Camping and Glamping in Ireland
Camping, caravaning and glamping are all popular ways that Irish residents vacation. Recreational vehicles are also increasingly seen on our highways and byways. Here are some sample campgrounds and glamping sites I have visited.

Dancing at the Crossroads
Summer solstice is a very long day indeed in Ireland with daylight from before 5am and darkness not falling until after 11pm. Little wonder dancing at the crossroads was popular at this time of year. The custom is revived now in Leitrim.

Arise, Sir Van the Man!
This week the Queen of England confered a knighthood on Northern Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison

Celebrating Yeats
Yeats Day is celebrated on June 13th. 2015 marks this literary giant's 150th birthday. While there are celebrations throughout 2015, this June will be especially ebullient.

The Lost Village of Tubber
How can you lose a whole village? This is the true story of how this County Cavan village was lost.

Irish Referendum Day 2015
May 22nd 2015 is a day when Irish citizens will vote on the 34th and 35th amendments to the Irish constitution. Whether Marriage Equality passes with a majority 'yes' or not, the campaign has shown the sea change in Irish contemporary culture.

Does Heritage have DNA?
Stories are the DNA of heritage and culture. The stories collected by those schoolchildren in 1937 and 1938, and the setting them out in neat cursive penmanship, are like genetic markers on a string of DNA in the human body.

Contemporary Irish Literary Culture
Ireland's past has a rich literary culture with four Nobel literary laureates. But the current literary culture is just as rich and even more varied. Here are some of my favorite contemporary Irish authors.

Mudlarking with Irish Birdwatchers
Guided walks with a theme and a shared purpose can really make for a special weekend outing that appeals to overseas visitors and Irish residents alike. Here Bee shares her experience out with Cavan Birdwatchers in the west of the county on a Sunday.

The Holy Wells of Ireland
The Holy Wells of Ireland are an important part of the island's spiritual heritage from pre-Christian times to the present day. Holy wells were the original cure all for mind, body and spirit.
