I am sitting up since the moon arose last night
Putting down a fire again and again and keeping it lit
The family is in bed and here am I by myself,
The cocks are crowing and the country is asleep but me. I love your mouth, your eyebrows and your cheeks
Your bright blue eyes for whose sake I stopped hunting the wily fox
In longing for you I cannot see to walk the road
Friend of my bosom, the mountains lie between me and you. Learned men say that love is a fatal sickness
I never admitted it until now that my heart is broken:
It’s a very painful illness, alas, I have not avoided it,
And it sends a hundred arrows through the core of my heart.
I met a banshee at the Rath of Ballina
I asked her would any key unlock the love in my heart
And she said in soft simple language
“When love enters the heart it will never be driven from it”.

Lord Of The Dance – Michael Flatley
In May 1989, Flatley set a Guinness Book world record for tapping speed at 29 taps per second; when this record was broken, he set another record in February 1998, by achieving 35 taps per second. The current record holder is Michael Donnellan, at 40 taps per second. The dancer also received Guinness Book recognition in both 1999 and 2000 for being the highest paid dancer, earning $1,600,000 per week and for having the highest insurance premium placed on a dancer’s legs at $40,000,000.

Secrets of the Dead: Death on the Railroad
In 1832, railroad contractor, Philip Duffy, hired 57 Irish immigrants to lay railroad
tracks in West Chester, Pennsylvania. But, less than two months after their arrival,
all 57 were dead. Did they all die — as was widely believed — due to a cholera
pandemic? Or, were some of them murdered?
