“I love the stories, history and recipes you share! I may try my hand at making some Irish soda bread for St Patrick's Day. My mother has always made shepherd's pie, and we all love it, as well as cabbage and onions. I'll try to make that whole meal Sunday, and we'll celebrate our Irish heritage in style! Thank you for sharing Irish education and good food. Please keep up the good work!”

Valorie, USAMarch 2024

“LOVE being a part of this group! During the Great Famine my grandfather’s parents fled Eire along with so many others. Strangely enough, they went to what was then Russia (now Ukraine) - no one knows why. Then in 1916 they again fled - this time to America! Those events are known in my mother’s family as “Irish Luck”. Anyway, my mother instilled in me a love of the Irish and Irish culture so am thrilled to have found your group!”
