Maybe!

Yes I would go, though it would depend what date it was held on. Would be great to meet up with the ubiquitous, omnipresent, omniscient, atractiva Miss Grundy!

Magical mystical Ireland, let's explore and explode some of the myths...
Posted: 11/19/2008 4:30:46 PM
"A small number of devotees still go to holy wells in Ireland to "pay rounds," by circling a well three times and making a sign of the cross over it with a pebble. All ceremonies at holy wells were once frowned upon by The Church, which saw them as holdovers from Ireland’s pagan era. "
Source: Ireland fun facts

I had to asked my Mother about the mystical. Now according to her, folklore has it that if someone were to drink from a 'holy well' they would become a great poet.

Country girl, ex farmers wife I may well be; but I can tell you Miss Grundy when you're on the potato planter or potato harvester, the last thing you are thinking of doing is looking around for pagan artefacts.

Though it is interesting what I was able to pull up on google about your topic. Your book recommendation is on my Christmas wish list. If you are ever in the area I will show you the local sites, you could maybe educate me about them.

American Presidents descended from here....
Posted: 11/19/2008 3:51:17 PM
"Did you know that there have been more than forty-one US presidents?"
James in SD

Well spotted James in SD...I've had to search for updated information. Yes there was obviously a typo in Johnson's name.


Seventeen of the 43 American
Presidents are generally
accepted as being of Ulster
ancestry. Some have more
direct Ulster links than
others, but the connection to
18th and 19th century
immigrants from the north of
Ireland is tangible.

The following link contains the names of the seventeen Presidents with Ulster Scots links.

http://www.ulsterscotsagency.com/sitefiles/resources/0397ulsterscotspresplan.pdf

Historical research by BILLY KENNEDY, author of the Scots-Irish Chronicles,
1995-2002

Montyni - very good post. Even I didn't realise the Ulster Scots were known over there as the Scots-Irish.

ThatGuy67 - Yes I'm sure there are a few Canadian Prime Ministers with links to here. Maybe you could share some of that information with us, as I'm not as familiar with them.

"...North Americans of Irish descent."

So you took time away from your work and carried out a study which clearly identified the tourists as 'Irish descent'?

Fairy rings, raggy bushes and holy wells...sounds mystically pagan and good to me. Can I have some too.


Sorry haven't the slightest notion what you are talking about, but I will tomorrow.

Yeah good old Ronnie, he was so in love (allegedly) with Maggie Thatcher. Kinda reminded me of Maud Gonne and W.B. Yeats...tongues hanging out, but couldn't have any.

I'm sure Clinton claimed Fermanagh as his ancestors' roots?

I think you's down there could lay claim to George Dubya. The amount of things that drivelled from his lips, could only be described as Irish.

Miss Grundy I notice you use a well known word derived from Ulster-Scots language...'sheugh or sheuch' and also 'craic'.

Heck never mind Markus throwing us off here, again, the Tourist board will be demanding our scalps.
Yeah I remember those Americans/Canadians tramping around the dirt tracks in the County of Donegal wearing those big itchy looking Aran jumpers...they looked like sheep from afar, well fed sheep at that.

We're great ambassdors for enticing the Americans, and those other ones who live in their attic, the Canucks.

With this credit crunch and the construction industry in tatters, think I'll apply at the local Tourist Office see if they have a vacancy.

Talking of our good American tourists...

A few months ago I was in the little tea shop down where W.B Yeats is buried, at Drumcliff; a bus load of either Americans or Canadians ( I can no longer tell by their accent) pulled up in a coach and proudly pranced in. We had to stop and watch them, it was raining cats and dogs, but here they were running around in shorts and t-shirts. Don't they know it rains non-stop over here, does no-one tell them.

They viewed the items which were for sale on the shelves, one woman lifted a tiny little teapot, and said to her husband/male friend, "Isn't that beautiful, but look at the price?" He scornfully replied, "Do they think we're dumb."

Ummmmmm....yes!

American Presidents descended from here....
Posted: 11/18/2008 3:05:26 PM
What street is Canada on? I can't remember who said that.

"That's interesting but I don't get the distinction as in the fact that those presidents have an Ulster-Scots ancestry as opposed to a plain old Irish one."
The ubiquitous Miss Grundy

Let me try to explain...

"The first major influx of Scots into Ulster came during the settlement of east Down. This started in May 1606 and was followed in 1610 by the arrival of many more Scots as part of the Plantation of Ulster."
Irish News

Now apparently the parents of said gentlemen hailed from the Lowlands of Scotland at the time of the Plantation of Ulster; this is how history defines this period, (not the Ulster Scots group). As they were of Presbyterian religion, they were either labelled or called themselves Ulster Scots.

Now answer the questions I asked or take up position on the Post Office.

As the Ireland Forum is attracting quite a few American/Canadian posters...

Did you know that 16 of the 41 American Presidents were Ulster-Scots or had Ulster-Scots ancestry? They are: Andrew Jackson, James Knox Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnston, Ulysses S.Grant, Chester Alan Arthur, Grover Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, George Bush and Bill Clinton! George W Bush has become the 17th American President with Ulster-Scots connections. William Jefferson Clinton is a relative of Lucas Cassidy, of Ulster Presbyterian stock, who left Co. Fermanagh for America around 1750.

And George W Bush can trace his ancestral roots back to the 18th century Scots-Irish diaspora form Ulster. Mr Bush's ancestor on his mother's side, William Gault, was a first citizen of Tennessee in 1796 and is believed to have been born somewhere in Co. Antrim.

Source: Ulster-Scots Agency

Who would be considered to have been the most successful, influential or a complete dim-wit during his tenure in Office? And why?

I kinda wanted to leave George Dubya off that list!

HI Atticus06,

I think the town you mean is spelled Lurgan.

Just to clarify the name of the person you are making enquiries about; is his name Edwin Connor?

It's not my part of the country, but I'm certain if you googled it, you may well find some information on that family.

dating foreigners
Posted: 11/16/2008 9:17:28 AM
You wouldn't possibly be generalising here? Do you think we just delete the foreigner's emails? Think again. :)

How can you categorically state that us women do not contact or date men because of the colour of their skin or their nationality?

You may not be having much success on this dating site, but how do you know your fellow countrymen or other nationalities are not?

I for one have met allsorts...a Spaniard, an African, an Indian, a gawdless American and one from the ice box above them. Although I didn't date any of them, it had nothing to do with their colour/nationality - they remain friends.

mary whitehouse, THE banned poem
Posted: 11/15/2008 5:49:55 PM
That's the first time I have even heard about that poem - thanks for the link.

It would be considered to be written in bad taste to the majority of Christians, some may view it as blasphemous... it's definitely not what I want to read as poetry.

Though I don't think it should be banned, censorship only leads to curiosity and sparks public interest even more. Free press is there for a reason, those who find it distasteful shouldn't read or purchase it.

when u meet someone u like do u still go on line?
Posted: 11/15/2008 3:54:37 PM
Tecnic you have just got to be a send-up, there is no way you can be a serious person. You are sounding like such a pessimist amongst other things which cannot be written down.

Between advising ones not to turn up to the Pof party in Dublin a few weeks ago, as we would all fight with each other and stab one another. Now you are sharing more of your infamous words of wisdom...blackmailed, adultery, liars.

Watch you don't get hit by a bus, or even worse, you actually get a date off here!

As you 'are' a radio presenter; did you hear of the competition where the public were invited to think up a new word, one which was not in any dictionary. The prize was 1500 Euros. Some guy rang in and thought up the word 'Goan', which I thought was excellent as it's a word used in local vernacular. Though the presenter didn't think it was worthy of the prize.

What is your view on that word? Do you think Tecnic that the presenter was wrong not to award that caller the prize for his word?

Btw- I can read your profile; are you really only 5' in height?

Should The Police Have Ultimate Power In Child Protection?
Posted: 11/14/2008 4:56:28 AM
I don't believe police should have ultimate power in child protection, as they are not qualified to deal with the extensive issues surrounding the abuse of children.

The major problem which I can see, is the distinct lack of communication between the local health authorities and the Police Service. This seems to be the loophole where the worst cases of child abuse are slipping through.

Juus you received a ban and you're at it again...I love a rebel.

I wouldn't have a clue how I would feel if I thought I were seen mainly as a sexual object. Most probably lap it up until it would be annoying.

Around here I'm seen as slave, cleaner, fetcher, getme, taxi service and the bank of Mum.

I can honetly say no-one has ever treated me as a sexual object - chance would be a fine thing.

If I were to meet someone I would most likely still go online to participate in the Forums and keep up with the friends I have made online. It is a matter of trust, they either trust you or they don't. You do have the option of hiding your profile, which might be useful while you are dating someone.

As someone has stated, your friend may just not be signing out each time he signs in which makes it appear he is constantly online on Pof. I know I sign in to messenger and Pof then get distracted by other things, or even leave the house and forget to sign off...makes it appear as though I'm glued to these sites.

Good luck in your new relationship Cailin Beag. It is a terrible thing to be banned, not that I would know anything about it.

Wasn't the film, 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' starring Jack Nicholson, loosely based on this research?

The Lord be with you two.

Don't worry Jenpo88, we're not all crazy like that Miss Grundy...she is actually institutionalised at present, and the medical profession here no longer believe in filling these patients with tablets to cure them of their affliction...they just pass a laptop in beneath the door of her padded cell each evening. Apparently it stops her painting her face a darthly yellow colour.

Now show some Christian empathy. When I meet Miss Grundy we converse in tongues, it's the only method of communication she comprehends.

Ireland is a beautiful country. I'm in the North, it's actually more alluring than the South.

The arse has fallen out of the Celtic Tiger
Posted: 10/30/2008 5:44:48 PM
Miss Grundy you really do make me work hard...:)

I must admit I don't keep up with Irish Econmic Policy, so I've had to go read some of the latest developments.

Now I found the following in World Socialist Website dated 22nd October, so it's fairly recent; it is the Taoiseach's response to the latest Budget cuts.

"Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Brian Cowen went out of his way to assure ruling circles that business would not be hit by such cuts. Writing in the Irish Times, he insisted, "One of the important messages of this budget is that Ireland is very much open for business. We are keeping our commitment to capital spending of more than 5 percent of GDP.

Cuts in the government's capital spending projects designed to improve Ireland's ailing infrastructure were also announced, with as much as €1.4 billion being removed from a budget of €6 billion. This reduction is likely to mean the end of many infrastructure projects, including the west coast rail link and the metro system in North Dublin. "

I can see what you mean by the cuts announced in the Budget, though even after the 1.4 billion Euro cut that still leaves 4.6 billion Euro to spend on Irelands infrastructure. That seems like a lot of money to plough into the economy.

I think I'm correct in stating that the Irish Government are imposing a 10 Euro tax on all flights which comes into effect very soon; and that 'artists' will now be taxed(?). Didn't they also make cut backs with regard to medical assistance to the over 70's?

Oh the Boyne Valley...now that could be contentious.

On a different note...are they still planning to build a motorway through the Hill of Tara?

The arse has fallen out of the Celtic Tiger
Posted: 10/29/2008 3:36:23 PM
Oh I don't believe the Celtic Tiger has lost it's roar.

Irelan has enjoyed a fantastic spurt in economic growth over the past decade, figures as high as 8% have been published. Which if I remember correctly was one of the best in the world. And according to the following excerpt from the European Business website, Ireland is still investing strongly on it's infrastructure.

"Certainly, Ireland will be attractive for major construction firms as it prepares to spend €180bn on infrastructure under its much-touted National Development Plan (NDP). New motorways between Dublin and all of the other major cities, new railways around Dublin, Cork and the West of Ireland, and waste treatment plants in dozens of major towns will all be built before 2013."
European Business

One of Irelands biggest industries is pharmaceuticals, which should be able to withstand the current economic conditions. Pfizer was to invest 500 million Euro on it's plants based in Ireland this year.

The South is quite attractive to invest in because of its low corporate tax regime. There are many Companies from here operating out of the South just to avail of this, which makes it more attractive than the North, or even Britain.

People just didn't heed the many warnings which clearly stated over the past few years that we were living above our means, a society of debt, and no thought of tomorrow. I have heard tales of people on benefits being given credit cards, and racking up £20,000 of debt on several of them...these are now written off as bad debt.

I know developers were downright greedy, though higher wages also pushed up house prices...I witnessed within a few years it going from 30p a block to £1.50, so the skilled workforce are not blameless. Estate Agents are equally at fault. The big banks were dishing out mortgages to those who fell way short of the financial criteria for the huge amounts of money they required for a house purchase. Poor financial management.

It's nauseating to read in the Bank Reports how these bank officials are still in line to pick up the huge tax free bonus, the cost of which undoubtedly will be passed on to the customer.

Muscly women.?
Posted: 10/28/2008 7:18:16 AM
Anthropometry is the study of human body measurement.

Whilst Alma is vaguely correct, I would have to disagree with the statement that size of the neck ALWAYS is half of one's waist measurement. It certainly isn't with me.

Take for example a group of Athletes, boxers in particular, their neck will usually be more than half of their waist measurement.

I'm not well conversed with Anthropometry, though I believe it is more associated with Anthropology, and has been extensively used in the past in forensics and criminology.

Anyhow I think huge muscles on either a man or a woman are not very attractive, though that is just my preference, many will be attracted to muscly people.

We're so sorry you won't be able to make it to the Dublin party Tecnic, maybe next time, eh?

Why don't ya come Tecnic...sure go on go on go on. Who else will volunteer to lay upon the spinning wheel for us to throw knives at?

I rarely ever watch television, and don't have RTE. My viewing amounts to Come Dancing, X Factor on a Saturday night, with a few interesting documentaries being aired throughout the week.

We used to have a very good comedienne up here who was known as Nuala Mc Keever, though I haven't heard anything from her in a while.

Although Luvly has invited me down to hers to watch some blue movies next week.

Although from what you Miss Grundy have been regurgitating on the forums...I love the 'Wear American pantees, one yank and they're off'. Ya know some of my Yankee penpals haven't replied to my emails since I kindly shared that one with them.

Oh that 'akamrsmith' or whatever he was called, alledgedly he is real busy with work this weather, and he needed to save up his saliva for cleaning windows instead of spitting it all out at Miss Grundy.

It was the first time I can ever remember in 25 years not having to drive, which was truly wonderful...I got to try out a few more white and red wines. And had some wicked conversations on the phone with a little fellow in the local Tesco store, who was explaining to me in his effeminate voice how he knew a lot about red wine...he tastes but never swallows...now that was good fun.

The only reason I know is because I have almost every book on Yeats; and his love affair with her/or lack of, is so sad and heart wrenching...they should've been lovers.

^^^^Of course Miss Grundy, and yourself as well! :)


"This happened to me more than once but the most memorable was when as the guy appeared on cam, ( I was expecting his face remember) he was stark naked with his back to the camera trying to shove what looked like a bar of soap up his rear end!! eeewww!"!!"

The only time I have seen the name Iseult was in reading Irish History, she was the daughter of Maud Gonne.

A very kind person has just sent me an email explaining that my name is Guinevere in Cornwall, and Genevieve in French. That explains why I have been called these variants of my name.

This place is a wonderful hove of information.

Edit: I wouldn't know Alma if Miss Pettigrew's name was that, as I never watch blue movies, but I'll take your word for it.

Oh Alma you cannot be so naive surely?

Guys just love showing off their wares, though they are not alone. At one time I would've given out my Msn address to almost anyone who asked for it, and I can tell the gals are just as bad at showing their bits and bobs too.

I had one gal asked me for a nude photo...heck I didn't have any (sold them all to xtube) but as she kindly shared hers with me, I was intending to send her one of myself on my horse. Well being the technophobe that I am, after hours of trying to figure the damn process out, I also finally discovered how to send a music file...so I decided I would send her Shirley Bassey's 'Goldfinger' instead...she was extremely ungrateful. She wrote back and told me to go 'bleep' myself.

I have received many jaw dropping photos, and had to scurry to get them wiped off this laptop before some of the more technical little hands found them.

I don't believe anything could shock me anymore, I have received umpteen wicked emails.

Sean is the correct spelling of that name. John is the English equivalent of it. Though I have seen it spelled Sean, Shaun and Shawn, and once had a school female friend called Shauna.

Most English names have an Irish equivalent...example Seamus is James.

I have been called Guinevere on quite a few occasions, and I don't know why, as this is nothing similar to my name...I don't think it is the Irish equivalent either.

Miss Grundy has a very beautiful Irish name, if she wishes to share.

Traveller how have you connected sheep shearing with the spelling of the name Shawn? Hope I haven't asked a silly obvious question.

How are we supposed to be imaginative when you put nothing in your profile?

I don't get that Alma; are you saying you send cheeky messages, which are seemingly intelligent and the recipients are unintelligent because they don't/can't reply?

Would you like to elaborate a little?

And yes it can be really tiresome replying to someone who has little or nothing in their profile. I always read the profile before I send off an email or before I reply to one.

Togetherness
Posted: 10/24/2008 2:48:05 PM
Togetherness is nice, but it has to be with the right person, and it definitely isn't just for a bit of slapping. And no I don't seek to be with someone all of the time, or most of the time...though it would be nice to know there was someone there in the background whom I could rely on.

Maybe your friend has an addictive personality??

Yes Cailin Beag spell it out, what is wrong with Alma's friends?
