The 5th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture will honor the beauty of the Irish language with a focus on Irish Gaelic names and words.
- Has the charm of the name of a place in Ireland always called to you to visit someday?
- As a child did you secretly wish you had the Irish name of a great-grandparent instead of the name you were born with?
- Do you have a story to tell about someone with an Irish surname?
- Is there an Irish proverb that you have always loved to let slide off of your tongue in its original language?
Join us for the 5th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture. The only prerequisite is that your post must tie in with our focus on the Irish Gaelic language.
Posts for this edition of the carnival are due April 27. Submit your entries here. The carnival will be posted at A light that shines again on St. Ciarán's Day, April 30. (Well, one of the St. Ciarán's days - there are actually 14 in the calendar of Irish saints. Now there's one popular Irish Gaelic name!)
Hope you'll join us for a celebration of Gaeilge!
If you haven't yet done so, don't forget to read the 2008 St. Patrick's Day edition of the carnival.
Until we meet again:
Slán agus beannacht leat!
Good-bye and blessings on you!
