This Page was great, while it lasted, but it will soon disappear, to be replaced by
a whole directory of fun and interesting stuff. In other words, the content collected
has far exceeded any reasonable size for just one page. The whole site has been redesigned
and this page will shortly be overtaken by a huge, gleaming new MONSTER of a thing.
Thanks for dropping by... Oh... Check out our NEW areas by clicking
here! and following the links to penpals, discussions,
news, and classifieds!
p.s. Even though the images aren't working, you should still be able to purchase
and/or view the Irish books listed here, including the Irish dictionary, which
is our #1 item!! :)

When I started researching Irish celebrities, I only expected to have around 10, or 20 at the most. Unfortunately, it didn't work like that, since I discovered that almost everyone in the entertainment
business is connected in some way. That's nice if yer Irish.. but it's a real pain for a webmaster, cos I now have literally thousands of celebrities to research, and progress is painfully slow! :)
Aw, sure, wha'harm anyways! Hopefully they'll start sending me stuff, rather than me having to scope them out. :-)
In the meantime, scuse the terrible mess that this page has become. There's only one of me, against an awful lot of data!

- We Invented Tornados too, Apparently
I hopped over to visit the BBC over in the UK, and they told me this: "The earliest-known tornado occurred in 1054 near Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath, in Ireland. It is often difficult to be certain that early accounts describe tornadoes and not more widespread gales or storms, although some chronicles - the main source of early tornado reports - are comprehensive in their accounts."
Pretty soon, they'll probably be selling it in Dublin Airport Tourist Shop. :-)
