Emerald green beyond the foam,
Awakening sweet memories,

The Prodigals [03 Nov 2008|09:18pm]

Hey! I don't know if anybody in here has seen the movie Pride and Glory - or is planning to - but  it features music from this amazing Irish band, The Prodigals. At first I didn't know who they were, just that they sounded like The Pogues, but I asked around on some other communities and found out that the songs in the movie are called "The Opening Reel" and "Bunch of Red Roses." I hear that The Prodigals are kind of big in New York. They also have an album coming out soon.

Oh, and you can download the tracks I mentioned here and here.

Ireland in October [13 Jan 2008|05:44pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Greetings to everyone either in Ireland, or wishing they were there.  

My mom and I are going to Ireland in October for 7 days.  The plan is to spend a day or two in Dublin, a day or two in Cork and then... I have no idea.  We have some time to figure all that stuff out.  The part I need help with, is finding lodging.  I've searched online but I've been unable to find a web site and/or book that tells me things like how far the hotel/b&b/whatever is away from the places you want to be close to.  I've found some great places to stay at, but for all I know they could be 10 miles away from the area's we want to explore.  If anyone has found such a website or book, I'd love to know about it!  This will be in early October.  I want to go when the traveling season is over, but I also want to go when we won't freeze various appendages off.  Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks!

If you're in the Toronto area, and you're into standing in a cold arena cheering for a local hockey team, there's an Irish team playing in the CMHL, Dec. 27 & 28.

Behind the cut you'll find a screen cap of an email sent out by Audible.com which states that the Irish Literary Tradition is weak, and they suggest everyone listen to three tales of Irish life: in the form of three stories of alcoholics.

Isn't it funny how it's not ok to stereotype any other ethnic group, but it's ok to paint the Irish as nothing but drunks?

Power Sharing agreement reached over Northern Ireland.

Sinn Fein leaders would be required first to signal the party's abandonment of its decades-old opposition to the Northern Ireland police. Ian Paisley, in exchange, would order his Democratic Unionist party to elect himself and a senior Sinn Fein figure to be joint leaders of Northern Ireland's new administration.

This would happen Nov. 24, the date that Britain and Ireland long billed as the deadline for power-sharing to resume.

Under the new plan, however, Paisley and Sinn Fein's nominee — most likely deputy leader Martin McGuinness — would not receive any powers until March 26. The delay, Blair said, would allow Paisley's Protestant followers to be able to test whether Sinn Fein was truly supporting the police.
