    Thought I'd set up a thread for the Irish amongst us, those with Irish descent, and those just curious and wanting to find out about Ireland. A place to post major Irish news stories and chat about them, and all things Irish in general.

    I'll start. Here's a link for those who are asking "What's Ireland?"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ireland

    And here's a news story.

    Pharmacies pocketed over €300m from State scheme

    I'm part Irish and one day I would love to visit the homeland and get drunk. I am also part German and that side of me yells at me at tells me not to trust the dirty Irishman inside of me.

    I went to Dublin last november. It was awesome. I spent most of my time going to museums/tours, and just walking around the city. It is such a cool city, with tons of cool stuff. I'm taking a history of Ireland post famine class at my university, and it's really fascinating.

    With a name like Casey, what else would I be? :) But I don't want to read about any crooks in Ireland. :mad: I want to imagine it's beautiful and all the people are good and honest. :)

    You could have Irish descent. You could also have English, Scottish, or Welsh descent.
