Follow Friday: Small Leaved Shamrock

1 Comment

One of my favorite blogs is the Small Leaved Shamrock. Lisa’s blog is dedicated to Irish roots centering in Pennsylvania. Many of the post appeal anyone working on Irish genealogy. I’ve learned quite a bit about my Irish roots from this blog.

Some posts that I have enjoyed are:

Irish Women in America: Our Grandmothers’ Stories

To Be Born Irish

Death Comes in Threes: The sorrows of Margaret Foley Cowhey, 1891-1895

The Small Leaved Shamrock may be best known for it’s Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture, currently in it’s 16th Edition.  The carnival is comprised of posts by bloggers written for a specific topic that has been selected for each edition.  The current edition is Irish Portraits: An Album of Stories.

If you are exploring your Irish heritage, be sure to check out this blog.  If you’re a blogger, make sure you participate in the carnivals! Make sure to wish them a Happy 2nd Blog-a-versary!

    Thanks so much for reading and for the kind words, Mel. Readers (and carnival participants) like you make it even more enjoyable to write about and share my research. Keep up the work on those Kelly and Dolan lines of yours!
