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.

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.

As Irish as Potatoes
Potatoes are almost synonymous with Irish culture. But they are a relatively recent dietary innovation. The Irish potato, however, is completely woven into the Irish consciousness as well as the national menu.

Trees ARE Irish Culture
The first week of March is Irish Tree Week. Irish Culture owes a huge debt to trees. The first Irish alphabet was the ogham or tree alphabet. The Celtic tree calendar followed the seasonal cycle and an ancient Celtic Goddess even married a tree!
