I am neither catholic or protestant and find it appalling that the Irish are still fighting over that issue. I love all things Irish but have never been to Ireland. I am one half Irish (SHEEHAN) from the county CORK in the south of Ireland, but I have no preference on north or south. I would love to go to Ireland and discover my heritage someday before I die, but well into my senior years that might and might not be happening. I would love to see both the north and south although I think I would enjoy the south more only because the weather I hear is a bit warmer on the inlet side of the island. I want to see the ocean on the cliffs but as far as entertaining I think a little calmer climate would be better suited for me. I would love to walk the hills and roads of Ireland but my legs would no longer permit that so ...if I were to go I would be visiting as a tourist in a car (no bus) and seeing all the great castles and cottages of Ireland.

My name is Joanna; I grew up and Michigan with and Irish father and an Indian mother from Kentucky. Well grew up is the wrong word let's just leave it as they were my parents. I have one full sister that also loves everything Irish. We collect all the little trinkets throughout the years and a collections of boxes and wardrobe items. We think we can copy the dialect but only a true Irish person would know if we do that or not.

I am here to meet and greet Irish souls and hope to find some wonderful friends over the internet.

Ta thee top of da mornin ta ya!

Gee I hope your team leader returns or someone steps up to the challenge!

I hail from across the pond in Canada. Your group interested me, for several reasons:

1.
Grandmother born mid 1800 in Ireland
2.
Grandfather born mid 1800 in England
They arrived in Canada in the late 1800
3.
I am planning a trip to Ireland & England before I croak, well it is on my bucket list.
4.
I was widowed 33 years ago, raised my daughter, she married and has a home and lives close by. My pride and joy is my grand daughter.

Hello everyone! My name is Nina and I'm from Raleigh, North Carolina. I'm 28 soon to be 29 in March married with one beautiful son. I've been on Sparkpeople for a few years now on and off, but just recently decided to get serious about my health and weight after being diagnosed with arthritis at this young age and watching my mother dying from not taking care of herself. I've accomplished many goals, lost 50 pounds and dropped 3 pants sizes now the challenging part is losing the last 80 some to reach my healthy weight. Can't wait to meet all of you and be a part of your journey!

The grass isn't greener on the other side it's greener where you water it!

Hello everyone emoticon

I'm Maggie, 35 from Dublin. I have been a member of SP for years but hitting 35 has made me realise I have to start doing something about my weight NOW.

I have about 3 stone ish to lose, I'm not following any diet plan, just trying to be sensible and keep everything in moderation. I am exercising - a combo of walking and running. Hoping to run the Mini Marathon in June and from there who knows? emoticon

Looking forward to chatting with you all and sharing in your journeys

Hi All,
Peter from Dundalk, I'm 52, male and want to lose a few kilo's ,well the beer belly specifically !! too much watching the footie over the last few weeks. I'd like to get rid of about 15kg by Christmas. I gave up the smokes in January so its been creeping on since them. This site seems great so far - I only joined yesterday - but I'm new to this whole measuring / calories stuff thought I'm getting great advice and help from my wife. I like the 'My Nutrition' section to register your eating and see how you are getting on.
Anyway off for a walk now,
Cheer's

Hi everybody. I'm Gerri from Cork. I'm 40 (waaaah!!) I really need to lose weight before my thyroid goes underactive so that I cope with the changed metabolism better.

I'm useless at exercise, and find running for one minute has me panned out! I'm not allowed exercise at the moment as my resting heartrate is too high. So I'm sitting on the couch and snacking worse than EVER! My sleep is totally erratic. I've had 3 hours tonight. So I'm generally exhausted during the day and grab the odd nap if I can drop off on the couch.

I'm really hoping SparkPeople will help me get on track. :)

Hi folks,

I'm Jen and I'm looking for some support and motivation to change my lifestyle and lose weight.
I've always been big and so I figure I need to change a lot about myself in order to become the person I've always wanted to be.
I'm living in Dublin.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi All, I'm Orla, from Dublin, but living in Toronto now. I just read the joke page and would love to go through this weight loss journey with a bit of humour. Lovely to read your introductions. I will be in Dublin for a wedding in May and I want to be able to go into the shops and just pick out a couple of pretty dresses. To do that I have to stop eating Taytos!

Hiya, just found this team, Been on Sparkpeople for a few months now and find it very motivating. I live in Northern Ireland and travel regularly to Mayo. Hope everyone is having a good start to the week and enjoying healthy eating and exercising. (Looking forward to a snowfight later when the children home from school!!).

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

Hi Everyone! I'm Laura from Mayo. I am 27 and I am fed up of not fitting into the lovely clothes and dresses I used to wear. Also I have been constantly sick with colds and infections that I just can't get rid of for the last two months and I am convinced it is because I am not getting enough exercise (or any).
I work at a desk job and drive to and from work, most of my evenings and weekends are spent doing volunteer work which means I find it hard to find time to exercise as I am always exhausted. Well, today I am feeling the best physically that I have for a while, and it wasn't raining (for a change) so I went for a 30min brisk walk through my lunch break instead of surfing online :) I am hoping sparkpeople will help to keep me motivated and that maybe I can help motivate others.

Hi! I'm Jason! I'm sorry if I'm posting this wrong, I'm easily confused by internet related activities. I'm 22 and after a six month lull in my weight loss goals I'm starting to try really hard to get going again. Nice to see an Irish page on here. It made everything less terrifying. Also, I know I'm probably late to the party on this one, but the emoticons here are AMAZING. Example:emoticon

Thanks for contacting me, you are so kind.

I am still not doing well at losing weight, in fact I gained 2 pounds! This is essentially because the cravings for nicotine are assuaged by eating. I am not disheartened , I will stick at my tracking and I am sure it will come good.

How are you getting on?

Hello Doddery. Welcome to the team. I don't usually find anyone around my age. I'm in my 60s too. I'm impressed, went off nicotine cold turkey. How are you doing now? Good luck.

Hello,

63 year old male here, in Dublin. My handle refers to a river which runs through my part of town!

Am struggling to get the weight down. I recently "cold turkeyed" myself off nicotine replacement products and have jumped half a stone,

I hope this site will help me cleave to the straight and narrow!

Hey, I'm Sonya from Limerick. I'm 30 and live with my husband and our 4 cats :) I've been losing weight since this time last year and I have 15.5lbs left to go. I joined for some help losing these last few pounds andto help me maintain (or maybe lose a few more?) when I reach that goal.

BTW, where do you get the trackers?

hi i joined a few weeks ago and have done nothing about loosing the weight since i joined, but now am into the size 18 clothes and am only a tiny little thing in height so its time to ...take the nose out of the horse bag and cop on (so to speak). not looking good though, as i type this am eating a bag of crisps!!! but really want to loose the weight, feel fat - look fat and tired of feeling and looking this way, love the summer but they thought of the beach, swimming etc....i hope we all get what we want out of this, wouldnt it be great if we all reached target weights...

Hi my name is Carol and I am from Cork. I eat pretty healthily but have a weakness for tasty treats. I am currently a size 16 and would love to be a 12 or 10. I have found Spark really useful, especially for showing me how bad those treats really are. Anyway happy to help others and equally I wouldn't mind a Spark Buddy. Anyone here from Cork?

Hi I'm new too. I live in Kilkenny, but I'm originally from Newcastle. Following a low carb diet which is so delicious I'm going to be happy to stay on it for the rest of my life! Have 2 stone to go and have already lost a stone and a half so now it gets difficult!

Anyone else in Kilkenny here?

Hi All, Just joined tonight. Hope you don't mind me joining. I'm living in Dublin but originally I'm from Cork. My baby brother is getting married in December and I'm determined not to be the chubby (very chubby these days) sister! The only problem is I love food and hate exercise. I'm hoping Spark will help keep me motivated, maybe give me some ideas.

Hello Hello..

Technically I'm not Irish but may as well be. Lived in Dublin for nearly 10 years now. My aim is to quit smoking and exercise helps me stay on track. Also looking to lose 10/12 lbs. Loving SparkPeople. Very handy. Hopefully I can stick with it. Here's to a healthier 2011. Slainte

Nvm.. I figured out the weight tracker yoke

Hi all,

I was born and raised in Cape Town South Africa. Moved to Ireland 5 years ago. I am a newly single mother to 2 kiddies aged 1 and 2, been a single mother since May this year. I do find it hard and lonely as I don't really have family around and don't know many people. I am hoping to make some friends here.
I have been with SP since the 9th October this year and so far have lost over 6kg (over a stone)! Still loads to go but I am determined!

Hello, my name is Lynne, born and raised in Canada, but my roots are Irish. I'm a soon to be 61 year old Mother and grandmother. I live in Hamilton, I'm retired, and I do some volunteer work in the winter, and we have a trailer we stay at in the summer.
I love everything about the out of doors. I used to bike a lot, and roller blade, but now that I'm getting older, I have traded those things for the Wii fit and a treadmill. I've always been super active, and have always fought with my weight. The last time I dropped a few pounds I felt 15 years younger, I'll settle for 5 years this time.
Hope to get to know a lot of you.
Lynne

Heh...thanks for at least trying to keep my secret! Walking around somewhere new always sounds great. I would LOVE to get lost in the various cities and towns there.
?
At the moment, our plan is to one day go and spend a couple weeks. I think I could spend every night in a pub listening to music and talking with others.

May I ask where you are at

Hey there GHK! You'd best add a week to your trip to fit in the pubs (and your secret is safe with me, but wives have a way of figuring secrets out;). I had a great time going to pubs with my daughter. We hit her favorites in Cork and only a couple in other locations but it was so much fun. I drank more in those 16 days than in the last 5 years and still lost 8 pounds while there. We walked A LOT. I cannot wait to get back.

Hi Peggy-Bee ~

Thanks for the welcome. I'm also on the Irish Music team as well...though...uhh...I don't play an instrument. (What is it with me about being on teams that I do not have the minimum prerequisites?!?!?)

Anyway, my wife and I have been doing Irish dancing for about 2+ years now. Not step dancing...no way...that is way to hard! We do a lot of ceilis...and go to a weekly ceili dancing class.

We do plan to get to Ireland some day. I've always wanted to go. As for extra time...I suspect we'll need it...I have a secret plan to stop at every pub we see (shhhhh, don't tell my wife though!).

You may say I'm a dreamer...but I'm not the only one...

Hi GHK! Your initials match my father-in-laws.
I have found this to be a most welcoming team. How long have you done the Irish dance?
I hope you and your wife get to Ireland. I met the most friendly people there. But you must plan for extra time as they do love to talk! I cannot wait to get back.

Hi all...uhhh....let me know if I need to get off this team....I'm not in Ireland...nor of Irish heritage...but my wife is.

I do Irish dancing...and have just wanted to connect a bit with something Irish...but understand if this is not the place.

I would love to walk the prom and watch the littles ones feed the swans!! But, alas, I am in the US. But when my girl returns to Cork and I visit her, l will catch the BusEire and take that walk with you! Galway is so pretty and we had a blast walking, exploring, just enjoying.

and I forgot to mention:

My daughter had told me the custom agents in Ireland weren't always friendly ( she had to show proof of her admittance to UCC and that she had housing) but when the agent saw my name on my passport he said "Welcome home, Margaret Kennedy" and gave me a quick hug!!!

I, too, don't live in Ireland but am of Irish descent. In March my daughter and I visited Ireland for 17 days, circling the island, starting and ending in Cork. My girl had attended UCC for a year and Had to go home (she had "baile" tattooed on her foot our last day in Cork). She is returning for grad school next year. I know I will be losing her to Ireland but I can't think of a place I'd rather she be (other than here with us) and we'll have to visit often, Of Course!! We live in California, but I dream of Ireland. *sigh*

Oh, and I lost 8 pounds while there, lots of walking!!!

Hi all,
I'm just getting started on here, finding my way around the website slowly but surely! Would like to shed 2.5 stone, so I've a bit of work ahead of me. Have tried upping exercise and eating well without tracking/calorie counting, and that just wasn't working. I actually gained weight! So tis time to start tracking things now. Finding it quite time consuming so far, but hopefully I'll get faster as I get used to it.
Thought there would be more people in this group who are current Irish residents - maybe ye are just hiding? Come out and play! :)

Hi everyone, the weather here is beautiful and I am spending most of my time outdoors. Been doing a bit of gardening, taking time to smell the roses lol, relaxing on the deck and bird and deer watching. So I am getting online late and missing you. I hope everyone is well and enjoying the weather.

Hi Ilene and emoticon to the team! You are so lucky to have spent so much time in Ireland and so fortunate to return again and again. Take me with you next time! LOL

Hi, My name is Ilene and I lived in Ireland for three years while attending graduate school. I left my heart in Ireland and I have a lot of Irish friends. I get back there every few years, to enjoy it again. emoticon

Hi Dawn! I'm in IL so we're 'neighbors!" What plans do you have for the land you are buying? Do you farm?

Don't think you have to get everything right. One step backward, two steps forward is a mantra around here. Someone told me she just tries to do the next right thing, and sometimes that is the best thing you can do.

Enjoy the great weather we're having for your runs!

Thought I should tell you a bit about myself. My name is Dawn, and I'm from the U.S., Iowa to be exact. I live out in the country, and just found out last night that my loan was approved and I'm finally buying an acreage!!! I'm married-going to be 13 years this July. I have 3 beautiful daughters, Ashley (17) who is graduating at the end of May, Natasha (16) she's a sophomore, and Autumn (9) she's in 4th grade. I have a cat named Coraline, and two dogs, a German Shepherd named Dee Dee, and a Chesapeake Bay name Mya. I need to lose some flab, about 60 lbs of it. I've recently picked up running and love it. I'm trying to eat healthier and make healthier food for my family. It just feels impossible sometimes to get everything right, but I know I will get there and I'll be a better person for achieving it.

~Dawn~

~You can say "I can do it" or you can say "I can't do it". Either way you're going to be right.

Embrace your Awesomeness!!!

Hi Airyn and emoticon to the team.

Your wish is the same as mine, to finally be able to trace our Irish roots, which seems to mean going there in person. :)

Hi Devora,

Welcome to the Irish team. I was born and raised in Cork but now live in PA. These are a great group of people.
