•  The Great Irish Famine

     

    A friend and songwriter in Ireland, Finbarr O'Reilly, has made a YouTube video protesting a British TV sitcom which makes fun of the Great Irish Famine. Insensitive is not the word. Please take a look at this:

    Our guides allow travellers start the journey from home.  We thought you might enjoy our stories of hideaway fairytale castles, schoolhouses from the 19th century, medieval blacksmiths, Norman knights, trampoliners at the Arts festivals, sixteenth century mints, falconry and more.

     BOGSIDE HISTORY TOURS IN DERRY

     

      

     

     These tours are an hour long and cover Civil Rights era and Bloody Sunday. Retrace part of the original march and the visitor is taken to the places where people were murdered on the day and view actual bullet holes left from the British Army fire. The tour will finish at the Bloody Sunday monument in Rossville Street in the Bogside were the Widgery and the Saville reports are looked at. The tour guide will have been directly affected by Bloody Sunday, as myself and and my brother Paul had our father murdered on the day itself. We also offer historical tours of Derry around the 400 hundred year old city walls, the most intact walls in Europe as well as tours of Donegal and the Antrim coast.                    Gleann Doherty.  http://www.bogside-history-tours.com/

    Pining for Genuine Irish Goods?

     

     

     I have just started a new company called eire2you.  It’s a web-based shopping site for expatriate Irish or anyone wanting stuff from Ireland.

     

    There’s no minimum order and the difference between my company and other internet shopping sites is that I’m based in Ireland, you tell me what you want & I’ll go shopping for you. 

     

    For example if you wanted a Westmeath Examiner, Barry’s tea bags, a packet of Mikado’s and a Dublin GAA jersey you would not be able to get these all from one place.  I’ll go and get these items.  I’ll go to however many shops needed to complete this order, package & post it to you for a small shopping fee.  You pay the actual cost of the items, even if they are in a sale.  And not the inflated cost of Irish goods you’ll find on other web-sites.

     

    All the details about eire2you, frequently asked questions, how to register and how to order stuff can be found at www.eire2you.com

    Dubliner, Finbarr O'Reilly writes beautiful melodies and sings from the heart, stories and ballads of people and situations which will touch everyone's heart. Some have called him, "Ireland's Dylan" and he is very well known in Ireland and has had a recent song singled out for honours. His latest CD, "Storylines" is a treat, one which you will want to play over and over. As he currently has no distributor here, you may order disks directly from Finbarr  himself at fintrail@gmail.com . If requested, he will personalize your CD for you. Don't miss this one, folks!
