About

Old Irish Recipes is best known as a weekly Irish heritage newsletter, website, and social media presence providing recipes, upcoming tradition reminders and context, to help people gain insights into their Irish ancestors and pass on, or reestablish traditions in their own families.

The Project

The Old Irish Recipes Project was created to collect and record our collective Irish heritage in recipes, along with the traditions, folklore and customs that accompanied these.

About Róisín

Róisín Hynes is the writer behind the Old Irish Recipes Newsletter. She is 39, a married, busy mum of two, living in Ireland who enjoys old Irish traditions with her family. She has been known at supper time to meal plan sheep’s brain’s with parsley sauce or fried eels to make her kids laugh. Little do they know their great-grandfather used to catch and eat blackbird when he was their age because he was hungry. Old Irish Recipes started in 2020 in a private FB group and has grown into the newsletter it is today.
