  •  Turlough O'Carolan (5+ / 0-)

    as played by harper and storyteller Patrick Ball. I have been known to play a few O'Carolan tunes on the penny whistle.

    Also Irish soda bread. The only problem with it is that we never had a loaf last more than half an hour out of the oven.

    And of course James Joyce.

    And the all gianed in with the shoutmost shoviality. Agog and Magog and the round of them agrog.
    A key fact left out of this diary is that artists and writers in Ireland pay no income tax on their sales and royalties.

      And two kinds of potato with each meal--yum!

      This comment is a natural product. The slight variations in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and in no way are to be considered flaws or defects.
