The 3rd Edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture is Posted

Lisa at Small-leaved Shamrock has just posted the 3rd edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture. It's no coincidence that today is also St. Brigid's Day, who is second only to St. Patrick as one of the most revered saints in Ireland. In honor of St. Brigid's Day and all things Irish, nine participants have written 11 articles about their favorite real or fictional places in Ireland. My own post is about my ancestral home of Letterkenny, County Donegal, a place I'd love to visit someday. I hope you take an hour or so to enjoy your armchair travels to the Emerald Isle!

Lisa invites all of you to join her in the 4th edition of the Carnival, with the following details: "Whether you go traveling or not, plan to take a trip with us on the next Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture: the 4th edition.

"Here's the scoop:

March is Irish heritage month in many places, thanks to the feast day of St. Patrick, beloved saint of Ireland. Our topic for this month will be anything and everything about Irish heritage, genealogy and culture. Posts about St. Patrick will be appreciated, but posts related to any meaningful aspect of Ireland's heritage are welcomed. To borrow an idea from Bill West's genealogy parade, we'll have our very own virtual St. Patrick's Day parade!

"The deadline is March 14, 2008. Submit your parade entry here. Then come join us for the parade on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2008. On the feast of St. Patrick, everyone likes to be Irish, at least for one day. Hope to see you at the parade wearing your green!"
