mandolin strap

Well, how did Murray Heasman's interest in Celtic knotwork begin?  I used to play (well, try to play) a classical lute back mandolin (and before that, the Scottish bagpipes).  When in London, a friend and musician, Vince Millet of Secret…

I do a lot of research on Irish culture & history and spread it through oral storytelling/one person shows. My personal library is quite decent; and my relative's recordings with the Folklore Commission and my own interviewing are my inspiration.  I find people respond to video & audio (with digital) stories that are about 5-10 minutes when they're online.  I've got a story online at public radio

And I've got other stories you can use at www.IrishStoryteller.US. I can also send you download codes or hardcopies of 2 cds with several stories of Irish history if you wish.

Thanks for your attention,

Dia Duit, Belinda,

These photos were taken in 2009 on my solo celebration trip. I was celebrating my clear bill of health. The Rag Tree pictured is in Fore, Co Westmeath. It is part of the Seven Wonders of Fore. One of my favorite spots to wile away a day. Never too crowded

I aim to go home every year. However, my last trip was in 2011 and my next won't be until 2014

Hello, Belinda----

I just signed up. I have written some articles in the past for TWG. I connected with Ger in 2007. I am of Irish decent on my father's side. It goes all the way back to an indentured servant in Pennsylvania, Timothy O'Connor, who fought in the Revolutionary War. I'm off to a convention of the National Writers Union tomorrow in Chicago and wont be back home to St. Paul, MN till next Monday, so I won't be very active here over the coming week.
