appreciate your support of the site as always.

Please keep us updated on your trip to Ireland and how it works out. I hear Ireland's economy is very good. Best of luck on that job interview!

If memory serves you were working on obtaining dual citizenship/Irish passport. Did you ever succeed in that effort?

Memory serves you very well. I was indeed working on that. It took an entire year to process but I do now have Irish citizenship AND an Irish passport. Makes being able to work in Ireland (or anywhere in the EU for that matter) all that much easier.

Hey, welcome back!! Always good to see a familiar face/avatar!!

Hope things work out for the job in Ireland. Get settled in real well and all of the Celtic Radio Forum will stop in for a visit!! :-)

All teasing aside, good to see you!

Now you need to work on sounding Irish. I found this: SoYouWanna speak with an Irish accent?

That's a grand article. Thanks for posting it. I was hoping my American accent would be a novelty over there. smile.gif My daughter can do a British and Irish accent pretty good, and she's 14. We watch a LOT of British TV.
