Spotted This Week – Irish Soccer Fans, Dip-In-The-Nip, Irish Slang, Bill Clinton And More
Here’s your chance to read some of the things that I enjoyed during breaks between the chaos this week.
I’m always on the hunt for great Irish recipes on the web. Something to remind me of home, and something to add a bit of variety to the Got Ireland family dining table. Elizabeth, over at WeeKitchen.com, has put together some really tasty looking recipes. Take a look at her Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Pork Sausages, complete with mouth watering pictures, directions and ingredients. I’ll be trying them this weekend – you should too!
To put it mildly, the Irish soccer team didn’t have a whole lot of success at this years Euro 2012 competition in Poland/Ukraine. However, just like so many times in the past, our fans have given a great account of themselves. They supported the team fabulously and sang their hearts out throughout each game. Here, you can enjoy pictures of Irish fans at soccer tournaments throughout the years, including Japan in 2002 and Euro ’88 in West Germany.
Everyone loves a good cause, right? Well these brave folk bared all at Irish beaches around the country, to benefit cancer research by taking a dip-in-the-nip. Not exactly how I would contribute, but all for a good cause.
Here’s a fun read (and a delicious recipe) from An American In Ireland, on what she has noticed about the verbal habits of the Irish.
Bill Clinton Was Strolling These Streets This Past Week
President Bill Clinton Visits Cork
Bill Clinton was in Ireland this past week, and took a stroll around Cork’s city streets, including St. Patrick’s Street. He met with a few locals and even popped in to a couple of bookstores to do a spot of shopping.
The former U.S. president also took some time out to ‘crash’ the Cork wedding of an Irish/American couple. Hopefully he bought them a drink
I’ve been contributing to an exciting new Irish travel website over the past few weeks. The website is quickly becoming a great resource for visitors looking for less traveled areas in Ireland. Here, you can browse my “off-the-beaten-path” travel tips on the Ireland Travel Kit, including my most recent recommendation of Fort Camden in Crosshaven, County Cork.
