What does it mean to be Irish?

As I learned through my experience writing the 5th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture about the Irish language, Ireland and the Irish mean many things to many people.

What does the Emerald Isle and its heritage and culture mean to you? Share with us your stories about Ireland and what it means to be Irish in the upcoming 6th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture. (Note: An Irish pedigree is not required to participate.)

Posts for this edition of the carnival are due Saturday, May 31, Bank Holiday weekend in Ireland. Submit your entries here. The carnival will be posted here at Small-leaved Shamrock on the actual June Bank Holiday, June 2.

Ireland has been known by so many names and means so many different things to different people. You might know it as:
  • Erin
  • The Emerald Isle
  • Hibernia (as the Romans referred to it)
  • The Land of Saints & Scholars
  • The Silk of the Kine
  • The Old Sod
  • The Poor Old Woman

Hope you'll join us to tell about your own personal experience with and understanding of the land so many love so well.
