The Month Of The Irish

The Month of March
is a time of transition
as most of us switch from a long cold winter
into beautiful sunny warm spring weather.

It is a month that we look forward to seeing GREEN.
Whether we are Irish or's also
a month that makes us think
of Ireland.

From thatched roof cottages...

Internet the wonderful Irish music and dance.

Irish Barns.

Wonderful Irish traditional dishes 
such as the Colcannon below...

...and Irish Stew.

Irish Soda Bread

More Irish Cottages

And of course the Traditional Irish Music.

I'd LOVE to learn to play the bodhran (Irish drum)!

I've been to an English Pub but not an Irish Pub.
Maybe one day ;)

Yes this is the month of the Irish.
I hope you wear some green this week ;)

La ar doigh agat!
(Have a good day)

Maura :)

First off, I am sorry about your step-mom. It is hard to lose family. I love this post. I especially love the photo with the Border Collie. So pretty. I have never been to an English Pub but if you are ever in my area I would be happy to take you to our St. James Gate Irish Pub. Great food and beer. Have a wonderful Sunday, Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

Oh Maura--these pictures are beautiful and bring back wonderful memories for me. I can tell you I’ve been to several Irish pubs and there is nothing like it on earth. They have little fireplaces with burning sod that I think smells so wonderful. They are often, dark and made of stone and you feel the age and history as you sit in the chairs. A pint is a way of life and the people are so jovial and welcoming. I just love Ireland--I could live there in one of these beautiful thatched cottages for sure :)
Great post friend,

Hello Maura
Somehow I missed the post about your step-mom and I'm sorry to hear of her passing.
As for Ireland, I would love to travel there and see if I could trace some of my husband's family. Great photos you found and I've been wearing a shamrock lapel pin for a couple of days now.

Maura I am an Irish gal! I love Colcannon, what's not to love? Your pictures are a treat this morning. I am celebrating with the teeny bit of green that was in our yard yesterday but today it is surprisingly covered with SNOW. Enjoy your day at Lilac Lane Cottage!
