I have a friend who is Welsh so was looking at some annual traditions we could start and have some fun with an this sounded like a perfect idea!

http://www.wales.com/mari-lwyd


Mari Lwyd

The Mari Lwyd (the Grey Mare) is a pre-Christian tradition said to bring good luck.

People made a horse figure from a horse’s skull, with decorative ears and eyes attached. They adorned it with colourful reins, bells, and ribbons and wrapped it with a white sheet that is carried around on a pole.

The Mari Lwyd and its party would go door-to-door, singing and challenging the families inside to a battle of rhyming insults in Welsh. At the end of the battle of wits (known as pwnco) the group would be invited into the house for refreshments.

This old tradition died out in many parts of Wales, but some parts still act it out and every December you can see it at the St Fagans: National History Museum(link is external). Each January several Maris from different regions gathers in Chepstow for the Chepstow Wassail Lwyd(link is external).

For lots more images of Mari Lwyd, check out the Mari Lwyd Flickr group(link is external).

I am taking a trip next year and was thinking about adding this to my adventures, has anyone ever made the trip?

Thanks.


https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/skellig-michael


Skellig Michael is a remote, precipitous, rocky island situated eight miles from the coast of County Kerry, Ireland. It is the larger of two jagged islands that jut out from the swell of the Atlantic Ocean and thrust 230 meters straight up.

Legends tell of the importance of the islands in prehistoric, pagan times, but the known history of Skellig Michael begins when a monastery was founded near the summit in the middle of the 7th century. Consisting of distinctive ‘beehive’ stone huts clustered around an oratory and a tiny vegetable garden, this was truly a place of solitude for the few monks who lived here, only accessible by climbing 600 stone steps up the cliff. Perched on the higher, southern peak of the island is another oratory, intended for a single monk seeking true isolation amongst the cathedral-like rocky spires.

The monastic peace was shattered in the 9th century when a number of Viking raids threatened the very existence of this tiny community. But despite this, the monastery survived up until the 12th century when the monks abandoned the island and moved to the mainland.

The monastery itself is remarkably well preserved, with daily boatloads of visitors from the mainland making the precarious leap to the small harbor at the bottom of the cliff. The extreme inaccessibility and remote location of these buildings have meant that just a trickle of tourists have visited the site, thus minimizing the erosion of the paved steps and terraces.

The smaller of the two islands, Little Skellig, is no less dramatic. Situated a little closer to the shore, the island is Ireland’s largest Gannet colony, with over 20,000 breeding pairs.

The island, once relatively little known, was thrust into fame when the precarious steps, cliffs and beehive houses at the top were used as the setting for Luke Skywalker’s isolated hideaway at the end of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and, again in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The island can expect a steady stream of Jedi carrying lightsabers up the winding path.

I have tried to create 2 clans now, and they show up briefly in the Clans listing and then get deleted. I will wait until I hear from the game developers before I try again. I assume that this feature is not working.

Thanks,

Squire

Well it looks like the goal was achieved this year congratulations. I had previously renewed my membership and purchased the pub cookbook during the fundraiser. Will the packaged items still be available to purchase or was that for the fundraiser only? Great Job and a wonderful radio station!

Thank you.

So I wanted to try and recruit a few more workers just to test the difference in output and score. I first tried 100,000 gold and got nothing so I bumped it up to 1,000,000 and figured I may get 100 workers or so but I got nothing. I decided to try 5,000,000 and got 40,000+ workers which was completely shocking. It seems there is no formula for this recruiting workers feature and there is no way to get rid of workers either so perhaps down the road it may be a good idea to scale the recruitment and have an ability to banish workers from your kingdom if necessary. If they made a bigger impact on your resources it would be worth it but doesn't seem to really matter if you have 3 or 3000 working.

Just some thoughts for when you are doing your upgrades to the game.

Thanks.

If you were a fan of the song Zombie the video below was uploaded by the very talented Jenny Ní Ruiséil and is sang in the Irish language of Gaeilge. A beautiful version even if you don't speak the language.

https://www.irishcentral.com/culture/entert...o-riordan-death

Here are the lyrics for the song in Gaeilge:

Cinn crochta (go)(h)ísle, allta
Leanbh caillte céasta
Is go fíochmhar, (i)’dtost na hoíche
‘A chiúnagh óg ‘s aosta

Ach a chroí, ní mo bhrí
Ní mo chlann, nó cuimhní
‘Tá ag troid, nó ag crith, iad in aighneas

Leis na tancanna lán,
Lán is dallta, le gráin
I do cheann, smaointe ann, bíonn siad scantraithe

I do cheann, i do cheann,
Scantraithe, scantraithe scantraithe
Céard ‘tá 'do cheann, i do cheann
Scantraithe, scantraithe, scantraithe

Croí máithre sáite báite,
cráite leis an mbuairt seo
Nuair is fíochmha(i)r(e) tost ná aoibh
Is éasca ‘n phian a thabhairt leat

Mar an ‘gcéanna, ón bhliain
A chailleadh, réabhlóidí
‘Siad ag troid, iad ag crith iad ag fulaingt

Lena gcroíthe comh lán,
Iad comh lán, lena bhfonn
I do cheann i do cheann, fós in aighneas

I do cheann, cuimhní ann
Scantraithe, scantraithe,
Céard ‘tá ‘do cheann, i do cheann
Scantraithe, scantraithe,...

I am curious if there are any Hurling fans here, I found out about this fast paced tough sport while I was in Dublin a couple years ago. I wasn't able to attend a match but had fun watching in the pub and talking to local fans. Maybe we can introduce a few more people to this great sport or hear from others who know the sport and can teach us a little more. It used to be easier to stream matches online but haven't found a very easy way to watch any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here is a clip of highlights from 2017:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BFkJUdNyCA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At-QFDsx0Hk

Hurling (Irish: iománaíocht, iomáint) is an outdoor team game of ancient Gaelic and Irish origin and is the fastest field sport in the world[citation needed]. It is administered by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). The game has prehistoric origins, and has been played for 3,000 years. One of Ireland's native Gaelic games, it shares a number of features with Gaelic football, such as the field and goals, the number of players, and much terminology. There is a similar game for women called camogie (camógaíocht). It shares a common Gaelic root with the sport of shinty (camanachd), which is played predominantly in Scotland.

The objective of the game is for players to use a wooden stick called a hurley (in Irish a camán, pronounced /ˈkæmən/ or /kəˈmɔːn/) to hit a small ball called a sliotar /ˈʃlɪtər/ between the opponents' goalposts either over the crossbar for one point, or under the crossbar into a net guarded by a goalkeeper for one goal, which is equivalent to three points. The sliotar can be caught in the hand and carried for not more than four steps, struck in the air, or struck on the ground with the hurley. It can be kicked, or slapped with an open hand (the hand pass) for short-range passing. A player who wants to carry the ball for more than four steps has to bounce or balance the sliotar on the end of the stick, and the ball can only be handled twice while in his possession.

Provided that a player has at least one foot on the ground, a player may make a shoulder to shoulder charge on an opponent:
1.who is in possession of the ball, or
2.who is playing the ball, or
3.when both players are moving in the direction of the ball to play it.

No protective padding is worn by players. A plastic protective helmet with a faceguard is mandatory for all age groups, including senior level, as of 2010. The game has been described as "a bastion of humility", with player names absent from jerseys and a player's number decided by his position on the field.[1]

Hurling is played throughout the world, and is popular among members of the Irish diaspora in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina, and South Korea. In many parts of Ireland, however, hurling is a fixture of life.[1] It has featured regularly in art forms such as film, music and literature. The final of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was listed in second place by CNN in its "10 sporting events you have to see live", after the Olympic Games and ahead of both the FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Football Championship.[2] After covering the 1959 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final between Kilkenny and Waterford for BBC Television, English commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme was moved to describe hurling as his second favorite sport in the world after his first love, football.[3] In 2007, Forbes magazine described the media attention and population multiplication of Thurles town ahead of one of the game's annual provincial hurling finals as being "the rough equivalent of 30 million Americans watching a regional lacrosse game".

I hope you find this interesting!
