Happy Easter from Ireland!

Last Reply by circles 1398307158.94 | Started by Irish Insights in Jewelry Talk, Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities

I remember long ago that as children we painted eggs for Easter. It was great fun to decorate them and even more fun eating them afterwards! Yesterday one of my colleagues painted some eggs – with shamrocks on them, of course – and gave me a few! So, today I boiled them up and enjoyed them for my lunch. We will have a four-day holiday during Easter, and I'm looking forward to a few days of rest, and, fingers crossed, the weather will be nice. Have you any nice Easter memories? I would love to hear them. All the best from Ireland, Stephen     Shop Connemara M... Continue Reading

The Countdown to St. Patrick’s Day is On!

Last Reply by Nadjalu 1393116343.677 | Started by Irish Insights in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News

Looks like spring is arriving in Ireland, and I can't believe there is just one month to go until St. Patrick’s Day! Last evening I hosted a dinner party for my sisters, and it was lovely to get together with them as we don't get to meet all together that often. We had roast duck with potatoes, served with red cabbage and ginger. For this dish, I used the Belleek “Everyday” Baker (H197751), which was just perfect for both baking and serving! A lovely evening was had by all, and when you get us Walsh's together you can hardly get a word in edgeways! Putting the red cabbage... Continue Reading

What is Your Most Favourite Part of the Holiday Season?

Last Reply by jerseynana 1387581872.837 | Started by Irish Insights in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News

Sinead, Solvar Jewellery What is your most favourite part of the holiday season? Mine is the run up to the holidays! And this year has been by far the most exciting! For those of you who don’t know me, I am a mum to 4-year-old twins, Caoimhe and Alannah. The two days I don’t work, I walk them to Irish School and they shout to everyone that passes by “Merry Christmas Eve!” This started December 1st and gradually as the days pass, the excitement builds. Last Friday they had their Christmas Play where they were angels! What a special moment, and I couldn’t help thin... Continue Reading

Preparing for the Holidays!

Started by Irish Insights in Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News 1384550196.533

Here’s another update from some of your favorite people from the Emerald Isle!   Eve, JMH Jewellery Hi, everyone! It’s great to be able to share with you a picture from the lovely day we had on Saturday, November 9th, the day our new daughter Jeanne Elizabeth was christened! It was a beautiful autumn day, crisp and sunny out! Jeanne and her very proud big brother Hugh had a great day, lots of fun with all the family! Jeanne slept for most of the ceremony (which was great!)…her eyes flickered open briefly as if to ask the priest what he was doing when he poured ...

We are counting down to Halloween!

Last Reply by cmmd 1382678026.037 | Started by Irish Insights in Jewelry Talk, In the Garden, Q News

Stephen Walsh, Connemara Marble   The month of October has been lovely and mild in Ireland, and we are counting down to Halloween. Did you know that the festival has its origins in Ireland, and comes from the Celtic festival  of 'Samhan' - marking the end of the Celtic year, and a time when the door to the Outerword opens, when the fairies and the dead can communicate with the living world! And of course it a fun time for children. They will be dressing up and going from house to house for 'trick or treats'! In the meantime there is lots of work to do in the garden, and we had th...
