Hello again Halfelf! I am the moderator over in the Celtic Languages forum. Have you been in there yet? There are several good threads there dealing with Irish Gaelic. I am learning Scottish Gaelic, so I'm afriaid I wouldn't be much help. But I'm sure if you ask some questions over there you'll most likely find someone willing to help!

And as I said in my pm, Welcome to CelticRadio!

I haven't actually ventured into the Ireland forum, yet. You probably know me as the Welsh enthusiast. However, I am eager to discover more of our Goedelic neighbours. I have a few Irish friends and serve many Irish people in the shop I work in and all tell me how similar our two beautiful and ancient lands are.
I sometimes feel that Ireland and Wales are the only Celtic nations to have completely retained their Celtic nationhood. I never feel so at peace and in awe of Celtic majesty and mystery as when I am Ireland and Wales.
I would love to speak Irish Gaelic and often listen to Radio na Gael (spelling?). Shhhh, do not tell the Scots Gaels, but I prefer Irish Gaelic and think it is the most beautiful language in the world alongside Welsh. However, my roots and loyalties are with Scotland and therefore Scots Gaelic is of a higher priority.

My name is MaggieCarroll, or at least when I am caught!

I was born in Baltimore -
Maryland, not Ireland wink.gif
But raised a Coal Cracker -
In the anthracite coal region of Pennsylvania
Which to most of us Irish
Is simply another county in Ireland rolleyes.gif

Ah, but I should have been born in the Olde Sod
For that is where my heart lies always
My dream?
To live in Ireland, of course
The foot of the Wicklow Mountains
Or maybe Donegal...

My family let in a few other ethnic groups biggrin.gif
Over the years, but my Gram never let us
Forget we were Irish
Come from Carroll, Devlin, and Creary stock
From the Irish midlands
And the north of Ireland

I am a writer, a poet, a singer note.gif
Suppose a bard of sorts
For my themes somehow all turn out
To have something to do with the Irish
Do some Irish step dancin' now and then
A wee bit of acting then and now
I belong to the LAOH, my husband Pat to the AOH
Propagators of the Irish culture in Amerikay...

In my day job, I have a master's in nursing
It has been payin' the bills for 30 years
For the last six, I have been a certified school nurse

Summers off!

It's when I do a lot of research for my novels

My first novel, the Pipes Are Calling
Will be published Spring of 2007
It is a historical fantasy that takes place
Both in Ireland
And "Molly Maguire" Country - the coal banks of County Schuylkill
(Pennsylvania, that 'tis!)

Any history buffs out there familiar with the miners known as the Molly Maguires?


--------------------
Ni'i aon tintea'n mar do thintea'n fe'in
There is no fireplace like your own fireplace


O come back to Ireland! Come back with me!
Come back to the green rollin' hills and the sea
Come back to the music! Come back to the dance!
O come back to Ireland! Come back with me!

I have not spent much time here, but I should. There is so much about Ireland I do not know.

My quest to learn about Ireland never ends. I hope to quench some of that through this board.

lawrence50, it's great to have you here with the ones whose hearts and dreams belong to Ireland. I know you must be getting really excited with your upcoming trip to the Emerald Isle. I've never been, but hope too one day! I guess to do that I'll have to get selfish and just do it! When your children and grandchildren need you, it's hard to say no. Especially the grandbabies! biggrin.gif
Before you know it, it will be time to board your plane and take off. I have a dr. friend that went to Ireland with a group and they did contra dancing. He did bring me back a piece of Irish Linen., which I have in safe keeping. Him and his family moved to Conn. and I haven't talked to him in ages.
Have fun and if you have any questions, maybe someone here can answer them as best they can. A Shrule Egan is someone that can tell you quite a bit about that awesome country.
