On December 5, 2013, The Wild Geese enjoyed a LIVE Community Chat with Sligo-based author and historian, Joe McGowan. It was an evening filled with holiday nostalgia as Joe and other Wild Geese members reminisced about some of the bygone and dying Irish Christmas traditions. You can read the transcript from that enjoyable chat here.
This chat session was sponsored by MyIrelandBox, a company based on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry with a fun concept. MyIrelandBox deliver monthly surprise boxes of the best of Irish made craft, so you can surprise yourself just once or every month. Their mission is to surprise and excite their customers with the best Irish made craft items that our Irish talented artists produce. They scour Ireland and meet with the most talented craftspeople to find you the cutest and most amazing handmade craft items in the country right now. They place them in a nicely presented box, keep the contents a surprise, and ship them to your door. Then comes the thrill of unboxing! Obviously, these boxes make fun gifts as well.
The good folks there at MyIrelandBox will be sending one of their January 2014 editions to one lucky Wild Geese member who participated in the December 5th chat with Joe McGowan. We did a random drawing from those members' names, and the winner of the January 2014 MyIrelandBox is ... Michael Waugh!
Congratulations to Michael, and our thanks to MyIrelandBox for adding to the festive spirit in The Wild Geese community during this Christmas season.
