Birth announcement!

The Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture has arrived and is calling for entries. If you have a blog about your own Irish genealogy or about Irish heritage and culture in general, you are invited to participate.

Our first edition will be about something everybody loves: a good story. What is your favorite Irish story? Show us that you've got the gift of blarney. Here's the specific request:

Of all of the colorful Irish characters that you've learned about throughout your search for family history or your study of Irish heritage in general, surely you've come across some good stories. Share your favorite story about an Irish ancestor or other Irishman or Irishwoman with us on this, the inaugural edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture.

I'm looking forward to receiving your entries by November 19 and publishing the 1st edition of our Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture on November 22 here at Small-leaved Shamrock. Even if you've never participated in a blog carnival before, please consider giving it a try. Hope you'll join us! In the mean time, may God bless you: Go mbeannaí Dia duit!

You know I just hate this topic! It made me realize that I don't have a single Irish story, true or created, from my family history. And my family is three-quarters Irish! Unfortunately, stories were not passed down.

Can't wait to read others' stories, though!

Join us anyway! I've discovered some good stories through records - stories that were never passed down through the family. The topic for this carnival, however, includes not only stories about our particular ancestors, but about Irish people and Irish heritage in general. Feel free to post about any good Irish story, within your family or not. Hope you'll join us!

Hi Lisa,

Would an article on an Irish history book be acceptable for this carnival?



Lisa / Smallest Leaf said...

Thanks for your interest in the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture, Jessica. We welcome your article: it fits under the Irish stories category of the "study of Irish heritage in general".

Our hope for this carnival is that it would help us to encourage further interest in Irish heritage and culture through genealogy, history and traditions.

Please join us! I'm looking forward to reading your entry, if you choose to participate.
