I almost got to set foot in Ireland,,
On one of my trips back from Germany, we landed at Shannon Airport.. A rather large gentleman with a crew cut, boarded the plane and announced that we could not disembark the plan.. but he didn't say why.. I suspect it was for our safety.. thus. I was not able to visit the Shannon Crystal Duty Free shop at the airport!.. to say I was bummed was an understatement! But safety first.
We had a 2hour lay over,, and let me tell you,, it got warm and stuff sitting there on the plan for that long...

Oh and yes,, I have 12% combo of Irish/Northern Wales in my DNA...

Grace, I'm Irish on my mother's side and 100% Irish in my soul. English & German on my daddy's side. Mother said her two grandmothers spoke with a heavy Irish bough. At 102 they rode horseback to prove to the other they could do it. One lived a couple more years and the other to 106. Through the years I have wondered if they came to America because of the potato famine and found their way to Texas.

Red hair and broad faces all Irish traits run in my mother's family. I wasn't blessed with red hair but I do have the broad Irish face.

May all Irish blessings be on all FarmGirls and may the joy of being Irish keep you through hard times.

Sara,, Luv it!
Yes, I remember (barely) about the high influx of Irish immergrants during the Potato Famine.. Many young ladies worked as maids, house keepers and nannys...
Love the Irish Spirit!

I have not been to Ireland. However, I have traced my paternal roots back to Northern Ireland, in the Lyons clan. The crest and tartan are below.

I am half-Irish. My paternal grandfather was 100% and my maternal grandmother was 100%. The Irish great grandparents came from Ireland and wound up in Arkansas. My great, great Uncle Luther played a guitar at little bars/joints with a rooster named, Red. They say he poured whiskey down the throat of Red, but I bet it was water. Whiskey is too precious to waste for an Irish guitar player, and it would probably kill the rooster. I haven't been to Ireland yet.

Keep shining!

Garce,
I am Irish and my brother's have traced our roots back. Sadly, I have never been to Ireland but it is on my bucket list!
Paternal grandmother and let me tell you she passed the Irish looks down through the kids and grandkids. My dad called it our Irish mug but he meant our chins. LOL! He also was part Mohawk on her side. My generation is 1/16th I believe. More Irish in these veins though. We are also Scottish on Dad's father's side. My brother's have the tartans. My mom was Dutch and English.

I am not full-blooded Irish...I am a mix of Irish/English/Scottish and no I have never been to Ireland. And yes, I found this out through DNA Testing. On my Mom's & Dad's Side.
I love reading Stories about The Irish and we celebrate our Heritage as much as we can here in WA State.

Love, Hugs, And Irish Blessings,
Peggy

Hi everyone,
I found out on Ancestry that both sets of maternal great grandparents were born in Ireland. Some were from Tipperary and some from Dublin. I also found a picture of one set though I can't remember right now which set. On my father's side we are Scottish. So that give me Celric

Funny story sorta. I use to work at our county fire department years ago. There was a captain with the first name of Kelly.

Most people think of Kelly as a female name. While researching gaelic words and names I came across "Kelly". When I saw the captain the next time I asked him if he knew what his name meant in Gaelic. He kinda grumbled and said no. I informed him it translates to "Warrior". He smiled and thanked me. Guess I made his day back then.

I am 30% Irish and thrilled to be so. I did not know what I was until a couple of years ago when I did my DNA. It has been a difficult journey to find out who I am, but also fun. I have always celebrated St. Patty's day, it is a very jolly holiday.

Big Hugs,

Yes Grace! Corned beef and cabbage but I like to make other dishes to celebrate the day. Always looking in to new
ones. I found a cookbook called Irish Heritage that I enjoy using and perusing.

Tonight at 8:30 p.m. CST Channel 13 PBS out of Dallas is airing the Best of Celtic Woman. I hope I can watch some of it before I fall asleep. Celtic Woman is an amazing group.

I remember as a kid,, you had better wear something green on St. Paddy's Day or you could get pinched.. I suspect nower days,, that is considered inappropriate.
I still out of habit wear something green are at least a green shamrock pin.

I am solid Irish on my mothers side. Always been proud of it. Have the red hair and blue green eyes, ok the temper too lol. But just like good Irish whiskey it mellowed with age !My youngest daughter ended up with the most beautiful green eyes you ever saw. I am very proud of my Irish heritage. I also am Scot on my dads side. So what a combo !!

MaryJane,
Yes, the temper. I didn't want to mention that for me though. LOL!
Also Scot on my dad's side. Quite a combo for sure. My brother's are really into our ancestry. They have written up a ton of stuff. Very interesting to see where we came from and how all of it comes together and makes us who we are! I married a half Irishman so my kids...iyiyi! LOL.

I have Irish roots. Was told we are “Scotch Irish” and my great grandmother’s last name was distinctly Irish! They landed in Arkansas, and my dear sweet grandmother was buried there, in a small cemetery, next to her all her relatives, including many brothers and sisters. They were farmers. We had redheads, brunettes, and blondes, all in my granny’s family, all with very pale Irish skin!

We visited relatives there when my daughter was little, and got to see my last living great-aunt before she died. It was an amazing feeling to stand on relative’s graves going back hundreds of years. We put flowers on my grandmother’s grave, and all of a sudden the vase leaked everywhere. We couldn’t find the hairline crack in the vase at all. We all felt like it was my grandmother, sending a sign, weeping with joy that we were all there. I haven’t been back since. :(

I definitely have an Irish personality - headstrong and stubborn, and independent. My daughter does too.

I love to cook Irish, though not a fan of lamb.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole though I didn't inherit red hair I do have the Irish pale skin - very pale.

Grace I've never had green beer but I am fond of triple casked single malt Irish whiskey. A little later I'll treat myself to a wee glass.

Anyone ever make colcannon for St.Patrick's day. I made it last year and it was good. Hubby didn't care for it. He has German roots. My bestie makes it every year.

For those who haven't heard of colcannon it is a traditional Irish dish made of potato with kale or cabbage.
