Town, villages and cities are holding festivals and events all year.
I attended one or two myself but it's barely April so there is plenty of time for more craic! (for the non irish folks out there: craic is fun in a nutshell)

Later in the year i'd love to hold a little competition (from Petras Creations) in honor of the Gathering but I really have to think about how i'll do it. Maybe I can have people share stories about Ireland, or their crazy party stories! I often get lovely messages from customers and folks I trade with, telling me about their own links to Ireland, how much they like it here and so on. It's great to hear others love Ireland too.
Once you ignore the politics! Ireland is a country with a rich heritage with soul.
As I make this post it is Easter Sunday - happy Easter. So that means it is also the 97th anniversary of the Easter Rising. Our very own battle for independence.
