Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
Let’s just wander around a bit this time. Ok? A little of this, a little of that. You know the drill.
PEOPLE OF THE TWO ISLANDS.
The Islands of mist and mystic blend of time.
Torn by bloodlust for religious power.
Power wedded by traders and their warrior hordes.
A dance set in new time to ease their desires.
Footsteps a heavy thud upon our graves.
These islands held in imagination’s dream trampled by the leaded heels
of malice themes.
Old before our time to find these driven wished for markers lost within

Hubby and I have returned once more to our favourite spot in West Cork, namely Allihies. This time we decided rather than make the five plus hours straight journey we'd stop overnight in Cork City so…Continue
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.
I love your music on Live Ireland 2. I am from southern Hanover, Pennsylvania near Gettysburg, PA where the largest battle in our Civil war took place.

Be forewarned. At the end of this, nothing may be clearer. Hopefully, we’ll both be better informed, but this is murky stuff. It all began years ago. Fado, fado. While having lunch with legendary Sligo fiddler, Manus McGuire, the topic of regionalization in Irish traditional music reared its head. Manus resides in East Clare. He agreed with music partner, Paul Brock (sitting…Continue
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.

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

The discussion is spreading like wildfire in the internet. Enya, the best selling Irish singer/composer is said to contribute "Through the Darkness" for the new Happy Potter film. 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…Continue
