Irish Language, Irish Music and Tasty Food

In my travels around the web I often find things I want to share. I don’t mean your usual viral cat videos but stuff that interest me. I have not tried this recipe but enjoyed the video.

I remember as a child thinking the Irish language was on it’s last legs. But it has shown an incredible resilience thanks to a new generation who have just refused to let it die. Follain is a preserve company based in West Cork and they produced this video. I love the unusual presentation and wanted to share. Sit back and enjoy, even if you never make the food the photography and music make it worthwhile.

And just to show the Irish language take a look at the kids of Colaiste Lurgan doing a version of Lorde’s Royals as Gaeilge  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unnqtwfy10U
