Lovely shot of the Pub in Dublin.
Hi everyone, since I love to travel. I chose Ireland after seeing movies about Michael Collin and I love their accent too! So here are my reasons on why Ireland is my dream destination.

The Landscape

I absolutely love the landscape, because it is so green and clean. You hardly see anything unpleasant and spoil, it's all pleasant and full of luck!
In fact, I would love to stay in the Irish countryside and walk while listening to Irish music.

Irish Music & Dancing

I have been a fan of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, their dance are very, VERY energetic while the music is very catchy that you can't stop the beat as they say! So, I would love to listen to them and watch them dance.

Friendly Faces

Now, don't get me wrong, I have some Irish friends and I'm very proud of the fact that Ireland has many friendly faces! It makes their country feel like home towards their tourists and expatriates alike.

THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

Here's up the rebels, get back our teddy's head
Her face and tail are all her own
But her brains are foreign led
On the outskirts of Europe in Atlantic so dear
There's a country called old Ireland
That looks like a teddy bear
It's an island that splits in two
With the border in her head
Her face and tail are all her own
But her brains are foreign led

Her face is o'er in Donegal
Her brains are in Belfast
Her arms outstretched in Galway
For her friends that do go past
Her hair is on the north coast
In Derry, Antrim, Down
I'm sure this head would be better off
Without the bloody crown

Her backbone's on the east coast
From Dublin to Dundalk
Her legs and feet in Kerry
They have shoes that never walked
Her backside's in Cork and Wexford
Her heart in Midlands
Where facing towards America
With her head to England

So listen proud Britannia

We'll sing a song, a soldier's song,
With cheering rousing chorus,
As round our blazing fires we throng,
The starry heavens o'er us;
Impatient for the coming fight,
And as we wait the morning's light,
Here in the silence of the night,
We'll chant a soldier's song.

Chorus:
Soldiers are we
whose lives are pledged to Ireland;
Some have come
from a land beyond the wave.
Sworn to be free,
No more our ancient sire land
Shall shelter the despot or the slave.
Tonight we man the gap of danger
In Erin's cause, come woe or weal
'Mid cannons' roar and rifles peal,
We'll chant a soldier's song.

In valley green, on towering crag,
Our fathers fought before us,
And conquered 'neath the same old flag
That's proudly floating o'er us.
We're children of a fighting race,
That never yet has known disgrace,
And as we march, the foe to face,

Be thankful. We have to learn this!
Some of you who have ever been to Ireland will know that a lot of Gaelic is to be found. And it can confuse and frighten even the most seasoned traveller. Even if they do possess a guidebook and an Irish-_______ dictionary.

So that’s where Dazls Guide To Really Really Really Really Obscure Irish comes in.

Céili- If you see a sign advertising a céili, and you are in a mood to boogie, take note. A céili is a dance- but not just any old type of dance. It’s traditional Irish dancing, where amateurs and professionals can dance and hear traditional music at the same time. Popular dances include ‘The Haymakers Jig’, ‘The Siege of Ennis’ and ‘Shoe the Donkey’. Be prepared though- wear comfortable clothing and shoes, because this is very energetic and you’ll be sweating buckets by the end of the first dance. Most céilis are quite open to beginners, so go along for a laugh.

Craic- There are several uses of this word, so remember to look at it in the proper context.

The Irish National Anthem
Amhrán na bhFiann - Irish
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CURFA (refrain, chorus) :
Sinne Fianna Fáil
Atá fé gheall ag Éirinn,
buion dár slua
Thar toinn do ráinig chugainn,
Fé mhóid bheith saor.
Sean tír ár sinsear feasta
Ní fhágfar fé'n tiorán ná fé'n tráill
Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil,
Le gean ar Ghaeil chun báis nó saoil
Le gunni scréach fé lámhach na bpiléar
Seo libh canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Soldier's Song - English Translation:
(Soldiers are we
whose lives are pledged to Ireland;
Some have come
from a land beyond the wave.
Sworn to be free,
No more our ancient sire land
Shall shelter the despot or the slave.
Tonight we man the gap of danger
In Erin's cause, come woe or weal
'Mid cannons' roar and rifles peal,
We'll chant a soldier's song.

The Counties of Ireland
This is humour. I have no intent to insult any of the 26 ROI counties. Unless you're not from Cork. Then you're fair game.


Carlow = Mad for sugar beet, can't get enough of it.
Hobbies: Growing sugar beet.

Cavan = filthy, ignorant hillbillies, tight. Hobbies:
discovering IRA ammo dumps and knitting black balaclavas.

Clare = fiddle-playing charming people and, more recently, fine footballers.
Hobbies:
Falling into pot-holes and being
never heard from ever again, setting up golf courses in their back lawns.

Cork = the loveable rogues of Ireland. Here for everyone else's entertainment.
Hobbies:
Milking cows, being European capital of culture 2005 but not knowing what exactly that means or how they got it boy?

Donegal = away in their own world up there, not much known about this eccentric type.
Hobbies:
Stripping the Irish coast of fishies, running back up to their corner of the island and blaming the spanish....aye twas the spanish!!
