Just a heads-up to all those who haven't yet read it:

thistlerose wrote me a lovely and hilarious little birthday ditty! It's James and Remus in Ireland (DINGLE, specifically! Oh, how happy this makes me....) and it's wonderful with rain and sheep-smell and Guinness -- everyone should go read it and tell her she's a legend! Because she is.

Fadó Fadó (Banphrionsa) [Feb. 17th, 2005|07:41 pm]
Tiocfaidh Ár Fic

This community was brought to my attention when it was created but I haven't thought to post here until someone over at lily_remus pointed out that this place may be helpful to our new challenge, The Ireland Challenge. Well, I thought I should post a link to the one story I spent way to much time on, Fadó Fadó (Banphrionsa). It's first purpose for a user bio went nowhere, but I like it, and wondered if anyone else would. I also have it posted on FanFiction.Net where I promised an entirely English translation, but I thought I'd see what all of you have to say before I degrade my story so that everyone can understand it and fall in love with Ireland, too.

Hi, everyone!

I'm (obviously) new to this community, but I just wanted to introduce myself.

I'm a long-time HP fan, and a lifetime Irish person (well, Irish-American--does that count?), but this is the first time I have ever really combined the two. ;)

So, yay. I look forward to this community--it seems awesome already.

Hullo, all! I thought since it seems that quite a few of you aren't from Ireland, I would maybe post some links to reference sites and such, plus a little info re: provinces and counties.

Hope you find these of use!

Provences and CountiesCollapse )

And, yes. I had way too much fun with that.

ETA: I'm putting together another post about the Troubles, and the history of the conflict in Northern Ireland. I'm trying really hard to find non-biased links, so it may take awhile....

This is fantastic. [Dec. 12th, 2004|11:45 pm]

I've been playing around in my head with a plot bunny that involves Harry living in Ireland for a few years, but know nothing about the country. This seriously hinders my progress.

You guys have perfect timing!
I'm watching this community for a while before I end up writing something entirely retarded.

Well, here it is, the inaugural entry. I feel like I'm talking to myself. Suppose no one ever finds the community? I can't be the only HP fandom member out there with a thing for Ireland, can I?

Moving on before the crickets begin. Uh, suppose it's obvious I'm the mod -- what should you know about your mod? She's very big on Northern Ireland. Ulster, if you like. You'd be surprised how many people are completely unaware of this, but... there's a difference between Ireland and Northern Ireland?Collapse )

Mess this up and your mod may be forced to take action. You have been warned.

Anyway, here's a rec to start us off:

Selfinsertion O'BuggerSubtlety and the Philosopher's Stone
by Nights Mistress

Mind, the link's to fanfiction.net, which I don't advise visiting unless you've good virus protection. Still, I read the first couple chapters of this fic a while back, and it was a SCREAM. The kid is a Belfast member of the 'junior IRA' who goes to Hogwarts, and the thing is just outrageous parody, lots of explosions and so forth. I wish I'd have read the whole thing, but dare not click on this computer. Maybe one day in the PC lab. (I don't care about my uni's computers.)

Anyone else have a story to share?

Edited to fix the link!
