Ireland is where strange tales begin and happy
endings are possible. ~ Charles Haughey

Did You Know...The Emerald Isle aka Ireland

*~ 73% of Americans are unable to locate Ireland on a map bereft of country names.

*~ The song “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” synonymous with Ireland and all things Irish, was written by two Americans, Graff and Olcott, in 1912. There are no records to show that they ever even visited Ireland.

*~ The guillotine was used by the Irish 500 years before the French adopted it.

*~ At the Olympics, boxing is Ireland's most successful sport.

*~ Ireland has had its own Olympics since the Bronze Age, called the Tailteann Games.

*~ Ireland is the only country in the world which has a musical instrument, the harp, as their national symbol. The oldest known harp in existence is housed in Trinity College, Dublin. It dates back from at least 1300.

*~ The original Guinness Brewery in Dublin has a 9,000 year lease on it's property, at a perpetual rate of 45 Irish pounds per year.

*~ Drisheen is a type of pudding made from cows, pigs or sheep blood. White pudding is a mixture of pork, cereal, bread, fat and suet. Periwinkles are sea snails boiled in salted water.

*~ The longest place name in Ireland is Muckanaghederdauhaulia.

*~ The average height of an Irish man is 5' 8"; women is 5'5".

*~ Only 9% of the Irish population are natural redheads.

*~ The Irish flag was designed to reflect the country’s political situation.  The orange stripe represents Irish Protestants, green is for Irish Catholics and white is for the hope that peace might eventually be reached between them. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
