Please join me in celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture!
Born here at Small-leaved Shamrock on November 6, 2007, we are sixteen editions strong and looking forward to the upcoming 17th edition. A special thank-you to all of our 64 contributors thus far, particularly you regulars that frequent the carnival. (You know who you are!)
We have touched on many topics since we began two years ago.
From Irish genealogical research (and more Irish genealogical research) and our ancestral homes in Ireland to the concept of Irish identity ~
From Irish places (and Irish vacations) to Irish surnames ~
From Irish culture and tradition (even superstitions) to the Irish language ~
From recommended books (and more books) to our own stories (and more of our own stories) of Ireland and the Irish ~
We've covered many topics and had lots of fun along the way. (Make a visit to our 1st and 2nd St. Patrick's Day parade editions to join in some of the fun!)
As we celebrate this 2nd anniversary of this carnival celebrating the culture and heritage of the Emerald Isle, we hope you'll take some time to read over our previous editions and also plan to join us with your own submission for an upcoming edition.
If you have ideas for topics that you'd like to see covered here at the carnival, or are interested in hosting an edition, please let us know.
Thanks again for reading. Be sure to stop by the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture blog where you can find links to all past editions, info about the upcoming edition, links to all of our past contributors' blogs and more.
