Ireland Journal, Part 1


Irish. I am told it is called Irish, not Gaelic, even if the linguists call it Irish Gaelic, because it’s Irish, goddammit.



The song my grandmother used to sing was a terribly mangled version of Did Your Mother Come From Ireland? Grandma liked Bing Crosby. The fact that I have now both kissed the Blarney and visited Killarney would impress her to no end.

    We had that same song of Bing Crosby singing Irish songs. My mother used to sing along (she was a very good singer) and pretend she was Irish. Love the photos!
