Welcome to the Bit O’ Irish mini blog hop.

Rules: bloggers must post something Irish, even if it is vacation pics taken while on the Isle. Participants may join in any day before St. Patrick’s Day. Please make sure to visit fellow hoppers. If you would like to add something to the  main giveaway, please notify me with a comment. All participants are welcome to add their own giveaways on their site. Erin Go Bragh!

 So we all love St. Patrick’s Day and the rolling green hills of Ireland. We love the enduring human spirit that characterizes the Irish people. The holiday should be about this:

But instead becomes more about this:

turns into this

But no matter how you celebrate this Celtic holiday, make sure you have some fun this week. Post a favorite Irish ditty, limerick, symbol, saying, picture or recipe. As with the Irish, anything goes.

Within Reach is the story of Emma, a woman coming to terms with her mother’s increasing dementia and the everyday challenges associated with it.  Inexplicably, she finds herself ‘re-living’ specific events from her past.  She soon wonders if her own sanity is slipping, and only her mother can help find the key.

    I love travelling to Ireland because everyone there is so friendly and speaks English.

    • Oh, I agree. My girlfriend and I were trying to find the prison by foot because we were told it was just a ‘wee bit’ down the road. (I learned that could mean 5 miles!) An older gent on a bike stopped, told us we looked bedraggled and helped us not only find the prison but invited us to a pub for a pint afterwards. Great memories.

  2. Neat blog hop. Never been to Ireland, though – so I’ll have to “live vicariously” via all the posts from this blog hop.

    • I live vicariously all the time, Susan. But I have visited and will return with my hubby and sister. The next time I will rent a cottage and skip the bus tour.

  3. Deb

    I would love to go to Ireland.

    • It is absolutely gorgeous. Everything you see on television but better. That goes for the landscape and the people. I went in 2000 and can’t wait to go back again.

  4. Trix

    I love the literature, music, and accents!

    • Oh me too. I’m getting out my CD’s in preparation for next week. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I want to go to Ireland.

    • Hi Sky,
      Thanks for dropping in. You’ll never regret the trip. An afternoon in a laundromat turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Gossip in Gaelic is so much more romantic.
