St Patrick’s Day, Dublin and Belfast

In commemorating St Patrick’s Day check out my IRELAND page. I updated some 2016 video from my trip to Dublin. Where at the time the nation was celebrating 100 years of independence from the British. Hard to think these folks sympathize more with the Palestinians than the British due to the oppression they both endured in their own land. It was quite eye opening to hear during my tour to BELFAST where the ‘Wall’ is located (yeah is not a new idea). Is not to keep people out but so they don’t have to look at each other, hate runs deep. However after Brexit they may have to put an official one, smh.

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh! (Happy St. Patrick’s Day) – yep English is not the official language of The Republic of Ireland is Irish Gaelic which has more in common with Scotland as they were both untouched by the Romans. It allowed them to keep their culture and language which is a very important part of any culture. Until the British Empire expanded and subjugated them both. I was a bit of a British cheerleader till I visited IRELAND and watched OUTLANDER. Don’t laugh it is a documentary as much as a steamy drama.

 

Must do in Ireland stop by the Guinness Brewery. Learned how to pour, a backup plan if my MBA becomes useless. The history of getting drunk on Guinness. Well in their defense Guinness has been around longer than the Republic. The government had to ask Guinness for permission to use the harp which is the symbol of Ireland and on the Euro. Very separate and distinct than Northern Ireland. The beer was given in hospital for medicinal purposes. I have some in fridge, you know incase on an emergency. LOL

You can’t go to Ireland just for the history their country side is breath taking. Believe the sheep outnumber the humans in some sections. The Emerald Isle is it nickname and right in it’s a different type of green. Did their top attractions the Cliffs of Moher, Giant’s Causeway, the Guinness Factory, Dublinia (Viking Irish), Dublin Castle and Rope Bridge. Did I mention I was there for a whole week about 9 nights?! Originally was there in 2008 as a stopover did a day of sightseeing knew I had to comeback.
