Hands up and all say 'aye' if you are Irish and believe that means we are a unique race ..Page 2 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
Average white male do not let the few influence your thoughts on ireland people. I have found them to be very hospitable when visiting ireland. Go to age gaps and you will see that it isn't only you they think they are superior to. It will give you a good laugh. Not engaging in debate doesn't mean you can't, it just means you didn't lower yourself to their level.

A family member began a surname search and traced our family back to Ireland. Not sure how we ended up in South,Louisiana but I would like a vacation to Ireland someday. It would be great if I could meet someone with the same name and be related.I know I have family somewhere out there and always had a desire to meet them.

I am sorry in advance to step into your conversation. I'm an American with Irish history on my Moms side. She visits Ireland every year. All the stories she shares with me about your beautiful country, the friendly people, heck, even the potato soup she can't stop trying to copy...makes me just about ready to sell my home and move there. Be it that being Irish is a race, or a culture, or how ever you decide to say it. I'm proud to know that there is just a lil Irish in me.....
Happiness to ya.

Now i've heard all about this 'oirish art of courtship' many times...

Aaaaaah! Finally! and what a joy to see it in probably one of it's highest and most refined forms, ten out of ten grundy and average (where did the rest of the band go by the way? They were ok in the 70's i think)

I propose we all attend the wedding ceremony forthwith and without further ado so these lovebirds can get that knot tied asap and banter joyously forevermore in the privacy of the bridal bedroom....hopefully with the lights out

Honestly tho A man who knows how to hold a guitar really shouldn't show himselflup with a bad case of premature typulation like that it's just plain messy...sing to us baby, something with soul.

I agree with you ms rebecca. Every time i go to ireland my family wonders if i'm comming back. Who knows Maybe next trip. I like the irish stew myself. Southernguy 1960 look up your surname in ireland. My family has family reunions every 3 years. of course they are called Clans over there. Are the irish unique. Of Course, what else would an irish person say. But when you get two clans together and add a little prussian. It gets very unique. And by all means go to ireland and have fun.

I can just see MalaSam googling again.

Think before you type? Where's the spontaneity in that? huh? HUH? ^^

Meh! I spend a lot of time in an online browser based game as leader of a spammy bunch of spartan tribesmen and women who comm through a multi-topic forum page .

I quit trying to regulate them and their manners and spam levels on forums a long time ago, find it much easier to watch, laff and join in really :)

Also, with it being a global game (750k+ ppl worldwide) it's actually built into the rules not to flame people for 'ropey grammar' and spelling etc as long as they can get their idea across then it's tolerated.

Ahem, so ye, don't always get back in time to edit the smaller points on my posts or bother myself with some of the errors, and sometimes 'gor blimey!' I actually make deliberate ones for conversational tone and effect...

If the people of Ireland are Irish then why did the Romans who were meticulous in recording their potential enemies and potential allies record the people living in the North East of what we call Ireland as the SCOTTII?
The people of what we call Scotland were recorded as PICTII.

The Roman also conquered the Iberian peninsula to the North of which are the bagpipe playing GALICIANS. (To west of Asturias and Cantabria today)
It is from GALICIA driven out by the Roman occupation that a King MIL and his sons CON and MUG arrive in SCOTTII territory.
From MUG you get MUNSTER (Mug's part) and Conns Remainder CONNAGHT
These are the men who were GALLIC or GAELIC as it became known.

So the indigenous race of people in (Ireland???) were SCOTTII and spoke SCOTTII not Gaelic or Gallic.
The SCOTTII discovered all of the islands NE of Scottii territory in the auld sod . One of their tribes was called the DAL RIADA another ARGIALLA from which ARGYLLE came.

The kingdom which stretched from SCOTTII (IRELAND) to Iceland in the North and over to VINLAND (NOVA SOTTIA) was known to the SCOTTII

The people of St Kilda were SCOTTII 150 miles out in Atlantic near Rockall.

When LEIF ERICSON (ERIC THE RED) was banished from the SCOTTII port of DUBLIN (Baille Ath Cliath) he knew from the Scottii that there was an island North of the Hebrides to go to.
He knew because SCOTTI from the Abbey at Bangor had already settled on an island SE of Iceland known today as PAPEY after the papes or Christians who settled there well before Eric arrived.

Eric knew the way to Vinland because SCOTTII had discovered VINLAND (NOVA SCOTIA) hundreds of years before him.

So when Kerry man BRENDAN set out to sail to VINLAND from Gaelic Kerry (MUNSTER) he knew it existed because SCOTTII had been there before him.

Later a certain Welshman named AMERIK saled from Bristol to VINLAND to get salted cod for the population of Bristol.
You should arrive in Bristol and discuss how to get there but a certain Christopher COLUMBUS.
That is why AMERIKA became AMERICA and not COLUMBIA or PHILLIPA.

So the SCOTTII are indeed a true race. Not Irish but SCOTTII nor indeed PICTII or CALEDONII and never GAELIC or GALLIC before MIL and his BLACK HAIRED BLUE EYED SPANISH CONQUIOSTADORES arrived c 150 AD.

So the SCOTTII were in SCOTIA long before the VIKINGS in 850 or the Welsh in 1300 or the SPANISH.

AMERICA should be remamed SCOTIA after it European discoverers . Iceland should be claimed by the SCOTII as dependent territory and all the oil and fishing rights on the sea bed from South of the old sod to Iceland and right over to Vinland immediately.

PS we also educated EUROPE in the dark ages after bringing CHRISTIANITY to SCOTIA. (Perhaps with hindsight not a good move)

Of course I am proud to be SCOTTISH?ie from the race of indigenous dwellers (C 12000 BC onwards) of the AULD SOD (ERIN) (known today as IRELAND) .

Now for something even more interesting

West of Mongolia is a desert called Takla Makan.
In that desert is a place called Urumchi.
In the salt deposits they dug up mummies of tall men (compared to the chinese).
They have long noses(caucasian) and red coloured hair.

Does this remind you of the Scottii the men who lived in Erin before the Galician conquistadores (Gaels) arrived. Of course it does.

Maybe you need convincing/

Well the mummies were wearing clothes made from sheep wool (in a desert?)

And the wool was woven into cloth which is unmistakenly TARTAN cloth.

So if it looks like a SCOTTII and wears Tartan like a SCOTTII and has a red beard like a SCOTTII it must be a SCOTTII.

So what were these Ulstermen doing in the TAKLA MAKAN desert c 4500 yrs BC.

Obviously they were discovering CHINA.

So the SCOTTII discovered AMERICA and lead the way to CHINA 5000 yrs before Marco Polo.

Call yourselves Irish or Gaelic but you are in reality SCOTTII from the same place as me. Travellers of the world from Mongolia to Nova Scotia.

Makes you think huh?? Ireland was invaded so many times that who knows where they came from. Sound familiar? I'm sure when my ancestors from Ireland came to America they weren't concerned who came from where. And to think i thought America was named after Americo Vaspucci. I wonder, did china need to be discovered? I do wish they had kept better records though.

I am very proud to be Irish but fee fi fo fum I smell the blood of an English Man pretending to be someone he isn't on this very thread - ho hum

ACCORDING TO HAPPY

I am quite sure that the Ulster Giant Finn MaCoul or the Scottish lesser Giant Fingal never uttered the words Fee Fi Fo Fum in their lives.

Only a Giant who was a fairy would say Fee Fi Fo Fum.

A Giant who fumbled , fiddled and fidgeted with himself might say it but Finn and Fingal were bigger and better than any fairy tale giant. Was this Fee Fi Fo Fum giant of legend actually English?

Gotta admit...... Always wanted to see Ireland. There seem to be more then a few transplants from there, here in the 'states'. Love to hear the accent. Living near Boston, one can only imagine how bad our accents are around here. lol Every year we hold the largest free 'folk festival' in the country in a nearby city. Its always the Irish music that makes me stop and stick around for a bit.

I think we are the only immagrants that are accepted worldwide cause we built your roads, policed your country, etc, etc, etc.
God loves the Irish!!!!


Hmmm.....check out a recent Aussie movie released on DVD called “Dying Breed”. The story’s all about the lives of “some” Irish immigrants in Tasmania, Australia. Its good stuff.

Enjoy.

My father was the first generation in my family born in the US. His parents immigrated from Cork while my grandmother was pregnant with him. My family has always been incredibly proud of our Irish heritage. The Irish are a strong, steadfast and giving people. Generous of spirit, friendliness and wit. My father passed away a very long time ago, never having lived to see his "home" as he called it.

I had the pleasure and good fortune to have been able to travel to Ireland with my family a few years ago. The minute our feet hit the soil, my daughter and I began to weep. We had made the trip my father and her grandfather had only dreamed of. Everyone we met was gracious and kind. I have traveled and lived all over the world, but the trip "home" will always be my fondest memory. While I am sure there are plenty of native Irish who dislike being part of the tourism trap and dealing with all the "Yanks" seeking their presumed heritage, this was not my experience.

So, I am standing proud (Yank and all) with a loud and boisterous AYE. Thank you all for allowing me to post.

Cheers!
