Look at me! I made the Long List for Blog Awards Ireland 2014!
You probably remember me
begging asking nicely if you cared to nominate the blog in the Diaspora category.
The Long List of Diaspora Blogs is here.
The Diaspora category is sponsored by The Irish Dairy Board.
This is ironic, or cruel, or both: it simply reminds me that living outside of Ireland it is next to impossible to get proper milk.
Because I am nominated in the Diaspora category, I think it’s apt to repost some of my Diasporational posts.
Like this biography of character actress Una O’Connor.
Or this story about the man from Sligo who taught Churchill the art of oratory.
Or this story about the blind Irish fiddler on the Bounty.
