Here is the Bride poem I was going to write. It came today while trying to write something else. Go figure.
I hope you enjoy,
Telling of The Bride
I tried to write a poem, of a Bride dressed in white
To describe her beauty,
But nothing was right
I wanted it to be from the groom’s point of view,
But no words came to mind
For how she lights up the… Continue

Turns out I didn't pass the FE. Not surprised, but disappointed. Not surprised because, well, I didn't go to engineering school for six years before taking it. Disappointed because, well, I'd have been able to quit this place and go work at Townsend and d what I really like, which is study technology and law. Aw, crappers, indeed. Guess I'm going to have to go about this another way. SO... I'm going to start a B.S. degree program to run concurrently with law school. The B.S. will be in… Continue

I was working on a poem about how beautiful a bride is as she walks down the ailse. Written from the perspective of the groom as he watches her entering the room and coming toward him.
However, it took a BIG change in direction. I'm thinking this one over before I post it. I know some people come here to read my poems, and I'm not sure if I want to share this one ... yet. I'm giving it a bit of thought. Like many of my other poems, it came rushing out when I started… Continue

This is a poem I have been thinking about today.
I hope you enjoy it.
Judge Me Not
Judge me not for what I am,
But who I am inside
Love me for who I am
I have nothing to hide
Think not bad thoughts, or wish upon me
Things I can not bare
But Look within my heart and soul
And see who I am in there
I am a Mother and a friend

((This is something that I found on an older Irish webpage written by John J. O'Callaghan ))
Reason Why Gaelic Should Be Adopted as the National Language
Reasons why English is so hard to learn & why we should adopt Gaelic as our national language:
1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish… Continue

I've been inspired to write again. This is something I started yesterday and finished today. It sort of took a turn along the way as I was writting it and now the name I originally had in mind doesn't seem right. So this one will be un-named, until it reveals itself to me.
I hope you enjoy it,
I found something I can not have
Beautiful, lovely, and true
I found something I can… Continue

It was sad to learn today of Ronnie Drew's passing on Saturday. I found out from someone in the chat room during Klara McDonnell's show.
It was also mentioned that there's some Ronnie Drew and Dubliners videos on YouTube, and that made me think of the documentary From Clare to Here with Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill that I'd seen there a while ago. So I decided if it wasn't already here at LI, it should be. It's in five parts, with a total running time probably a bit over 40… Continue

Okay, okay, these things pile up. In the middle of last month's writing assignments for The Chicago Irish-American News, LiveIreland.com, Irish Music Magazine, the Public Radio show with my co-star and brilliant music interpreter, Shay Clarke, these things pile up. Last month, we told you about a single album. The unequalled, Beal Tuinne. Did you get your copy yet? So, when you get 500 albums sent to you every year, guess what happens? They pile up. Brace yourself, Bridgid, here they all come… Continue

A little somthing I wrote for someone special. It's not that good, but I thought I would share it anyway. I may even show it to them one day.
I hope you like it,
Dreaming of You
I awoke to the moon and thoughts of you,
Flooding my room and dreams
They both shine brightly within me
Hearing your voice I tremble
Yet find a clam
That eases me
I look forward… Continue

I hadn't planned on doing anything so tourist-y, but we couldn't get to Kinsale and we found ourselves in Blarney--or rather, in a B&B looking out over Blarney town--and the next morning it just made sense to stop and see one of the most famous sites in Ireland. And since there was practically no line when we got to the top of the ruins....The things I remember most of that place was hearing the church bells peal out over the town (Lady's Day in Harvest time, after all) and the fairytale… Continue

Well, we don't have it recorded yet, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. Here is the song Tammy and I wrote together. We are still working out the tune a little, but it is starting to sound really good. I hope you enjoy the lyrics.
It's another day with the sun sinking low
It's another night that you don't have a place to go
Well baby I could always make you smile
So come and stay with me awhile
Friendship was the… Continue

It is lightyears away from being done, I just like it enough so far to have posted it for everyone to see. It's out of order, and not really a 'song' yet, but I think it's coming along...
