U.S. Warship Comes to Queenstown, November 1863

Posted by Margaret M. Johnson on February 5, 2020 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Ireland has a centuries-old, rich and proud history defending its people and attempting to take back control of the Island for the native population (predominantly Roman Catholics) from Britain. The countless men who have fearlessly mounted this defense have been elevated to iconic status. Nonetheless, no…

On 12 May, 1921, the Member of Parliament A.E.Newbould asked how many Irish…

Cottage Pie for Winter Comfort

Posted by Margaret M. Johnson on January 17, 2020 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Nothing warms the heart (and the stomach) in winter more than the mashed potato-topped casserole known as Cottage Pie. In a land where sheep were traditionally a primary food supply, it’s not surprising that lamb is the foundation for many Irish farmhouse dishes, especially this long-time favorite…
