Back to school for the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture!

Fall is approaching and that means the beginning of the school year is nearing once again. It is a time of fresh air, fresh starts and new beginnings. In the spirit of the season of Autumn, please join us for the Back to School edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture.

Have Irish heritage in your family history? Make a plan to further investigate the Irish side of your family tree and share your goals with us. Here are some ideas:

  • Work back a few more generations on one branch of your Irish family tree

  • Find naturalization papers that give the county of origin for an immigrant ancestor

  • Find the townland in Ireland where your immigrant ancestor was born

  • Get in touch with other relatives who share the same Irish genealogy
Instead of (or in addition to) focusing on genealogy, want to learn more about Irish heritage or culture in general? Choose a topic or task that interests you, and let us know how you plan to learn more about it this coming year. Give one of these a try:

  • Take up Irish baking

  • Learn more about and enjoy Celtic music

  • Take up or set out to watch Irish dance

  • Learn the Irish language

  • Plan a trip to Ireland or a place where Irish culture resides

Set some goals for the new school year and share them with us, whether you've begun working on them or not. Hopefully we will all inspire eachother in our quest for Irish family history and in our attempts to make the culture of Ireland more a part of our lives.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, September 22. Submit your entry here. The carnival will be published here at Small-leaved Shamrock on Thursday, September 25. Hope you'll join us! Start setting your goals now and get those school supplies ready!

If you haven't yet read the 7th edition of our carnival, Looking into the heart of Ireland, please do so. Toward the end of the carnival is a list of all past editions for you to enjoy. Happy reading!
