A brief look at Ireland and her people

About Ireland

An acrostic poem
by Paul McCann

I ts in the emerald of her colour green.

R emembered in history as Dark Roisin.

E rin you are dressed in the mystic of time .

L ove speaks of your beauty in manys a rhyme .

A bout you are stories beyond wealth to hold .

N ow thats why your people are so rich in soul .

D welling is the truth that can't be bought or sold .

There are some other things about Ireland I'd like to write about . Facts and fiction and all are part of this beautiful land where I was born .

Ireland is a divided island of 32 counties.
The republic Ireland has twenty six counties and the north of Ireland has 6.

Modern Ireland is alive with music, poetry, theatre, dance ,and cultural richness.
The Craic as it is known makes the Irish tick .It begins at the break of the day ,
Sure T'is a grand day everyday bursting with shocking surprise . The Irish are the greatest talkers bar none .

At the end of every day in the pubs, pints please as gossip abounds .
Ah t'is a grand night indeed as each individual will warm your heart and fill your ear with the Craic .

A fair skinned race with an infectious well being the Irish will promise you the world .
Then its time gentlemen as another round is ordered then another warning time please gentlemen and another drink is ordered .

Ireland is a sanctuary from life .
Zig zag back through time and you'll discover the magic of Ireland.

Ireland is a place of mysticism ,
fascination, and intrigue .
The magic that is Ireland is unique .
Before Christianity arrived in Ireland
a Celtic spirituality existed .
The early Celts worshipped the creator of life in their surroundings .

Beyond this are the mists of time in Ireland .
Legendary supernatural beings inhabited Ireland and in a time when fairytales existed an endless road to discover the magic of Ireland had just begun .

It is not surprising that the Irish should have a magic way with the spoken word, considering their fertile imaginations. they have been passing proverbs along for generations now.
Each Irish village had a Seanchai, a person whose specialty was recounting memories. There were no written records in olden days. This may account for the many variations in stories. Not every Seanchai had a perfect memory.
Their tales were traditionally told to a group of people gathered around the fire.

The Irish culture is founded all over the world through music and song .
The greatest expot from Ireland is her people who have spanned themselves like a quilt over the earth .'
