"You folks could go a long way with this in showing how the famous Peterson Pipes are crafted from rare roots in their "Factory" in Sallynoggin, Ire, and show how the wonderful Aaran sweaters are made with the start of sheering the sheep to the fine made finished product of sweaters and scarves, How about throwing in how peat logs are cut, stacked, dried, sold, & shipped around the world. Show the picturesque villages with hand thatched roofs, and how the thatching is accomplished and wears over time. Let's see how Earthen ware is cast and fired with ancient Celtic symbols, and the best yet, how Waterford & Killarney & Gallway Crystal are created, and how Guinness and Jameson are made and aged and perfected before going on the market. What about Irish lace and linen? You folks at "Hands" should RUN with this product, Ireland has a wealth of history in every Irish product! "

I read an article this last week, probably about The Donald, which said that Americans with Scottish and Irish ancestors like to pretend they are truly Irish, Scottish. Didn't mention the Welsh though.
It's a little known fact, but a Taff discovered America you know. That man was Prince Madog ab Owain Gwynedd. A Welsh poem of the 15th century tells how Prince Madoc sailed away in 10 ships and discovered America. Landed in what is now Alabama they did.
