Éire go brách

Or, as the Americans say, Erin Go Bragh “Ireland Forever“, as the saying means.

It’s Irish week here at Family Tree Junkie. Saturday is St. Patty’s Day and drinking will be had by many people, the Irish and non Irish alike.

My father’s family is Irish. Almost my whole line of men married Irish women, except for my grandfather and father, so I really feel the Irish in my blood.

Ireland is a beautiful country. The people are very friendly, welcoming and down to earth. No matter where you travel on the green isle, you can’t help but take in the beautiful scenery and wonderful people.

When I traveled there three years ago, as I sat upon the tour bus, I was plotting and planning to move there. If I wasn’t so scared to change the way I’m used to living, I would move there in a heartbeat. I would love to open a Bed & Breakfast in one of the counties, maybe in the county where my family originated, County Sligo. I felt such a connection and want to return so very bad.

    I would like to visit Ireland one day. I’ve got lots of Irish in me. Almost all my ansecestry come from the islands of Great Britain.
