W. B. Yeats Sesquicentennial
2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Irish literary giant William Butler Yeats. Yeats was the first Irish Nobel laureate of literature and remains a strong influence in Irish culture to this day.

Donegal Crolly Dolls
I received an email asking me, "Where can I get a Crolly Doll?" Good question. It has led me on a quest of sorts. As all quests in Ireland, the answer was not as straightforward as you might think.

The Hearth in the Irish Home
Maintaining a connection to nature's elements is characteristic of Irish culture. The open fire, or hearth, provided the gathering place where food, stories and music were shared, being the heartbeat transmitting of Irish culture.

A New Taste of Ireland
The 2014 Taste of Cavan food festival highlighted the many artisan food producers joining Ireland's agri-food sector. Irish food festivals reflect the subtle change in Ireland's food culture over the past two decades.

A ‘New’ Traditional Irish Food
Seaweed is now enjoying some 'super food' status. Many people don't consider seaweed as part of traditional Irish cuisine, but in the northwest of Ireland the culinary culture persisted. Now , a Sligo woman general practitioner, has created a culinary guide to seaweed.

What the Heck is a Fleadh and a Feis
Those mysterious, seeminingly unpronounceable words actually spell the magic of a grand competition and festival of traditional Irish music. And good craic! Now say it, Flah and fesh!

Generosity Is a Way of Irish Life
According to the Charities Aid Foundation, Ireland has featured in the top ten most generous countries in the world since 2010. This was despite, or perhaps even because, of the economic austerity measures and recession.

Recipe For A Celtic Feast
A recent Celtic Blessing celebrating the renewal of a couple's wedding vows included the four essential elements for making the Celtic Blessing an authentic Irish feast.

St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day is a welcome break in Lenten abstinence. This national holiday is also a Roman Catholic holy day of obligation. So before the merry making there is prayer.

Understanding the Celtic Calendar
The Celtic calendar, or Wheel of the Year as it is sometimes called, is also reflected in modern Irish culture. The old Cross Quarter Days still give their Irish names to the months of February, May, August and November.
