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.

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.

Donegal Crolly Dolls
A bellaonline.com reader emailed a query about where she might buy a Crolly doll. So began a quest for the answer. It is a tale of Ireland's home cottage industries and post-modern Ireland as well as a merry chase for the curious.

Dublin for Free
Irish Culture lovers will be pleased to find that Dublin has a host of things to do and see that are free.

Every Day is Earth Day in a Global Geopark
Happy Earth Day! It's Earth Day every day in a Global Geopark. Ireland has three UNESCO designated Global Geoparks in recognition of the international importance of both the natural heritage and built heritage.

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.

Halloween Barm Brack
Barm brack, a sweet fruity yeast bread, is a traditional food in Ireland at Halloween. Enjoy it with a cup of tea, or as toast, or just plain.

How to Find a Fairy in Ireland
Fairies do not always come in the form of leprechauns. These earth elementals can be spotted in places of outstanding natural beauty. But be aware that now you see them, now you don't! They take a dim view of trespassers as well, nor do they lodge deeds of ownership with the Irish Land Registry.

Ireland's Last Witch
Technically, Biddy Early is not Ireland's last witch. But she is certainly the last person threatened with prosecution under witchcraft laws. Ireland's last witchcraft trial was held in Ennis, Co. Clare in 1865. Local 'cunning woman' Biddy Early was in the dock.

Ireland's Megaliths
Most regions in Ireland have some examples of megalith. No trip to Ireland is complete without visiting these huge rocks that have so much mysterious, soulful energy. Megalithic tombs come in many shapes and sizes from majestic passage tombs to hilltop cairns or a dolmen in cow field.
