Great images, great trad and a good story.

From the filmer:

While traveling through Ireland with Irish poet, James Kelly, we stopped in his home town of Ballybunion in County Kerry and visited his father. Later that day, inside DJ’s pub, papa Kelly sang a traditional Irish ballad in honor of his wayward son… I cut the song with some footage I shot of Ireland while traveling with James.

This is the walking hat made in northwest Ireland of tweed, the fabric preferred by the Emerald Isle’s sportsmen for centuries. Crafted from Donegal tweed, the same locally raised 100% wool fabric used when it was originally made in 1968 to be paired with blazers or sweaters, its varied flecks and blends of color are the result of centuries of tweed-making skillcraft. It is fully lined with viscose taffeta and has a sweatband and taped interior seams. The hatband has a removable feather .

I am not a big Whiskey drinker but since a friend of ours introduced us to "Connemara – Peated Single Malt" Irish Whiskey I found my new favorite liquor. This is the best tasting whiskey I have tried. You can taste the smoky barrel, honey and if you take big sip you can even see the green hills of Ireland before you.

So I bought a bottle and put it one in our moving boxes, as a treat for us when they arrive here.

2 weeks late, the boxes are finally here and as you can see the bottle is cracked open. Cheers!

What is your favorite Whiskey – talk about it on the Ireland Forum.
