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
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
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.
I've been meaning to join for a while but a tweet from Ger about the article ref Dan O' Hara Homestead spurred me to finally do so! (I work at the Heritage Centre) and have an interest in all things Ireland
