Do not have a drop Irish blood in me but...

Your people and kind and generous.  Your country is beautiful.  I never saw so many people with red hair.  Never saw so many people with black hair with blues eyes.  I saw a many people in Ireland with green eyes.  In the USA green eyes are rare.

He agreed with music partner, Paul Brock (sitting…

Band feature: Trans-atlantic musical quartet NicGaviskey

The girls from Co. Meath met the Detroit & Baltimore boys at the Catskills Irish Arts week in upstate New York in the summer of 2009. Their coming together in a spontaneous early morning session created a rhythm and feel to the music that was infectious not only to themselves, but to all those listening.

These young musicians forged a mighty connection in those early morning hours, and what followed for two hours was four musicians playing as…

I am not really an HP fan(I love Tolkien) but if this is true, then I might be swayed to watch. We have to remember that she composed 'May it Be' for Lord of the Rings and I think it is only fitting that…
