The Irish

Message Bookmarked

I am about as Irish as a Shamrock Shake, thanks to my Euromongrel background, but I have roots on both mom and dad's side and my family name derives from a town in County Kilkenny, so hey. Then there's our own Miss Kearney, of course. ;-) But above and beyond that and other folks like Ronan, there's the nation itself, where the list of Irish (and Anglo-Irish, true) artists in many fields runs on forever, regrettable interruptions like, say, Bono aside. So then -- a bunch of Guinness-soaked louts or a flowering of native Celtic genius that makes the English look like a passel of Hooray Henrys and who wisely escaped the UK's clutches to help make America the brilliant place it is?

I spent a week in Ireland (2 days in Northern Ireland, the remainder in the Republic) six years ago, and it was fabulous. Rented a car in Belfast and drove all over the place, ending up in Dublin. Sunny for 4 days out of the 7, too, which the locals said made me very lucky.

My favorite Ireland memory: driving up the Conor Pass on the Dingle Peninsula, parking the car and hiking up a mountain. The view of the countryside, the ponds, the sheep and the sea was breathtaking, of course. But what was really remarkable was just how quiet it all was -- I could hear the grass crunching under my feet and I thought I was stepping on dried out grass, till I realized that it sounded so loud only because it was so quiet. I'd literally never "heard" silence like that before. I realized then how really loud even "quiet" moments are where I live, how there's always some sort of ambient noise in the background disrupting the perfect quiet. And then you just stand there, with the knockout view in the closest thing to perfect peace and quiet I'd ever experienced. Then you walk down and throw some money at the person playing some cliche Irish music on a harp at the foot of the hill.

Specifically, I'd recommend Planxty's 2004 (or is it 2005? I can't remember) live album, which is brilliant and has Christy Moore singing on it. Any one of the first four Chieftains albums are also top class. Martin Hayes is also very popular and good, and there's a great, great singer called Iarla O Lionaird who sings unaccompanied Irish songs. His voice is beautiful, but it can get a little wearing after a while if you don't understand what he's singing about.

he is famous enough, but maybe not as famous as he deserves to be. He plays live a lot in Whelans, and every time I go to see him I kick myself for not going to see him every time he plays, as he is awesome.

In a piece of inspired supportage, the first time I saw him was when he was supporting Will Oldham; a whole new generation of fans was born.

He is awesome. Everything I've ever heard him do, from Sweeney's Men onwards, has been great, and he always seems like the most talented and yet least well known in whatever setup he's involved in.

CINCINNATI -- A man was caught Tuesday morning inside a car with his pants down.

Police said Kim Leblanc broke into a parked car overnight on Central Parkway, and the owner found him asleep inside and called police.

Officers said Leblanc was not wearing any pants when they arrived.

Investigators said Leblanc told them he had done drugs and believed that a leprechaun had let him into the car.

Leblanc remains in police custody on a variety of charges.

Thieving Irish. Here's something funny: I'm American, and my grandfather raised us to be conscious of our Irish heritage. We just find out our Irish side actually came from England ... and had lived there for centuries before coming to the US, rather than actually coming here from Ireland during the potato/weird root tasting beer/cable knit sweater famine.

So what's the deal with that - English, Irish, what? I'm sure most of the people who claim Irish heritage here are less of Irish heritage than suspected.

besides i suppose the usual demographic slide 'it'll happen eventually' idea which has always been around i guess. i mean even reading the stuff today about the anti-eu irish republicans is fairly disturbing. so many things feel like a roll of the dice at the moment.

I might be stretching to its limits my ability to be that prick, but it did seem to me that the 'dignified and appropriate' was her head skipping a line, like "these deaths were an exception to the vast majority of our brave boys which etc etc". But the "not crimes" should get her sacked anyway.

In a way (not really) it's good to have as something to point at for "This is why Europe and specifically RoI feel they need a structure to make sure that the UK actually finishes its homework on NI"

the question of how to safeguard unionism is key

Yeah, I'd been saying (possibly on ILX, but I can't find it), that some kind of truth & reconciliation committee would seem necessary. It's be an interesting test of Ireland's view of itself. I talked to a friend who's lived in Portrush for a few years (and has family in the North), and he said that he would not expect this to work at all - that when it comes to closed-loop worldviews, the average DUP voter makes a Fox News viewer look like a wide-eyed gap student.

Andrew Farrell, Friday, 8 March 2019 13:14 (two weeks ago) Permalink

tbh i'm so much more sympathetic to, say, Arlene Foster, whose resentments seem somewhat justified by traumatic formative experiences like her father being taken out of their house and shot when she was a child than to Theresa May whose seething resentment of immigrants seems entirely fostered by having grown up sealed off from people of colour and from disadvantaged backgrounds. There are lots of people in Northern Ireland who grew up witnessing some heinous shit and in comparison the collective temper-tantrum of so many priveliged middle class brexit voters who lived through the most generous period of the welfare state seems a very false equivalence for the media to draw, and is never really registered in media discussions of the DUP-Tory marriage of convenience.

That Gavin Williamson statement is just repulsive, I’m still angry about it.

It’s just so disgusting, I thought I’d been angry about this but the stuff coming from the British government about this is sick making.

https://www.rte.ie/news/2019/0314/1036367-blood-sunday-reaction/

In a statement following the decision by Northern Ireland’s Public Prosecution Service to charge one former British soldier with the murder of civilians on Bloody Sunday in 1972, the Ministry said the British government will urgently reform the system for dealing with legacy issues.

The UK’s Defence Secretary said the individual affected by the ruling will be offered full legal support.

Gavin Williamson confirmed the Ministry of Defence would support 'soldier F' and pay the legal costs.


This isn’t a great look either, but then I guess a crowdfunded supported by the far right wouldn’t be either. Just in case you were wondering who was behind the myths being spread about like so much shit.
