If I never get to Ireland.

If I never get to Ireland I hope the good Lord lets my soul fly over the home of my ancestors on

the way to heaven.

Slàinte (Santé !)

Qui est déjà allé en Irlande connait l’importance de la marque Guinness. C’est LA marque irlandaise emblématique, je crois qu’on peut même dire  un symbole de l’Irlande. C’est en 1759 que l’histoire commence. C’est à cette date qu’Arthur Guinness signe un bail lui assurant la jouissance de la célèbre…

Margeson on the Music October 2011

Well, here we go. Winter is coming. But here are five albums to keep you warm and cozy. 

First up is the great, Seamus Begley on button box and vocals, joined by Tim Edey on guitar. The name of the album is Disgrace Notes. We are late to the dance on this one, but the important thing is that we arrived. There are few, if any, male singers we love more in Irish music than…

"What is this I feel......"

I wrote this in a very nostalgic mood, while listening to the haunting sounds of the uilleann pipe;

"What is this I feel every time I see pictures of the wild rugged landscape of Ireland and Scotland…the Celtic grounds.

What is this I feel every time I hear the sound of ancient Celtic music…the raw, rasping sounds of history, the pain, beauty, knowledge and love.

It’s as if I’ve just stood up out of time, that I’ve become a part of that time.

A woman that came…

Back to LiveIreland!

I guess I've been out of touch here for a while :) I graduated from school with associates degree back in September of 2010... and still have no job! So, although I look for jobs every day in the paper and online, I also have created my own website for doing websites and design work for those who need it.

I completed my first website for a child care facility about two weeks ago. Hopefully this means…

Margeson on the music July 2011

Brace yourself, Bridgid. There is a BRAND new album out, ink-still-wet-on-the-cover-sort-of- thing. The name of the group and album is Full Set. They came to us through Fergal and Enda Scahill. Full Set is six young unbelievably talented singers and musicians. Three from Dublin, one from Cork, one from Corofin, and we don’t know the other.

Doesn’t make any difference. We will…

IN HOC SIGNO VINCIES.







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

the…
