Brought To You By TheIrishStore.com and The Wild Geese
Along with TheIrishStore.com, among our most celebrated Irish Heritage Partners, we are looking for your help identifying ‘Great Irish Spots,’ wherever and whenever you’ve found them.
These might include a pub in Johannesburg, a restaurant in Howth, a shrine in lower Manhattan, a memorial in Sydney, a gift shop in Chicago, a parade in Savannah, your gram’s kitchen in Malin Head, and so many more.
If they evoke for you the artistry, emotional power and heritage of the Irish ‘wherever green is worn,’ we want you to tell us about them, posting in The Wild Geese Blog under your member’s personal profile. The article that draws the most ‘likes’ from fellow members will receive a $100 gift voucher from TheIrishStore.com. (We are making available five additional prizes for up to five runners-up, including albums and books to be identified.)
Deadline for submission is March 31, 2014. For inclusion in the contest, entrants (and entries) must include the words ‘One Great Irish Spot’ in the blog post’s title line, along with your own title.
We welcome electioneering, along with recruiting new members, so help get out the votes (and the readership) for your favorite!
