You Can’t Hurry Love

Whether it was in middle school or mid-life, nearly all of us have been on one side or another of an unrequited love. In the throes of it, it can really feel like love, not the one-sided infatuation the rest of the world sees it as. Of course there is an Irish story about this. Our endless trove of legend and literature is one of our best Irish gifts. And this is a true story with a happy ending, which is unusual for us and might be why it hasn’t received that much interest in the last century... Read more »

Sipping a cocktail on a tranquil sunny beach is very pleasant, no doubt, but the West of Ireland is more passionate than pleasant – and isn’t that passion what’s so amazing about love? It’s not a coincidence that so many romantic Irish gifts and stories have a link to the West specifically... The Three Big Days of Christmas in Ireland

The Three Big Days of Christmas in Ireland

While the Christmas carol ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ gets plenty of play this time of year, in North America Christmas is pretty much down to just one day, the 25th of December. Many office workers do short days on the 24th and return to work on the 26th. In Ireland, things are very different. While it is a crazy season for retail and restaurant workers, no one else expects to get all that much work done in December. We make the most of the season, and while we don’t really celebrate all of the 12 days of Christmas in Ireland, three of them still stand out and are acknowledged. One of the best Irish gifts is our enthusiasm for any sort of celebration... Read more »

Why We Love Irish Woolly Jumpers So Much

What is it about sheep and Ireland? We have a huge variety of other animals here, from beautiful wild creatures such as foxes and deer to other barnyard buddies such as cows and pigs. Once upon a time, Irish coins featured a variety of animals including a sow with piglets, different birds, a hare, an Irish wolfhound, a bull, a horse and even a salmon. All of these creatures are as representative of Irish mythology and life as sheep, some clearly more so. The Salmon of Wisdom. The Cattle Raid of Cooley, aka Tain Bo Cualnge. Yet when you look at Irish gifts, you see far more sheep than salmon... Read more »

An Irish Rose by Any Other Name?

There are Irish names, and then there are Irish names. In Ireland, it is not unusual for someone to use both the Irish and Anglo version of their first or last name. While the Irish know and understand this, it can get tricky with paperwork, passports and the like.

For example, many Irish Americans and Irish Canadians consider Patrick as Irish as a name could be. And yes, it is a popular Irish name... Read more »

Spring and early summer are hugely popular times of the year for weddings, but autumn has a lot going for it. Aside from the hope of more options for the venue for your reception, you have a dash of Irish tradition on your side. Unless you are considering October, that is. October has mixed reviews. An old Irish verse covers all the months of the year... Read more »
