Ireland in 10 pictures

2002-2012
Ten years in Ireland in ten pictures.
(Note: the pictures of the first few years might be less in quality as
I took them with a normal camera instead of a digital one)

  1. When I think of Ireland, I think of how beautiful it is… I have never been except through photos and movies, and music, especially ballads and – excuse my lack of knowledge – the original Celtic language, Gaelic (which I do not understand but it is beautiful -I am so glad that it is still honored and alive!). I love the ancient pagan culture and icons as well… Glad to have found you through another Irishman’s blog – darraghmoore! Be well, sister…

    1. Thank you for the kind post Diane! Ireland is indeed beautiful; sadly not the way it used to be anymore because of the Celtic Tiger economic boom, the rise of apartment buildings and housing estates everywhere and the way Dublin turned into just another European country, but it is still Ireland at its core. Friendly. Talkative and always happy. The Gaelic language is dying out, it’s estimated that only about 20000 people still speak it daily in the west of Ireland, especially on the Aran Islands. Despite Gaelic being the official language, it is English that is spoken everywhere, and Gaelic only still is in small communities in the west.
