  5. 5. Teaching, Ireland Historical Did you know that in Ireland, a long time ago, it was against the law under English rule for an Irish man or woman to be a teacher? But, the Irish have always had a love of learning, so they did whatever they could to educate their children. They created secret places where teachers could teach their students in safety. These became known as "Hedge Schools" because they were often tucked away under hedges in the countryside. Other secret places were under ruined walls, in dry ditches by the roadside, or in old barns. Most of these schools didn't have books, paper or pencils, so the children learned their lessons by listening to the teacher and then repeating the words of Click

If these are some of the questions you are asking yourself, you are not alone. A broken heart can cause such an intense reaction that many of us feel our lives have been completely stripped of meaning. Jobs, hobbies, and friends no longer hold any joy for us.

Capitol on Maryland Avenue on what now is part of the Mall, her house, a three-story structure nearly the size of a city block, included parlors, an elegant dining room and, almost assuredly, the most attractive of the city’s estimated 5,000 “soiled doves.” Prostitution was not a crime in the 19th century, and any concentration of troops during the Civil War attracted flocks of “camp followers” who were Click

 available for a price. Women often would show up after battles and offer their services to the generals as nurses. The “nursing,” however, frequently became an open door to those less honest and caring, and when armies experienced theft, prostitution and other less traditional forms of nursing, generals sometimes rejected offers of female help. The slang word for prostitute, hooker, is generally thought to have originated during the Civil War. For generations, rumors claimed that Union Gen. “Fighting Joe” Hooker had inspired the nickname by his amorous relationships. 07/10/10

  9. 9. Flintstones Hollywood, USA 1960-1966 The Flintstones is an animated American television sitcom that ran from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC. Produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, The Flintstones is about a working class Stone Age man's life with his family and his next door neighbor and best friend. Critics and fans alike agree that the show was an animated imitation of The Honeymooners with rock puns thrown in. William Hanna admitted that "At that time "The Honeymooners" was the most popular show on the air, and for my bill, it was the funniest show on the air. The characters, I thought, were terrific. Now, that Click

 influenced greatly what we did with "The Flintstones"...."The Honeymooners" was there, and we used that as a kind of basis for the concept." However Joseph Barbera disavowed these claims in a separate interview, stating that "I don't remember mentioning "The Honeymooners" when I sold the show, but if people want to compare "The Flintstones" to "The Honeymooners," then great. It's a total compliment. "The Honeymooners" was one of the greatest shows ever written."[1] Its popularity rested heavily on its juxtaposition of modern-day concerns in the Stone Age setting.[2][3] . 07/10/10

The seancaithe and scéalaí, the Tradition Bearers and Storytellers, passed the old stories down through the generations. Today, in the 21st Century, there has been a revival of the ancient art. Founded in 2003, Storytellers of Ireland / Aos Scéal Éireann is an All-Ireland voluntary organisation with Charitable Status. Our aim is to promote the practice, study and knowledge of oral storytelling in Ireland through the preservation and perpetuation of traditional storytelling and the development of storytelling as a contemporary art. We aim to foster storytelling skills among all age groups, from all cultural backgrounds. We also aim to Click

 explore new contexts for storytelling in public places – in schools, community centres and libraries, in care centres and prisons, in theatres, arts centres and at festivals throughout the entire island of Ireland. Storytelling is an intimate and interactive art. A storyteller tells from memory rather than reading from a book. A tale is not just the spoken equivalent of a literary short story. It has no set text, but is endlessly re- create in the telling. The listener is an essential part of the storytelling process. For stories to live, they need the hearts, minds and ears of listeners. Without the listener there is no story. 07/10/10

The unfolding controversy has been reported by our Western Correspondent, Lorna Siggins, ever since.

SUPT JOE GANNON was assigned to Belmullet, in Co Mayo, in July 2006. Later that autumn he described a scene that resembled a conflict zone at Ballinaboy, where Shell was trying to build a terminal to bring gas ashore from its Corrib field, 80km offshore. The Click

 entrance to the site had been “blocked for a year and a half”, and “local people had a veto on who went in and out”. The Garda’s remit was to ensure there were no arrests and no “martyrs”. At Shell’s compound at Rossport anyone arriving in a jeep, whether or not they were from the oil company, would be “surrounded by these locals and their cars, and questioned for anything up to three- quarters of an hour”, he told Garda Review magazine. “I felt that it was time to take the ground back, as is my responsibility as the district officer . . .

Shannon was with the band for eighteen months, and contributed both accordion and fiddle to their Room to Roam album. Her first world tour was with The Waterboys. Like Wickham, she left the group when Scott and group member Anthony Thistlethwaite wanted to move the band back to a more rock and roll sound. 07/10/10

  17. 17. Conversation Ireland Ongoing Irish generally prefer direct eye contact. People who avoid eye contact may not be perceived as trustworthy. The Irish are enthusiastic conversationalists and debaters. A wide range of topics may be open to discussion, including religion and politics. The best policy, however, is to wait for your Irish companions to bring up these two subjects; be prepared to hear very strong and often confrontational opinions and be aware that both subjects are highly contentious in Ireland due to the country's history of invasion [see Introduction to Ireland]. The Irish find arguments and opinionated conversation entertaining, so don't hesitate to express your views if Click

 they are sincere and informed. If they're not, you could be seen to be arrogant. The Irish are extremely proud of their history and expect visitors--particularly the English--to appreciate their years of suffering, conflict and victory as a Republic. If you are English, be prepared sometimes for a frosty welcome, though this can usually be overcome with sincerity and good conversation. The Irish do not stand for arrogance of any kind! 07/10/10

  18. 18. Story through pictures Ireland Past and present Ireland has been inhabited since 8000 BC when the climate had become more hospitable following the retreat of the polar icecaps of the latest ice age. Celtics started coming to the island in the 6th century BC, where language and cultural exchanges were made in Ireland. In the year 432 AD, St. Patrick arrived and transformed Irish society by introducing the Roman alphabet, and by converting the Irish to Christianity. Ireland was invaded by the Vikings in the 8th century AD who remained for two hundred years. It was the Vikings who founded Dublin in the year 988.

 many areas remained in Irish hands until the 16th century. A great famine occurred in Ireland between the years 1845 and 1847. During that time 1.5 million Irish died, and about one million emigrated to the United States, France, Switzerland and Canada. In 1922, 26 Catholic counties of Ireland gained independence from the United Kingdom. The remaining six counties remained in the UK and became Northern Ireland, which was mostly Protestant. 07/10/10

  19. 19. Storytelling Worldwide Ongoing Since people began to communicate with each other, "Tell me a story" has been a request of both children and adults. Storytelling is one person telling others of something. The story can be of a real event or it can be made up. Storytelling is often a part of our everyday conversations. It is one of the earliest forms of folkart, it probably first consisted of simple chants that praised the dawn, expressed the joy of being alive, and were used to ease the drudgery and boredom of laborious tasks. Later the storyteller became the community entertainer by combining their stories with poetry, music, and dance. The storyteller also evolved into the group historian. Click

 This was the beginning of professional storytelling Storytelling during the Middle Ages was expanded into the art of the traveling troubadour, who journeyed across the land. They were welcomed in castle, court, and market place. They gathered the news, conveyed the best tales, and were expected to know the favorites in each region. The invention of moveable type and the development of the print publishing business led to reading replacing listening, and the decline of storytelling.. 07/10/10

 that they also sell shoes in large sizes and wide fittings. Similarly to their clothes, sizes are generous, so if you usually take a size 9, an 8 may do you here. Wide sizes are marked 9W etc. Not all branches do shoes, and there is not a huge selection in those that do. The Henry Street branch stocks most of the range as far as I know. Prices are not great considering the quality and the sterling conversion is dodgy, but in the last sale, I picked up 2 pairs for less than € 30! 07/10/10

  52. 52. TCD Dublin, Ireland, 2010 SCIENTISTS at Trinity College Dublin have discovered how two proteins interact to guide connections between brain cells. The proteins were known to be involved in brain wiring, and the Trinity and Oxford study has now identified how they bind in order to tell brain cells to avoid connecting with each other. Understanding how brain cells make connections is important, according to one of the study’s authors, Dr Kevin Mitchell, a senior lecturer at the Smurfit Institute of Genetics and the Institute of Neuroscience at TCD.
