Ireland has a predominantly Catholic population. The religion is understood to have been brought to Ireland in the early fifth century by the country’s patron saint, St. Patrick. Prior to the introduction of Christianity, the Irish people had a very different belief system of which little is now known.
The Irish are well known around the world for their way with words, sometimes referred to as the Gift of the Gab.
Need to experience something real? Touch something that is older then everything you know? There is a need in most of us to place ourselves in history. Stand in a stone ruin, carved by hand by people who had families, told stories and had their own ambitions and needs.
The Irish people dance and sing when they have something to celebrate, or even when they have nothing to celebrate. This, of course, is not a new phenomenon.
Ireland is home to the fastest ball game in the world and to most who have had the privilege of playing or even just watching it will agree.
