MyLiveIreland member, Rebecca Gresty
and our music writer Bill Margeson recently made contact in our chat site. Rebecca had a demo of her voice up, and Bill heard it. He loved it! He and Rebecca made contact. Bill then asked for the four-cut demo in cd format, and this week played one of the cuts on his American Public Radio programme based out of Chicago! Bill loves her voice so much that he stated that he would play… Continue

Un premier cas de la maladie de la langue bleue a été détecté en Irlande du Nord sur une vache laitière importée des Pays-Bas, a annoncé vendredi la secrétaire d'Etat nord-irlandaise à l'Agriculture, Michelle Gildernew.
Cette vache faisait partie d'un troupeau de 21 génisses acheminées en janvier vers une ferme du comté d'Antrim, dans le nord-est de l'Irlande du Nord. Elle a été abattue jeudi et une zone de surveillance a été mise en place autour… Continue

We have been getting lots of snow lately, here in Wisconsin. And just a much complaining. But I wonder how many people know that the snow is good for the environment. When it melts is seeps into teh ground and fields, getting the crops started. Excess runs into the rivers and lakes, which many are low these days.
Many farmers need it to start the crops. Crops that don't get a good start can drown in the spring rains. Many lakes and rivers are low to the point you can't even lauch a… Continue

So this may be a dumb or obvious question, but is there a good list for irish music performances? I'd love to see who is playing in my area.

I be doing? Well, I should
be editing/rewriting my massive-research-essay-project analysis-thing . . . however, I've somehow convinced myself that my last hour before my brain reboots would be better spent blogging and making my mark on my LiveIreland page that I've sadly been neglecting lately. School keeps me plenty busy, but my hobbies and obsessions make sure to never let me have any down time, which is fine since I'm not to fond of my… Continue

As most of you know our dear friend Leven from Live Ireland. She and her son received some tragic news this past week. Steven's father passed away on February 5, 2008. She asked me to let her dearest friends know. I know that most of you have known Leven for a few years now and she has become like a sister to me. This is a difficult time for her so please take the time to offer your condolences and your prayers would be appreciated. I have included a link to the Funeral Home which posts… Continue

It is so beautiful
Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
When it's one need
In the night
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Nicolas is always right, and even if sometimes he is wrong, it is that he is right to be wrong
(Not sure if it 's correct)

Now I am going ti study celtic dances in Moscow - jigs, reels etc.
It would be my second experience in this area of life.
And what kind of music could you recommend me (groupes, folk singers, fiddlers, etc..)
Possible, De Dannan..

This is a question that has been very illusive to me. I have traveled to Roundstone IE after watching the movie "The Matchmaker" and one of my quest was to understand or find "trevor's hole" mentioned in the movie. My search on the internet has come up with only gay porn sites and I'm sure this is not the "reference" mentioned in this great film. Can Anyone help me understand and/or find this geographical or even mythical location?

Most regular chatters at LI know that I can't access LI from my workplace... but hey, thats not a problem today. I am at a conference work send me to and at least their WiFi lets me get here! :)

A year ago I was in Hawaii, wandering through a rainforest, standing on top of a dormant volcano and running around the beach with a swimsuit model. Some of the best times of my life. Met people from all over the world there. This was to be the beginning of my travels and adventures (and Ireland was high on my next destination list)...
Things did not work out that way over the year. The friend whose couch I crashed on in Hawaii has since moved back to the mainland. I quit a job I hated… Continue
