Sinne Fianna Fáil

whose lives are pledged to Ireland.

I'm not british, I'm not saxon, I'm not english... (hey, I wonder how many of you recognize the song), but german. I have never been to what is now called Ireland, "only" to Northern Ireland. But something in me belongs there, Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal (another hint, spotted it?)

There are only two holidays I actually like- Hallowe'en and St Paddys Day. Not that I agree with a Roman ex- pat spreading his opinions and killing harmless snakes in a country which is not his. Nor do I appreciate the hype certain companies create to generate some revenue around it. But hey, it's the wearing of the green, very pleasing to the tortured soul of a Celtic- supporter.

Here's three paper packs, green, white and gold. 7 papers in each one, they look a great deal better in the original soze than in the previews, folks..

Sinne Fianna Fáil means, roughly, "Soldiers are we". More martial than I am, but it's Irelands anthem, after all.

I do NOT take sides in any sort of conflict related to Northern Ireland, and I do NOT encourage any kind of violence, extremism, terrorism, sectarianism or whatever ism mankind comes up with. I support a team, I love the "green island" and whoever wants to stir up hatred can get lost. My two cents. I might sound like a hypocrite after hinting (see above), but, folks, I darn well mean it. When cut, we all bleed red.

Geez, guys, I didn't mean to rant! So I better get off, don't forget to
and let me know what you think, good or... not so good. I thrive on your opinions!

About Me

German ex pat in West Yorkshire, I am living with The Man and 5 crackpot cats in Leeds. When I'm not "improving" something with spray paint and a glue gun or hide behind either a book or a PC screen, I am the deputy (mis)manager of a local bookie. (hey, all those glue sticks aren't free, and a job's a job- or so I keep telling myself!) Feel free to drop me a line, I love to hear from all you guys out there!
