1916: Weaving Public & Private Narratives
Welcome to Inspiring Ireland Inspiring Ireland is a growing project to make Ireland's digital cultural heritage available to everyone, and to provide rich themes and narratives to contextualise that heritage. This project of the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) first launched in 2014 with a beautiful collection of objects from eight of Ireland's national cultural institutions. Artfully grouped into three broad but fundamental themes - Sense of Place, Sense of Identity, Sense of Freedom - these initial exhibitions provide a window into Ireland's rich social and cultural heritage. The pilot project quickly received accolades, and won three Ireland eGovernment Awards in early 2015, including the year's 'overall winner.'
For more on the background of the project, please see About the Pilot Project.
I have learned so much from Howard Zinn!
What an amazing person and an inspiration!
Governments Lie: Howard Zinn on Class Warfare, Immigration, Justice, Film and History (2007)
I would also recommend " A People′s History of the United States"
A REAL history lesson!
This is so sweet! Makes me cry, in a good way.
My Grand Pa had Alzheimer's... It's so hard to see a person lose their memories bit by bit over time. To see them fade in a way and feel they are far from you.
But when that memory comes back, for even a few minutes ... It's overwhelming. I always tried so hard to savor those moments, feel them and be a part of the memory.
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman

I was never taught much about Fidel Castro other than he was the devil... But now as an adult I have done my own research and I have found that he is a great man that has changed the course of history and also changed the world and made it a better place for so many people! I was inspired watching this. It's such a shame that American history can't get passed the fact that they couldn't stop this one man and his small country and just educate with some simple facts! But then again I'm not suprised...
This is excellent viewing. Very informative and eduicational. A must see for anyone who believes in people and not company power.
One person can make a difference! Fidel Castro has!

Grand mama... The happiest person I have ever known.
She always looked at things with positive direction. She was amazed by everything and never grew bored of the little things in life. She really was the most positive and joyful woman with a hunger for knowledge and the curiosity of a child with wonder and amazement in everything she saw and experienced. To say she glowed would be an under statement!
Today I found that my lovely Grand mama has died. She passed in April 8 weeks ago today. I would never had known if a restaurant hadn't posted on Facebook that she would be missed. Why they posted I will never know but I'm glad they did.
I'm in bits and heart broken. She was 90 a great age but still that doesn't really seem to matter right now. I just miss her... I haven't seen her for a long time but that doesn't matter either. I always loved her and I know she loved me.
Grand mama I will miss you and I love you! You helped to shape me and I hope some of my qualities (besides my big feet!) I got from you! Your light will never fade!
