I've never been to Ireland. Unfortunately! I built my own "Irish mythology" through what I learned and know, what I read, what I feel and what I like. With a little help of that passionating irish music. Things I know may be wrong or biased, but my feelings are true - hey... after all, it's my own mythology :-) - and I love the Ireland I feel.
I don't know if I'll have the chance (the luck) to go there one day. Although I'm nearly 60, I feel young - I AM young (it took me a lot of practice :-) ) - and young enough (anyway) to keep hope. But I'm nearly 60, am I not?
I subscribed to liveIreland to have the opportunity to share my feelings with people who, like me, never visited Ireland, and confront my dreams to reality through discussions with Irish people. Would many (or, at least, some) of you subscribers to liveIreland be my keyboardpals or/and my mentors? ;-)
