In September 1862, two Irish-born men were about to put their lives on the line for their adopted American nation.  One was Dennis Heenan from Borrisokane, County Tipperary who arrived in Philadelphia in 1839.  He joined one of the many Irish militias defending Irish neighborhoods from the bigoted…

Celebrating Goat Cheese!

Posted by Margaret M. Johnson on August 10, 2021 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Did you know August is National Goat Cheese Month? Frankly, I didn’t, but a friend who follows a “National Day Calendar” that celebrates foods on a monthly and daily basis reminded me to promote goat cheese before I’m too late. No problem, as I’ve enjoyed goat cheese countless time during my…

The Galloping Hogan

Autism + Art + Decolonise

Posted by The Last Torch on June 14, 2021 at 2:30am 1 Comment

I started my visual art journey as a way to explore the idea I was autistic. I was diagnosed autistic at 45! It's been rough and I've fought really hard to stay a good person despite the abuse and lack of understanding. Music was my first love and I am blessed to have been raised in an Irish traditional sense by a musical mother.
