What’s happening today at the Irish Roots Cafe

1) Irish dna code sequenced for first time with mapping
of the 3.1 billion sub units of DNA completed !  The work was
done by the Conway Institute at University College Dublin.
The project was headed up by Prof. Brendan Loftus.
This is the first complete picture of the Irish branch of mankind.
The project took just over one year and 30,000 Euros.

Notes This Week:
What’s happening today at the Irish Roots Cafe

1) Working on launching our Hedge School here.  It does
take a lot of time to put these things together.  We will start
with one or two fields of study.  It will be available in up to
3 ways. First, as free podcasts on iTunes and here at
irishroots.com.  Second, in audio format, either downloadable
or on CD as .mp3 files.  Third, some fields of study will
have a hedge teacher available as a ‘private’ consultant, don’t
you know now…. so, this will be interesting!

2)  We now have our first audio book up and running. It is
‘ Missouri Irish, Kansas City, St. Louis, the Irish Wilderness…’
Molly is the narrator.  So if you need some entertainment
while driving down the road or falling off to sleep, here is a
new opportunity for you !

3)  We are doing our international launch of the Hedge School
on Saturday, February 13, on up in Kansas City.  The Irish
Museum there volunteered the space so there we go. Hotel
rooms should be reasonable if you book soon.  We will have
workshops sessions in several areas, including:

Basic Irish Language
Irish History through Song
Genealogy, DNA, Sean Nos, Rare Books

Workshops themselves run from 1:00 to 3:00.
This includes a general opening session with all the
Hedge Teachers.

Meet the Hedge Teachers
Afterword meet with the 3 Hedge teachers:
Peter Adams, host of Hedge Row History, Irish Song….
Renata, host of Hello Fada on the Irish Language
Mike, founder and host of this podcast and author
of many an Irish book.

Private Collections Displayed
The Hedge teachers will also have displays of their private
collections of genealogy books (Mike), Irish jewelry from
Renatas an Stór, and a travel table by Peter.  Visit with us
as the sessions finish, and you might find some more travel
tips, genealogy clues, or Irish Language notes of use !

When: Saturday Feb. 13. 2010
Where:
The Irish Museum and Cultural Center
Downstairs at Union Station
phone the Museum: 816-474-3848
Admission: $15 includes workshops, materials,
meet and greet after, and Displays.
And do remember, you can plan your trip to Ireland or
perhaps get a nice piece of jewelry for that special
someone while your visiting at the displays after the
sessions.

We may even adjourn to a pub after all is said and done !

You can also reserve a spot by dropping
me a line from the web page if you like,
or on Twitter or Facebook

Schools were outlawed for the Irish with the coming
of the penal laws in Ireland.
Outlaw schoolteachers then taught outdoors, by the
sunny side of the hedge, in nooks and crannies, by the
side of the road, when ever and where ever possible.
Students would carry turf to school for fueling the
fire on a chilly day.  They ‘carried the sod’ so to speak.

Here are todays “Magnificent Seven” :

1)  Welcome Gail Dolly of McAlpin, Florida as a new member !
The Dolly family in Galway and the Barron family of Belfast

2)  Elizabeth Robillard of Bellaire, Texas, your Book of Irish Families
great and small has shipped !

3)  Sandra Tremulis of Redwood City, CA, your Book of Irish Families
and Kings and Queens County Ireland genealogy book has shipped.

4)  Welcome Denise Tanner of Louisville, KY, as a new member !
I am looking for a Shaughnessy family that lived in Glenduff and Ashford
areas of County Limerick.  Specifically I am looking for a Patrick (Henry?) Shaughnessy (abt 1811-abt 1848) of Glenduff, his wife’s name.  I believe
his father was George O’ Shaughnessy of Ashford (1780-1785).  Patrick’s
wife and children immigrated to America in 1851, settled for awhile in
Janesville, WI, then moved on to Iowa and Kansas.  Patrick Henry
Shaughnessy (1834 Glenduff) is my great Grandfather. His mother
died when they reached America, so he helped raise his siblings:
Mary. Schanna, Catherine. John (Jon?), Thomas, and Michael, all
born in Limerick, all immigrated to Wisconsin

5)  Welcome Ruth Stewart of San Jose, CA, as a new member !
Michael & Mary Hines (Hynes) first appear in the census of Ramapo,
Suffern, NY in 1855 stating they had been there one year.  He goes to
work for the Railroad. I’ve looked at all available sources without any
information on where they came from in Ireland.  I’ve currently found a
daughter, Celia, married to Frederick O’Donnell indicating they were
married in Ireland so I’m trying to find out as much information as I can
about this couple and their family.  Both common names adding to the
difficulty of the research.  Continue to search for their home in Ireland.

6)  Welcome Kathy Trapp of Darien, IL as a new member !
Researching Frost (of Meelick House, Co. Clare), O’Halloran of
Limerick, and O’Shaughnessy of Meelick House.

7) Welcome John J. Hartwell of Oxford, Massachusetts,

Curious News and Notes, From Ireland today

1)  Ruptured pipes meant no water in parts of Ireland, so
it was up to Guinness to refit their 30,000 litre trucks to
pump water.  Dublin seemed to be the largest in need.
http://www.independent.ie/national-news/guinness-delivers-pints-of-the-clear-stuff-across-capital-2016426.html

2)  Voya Seaweed Baths in Strandhill, Co. Sligo.
They started out in 1912 on the shore, until blown away in the 60’s.
The baths were known as a ‘sailors cure’ and are open again.
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/magazine/2010/0123/1224262672858.html

3)  A sad day for Waterford as the Waterford Crystal visitors centre
closed at Kilbarry last week.  In better days some 330,000 visitors
a year showed up, and 3,000 people worked for the companies here.
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2010/0123/1224262926773.html

4)  English no longer required in Irish primary schools.
A law has been withdrawn forcing English to be included in the
all Irish language schools.
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2010/0121/1224262783290.html

5)  Sean Nós song and dance is real at Temple Bar TradFest
