Zoomerang,
Of course that counts,and I like your name
very much : it reminds of U2 and Australia
at the same time.
I've become a U2 fan only since I entered the
University,but I hope to make up for lost time.
So you've been to St.Peter's! What were you
doing here?

Hi Michael,
I'm a postgraduate and I'm studying Russian medieval history,but I've written my diploma
paper on Irish culture.
Anyhow, at the moment I enjoy driving (as I have my driving test in September...)and horse-riding,and just can't wait to hear U2's new album,too.
What about you and what country are you in,
if that's not a secret ?

Hi Aine! Sorry I'm not russian, but... So you are into Irish culture?? How did that happen, if you don't mind me asking!!? I don't know if you have heard much Irish Traditional music, but I am heavily into it - it runs in the blood. I was just singing in a competition there today, (old style traditional unaccompanied singing) which was pretty nerve wracking. I'm 21 (today!) and studying Architecture in Dundee, Scotland although I'm on a bit of a holiday right now back in Tyrone. BTW ZoomerangII, do you know where your decendants come from in NI?? Where in London are you staying?? Have you been over to this part of the world and if so what do you think?? I'd love to go to both your parts of the world... St. Petersburg looks amazing, from an architectural POV at least and Australia, well, it just seems to be so cool. If only I had money, I'd be over like a shot!
Anyjow, enough of my rambling... Tell me more!

Happy Birthday!

My maternal grandmother is from near Moira, Co Down and the Ausie irish connection on my dads side hale from Dublin (they called me Mickey Joe Butler in Tipperary - although I don't know what that means?)

As for Northern Ireland, I have been there maybe a dozen times , and I can honestly say that I adore the place and everyone I have met (even the unplanned vehicular encounter with the armoured car in Christmas Day... oh well we wont go into that!).

When I have listened to the boys driving around Ulster, even in the middle of winter, well, it almost feels like part of me calls it home...

Hi Brian!
To cut a long story short,it was just like
falling in Love at first sight.
If you're studying architecture,it's an absolute MUST for you to come to St.Peter's,
and take care of your voice because I'm going
to listen to you - I love Irish Traditional
music with all my heart!
Unaccompanied singing - is it what's called
"sean nos"?
