San Patricio, la fiesta que viste a Irlanda de verde

Mensaje por Gaillimh el Mar Nov 06, 2007 5:54 pm

San Patricio, la fiesta que viste a Irlanda de verde


El trébol, el color verde y la cerveza son los tres elementos fundamentales en las celebraciones del día del patrón de Irlanda

17 de marzo. San Patricio. Patrón de Irlanda.
El día más esperado por todos los irlandeses. De los que viven en su país y de la numerosa diáspora que se dispersa por todo el mundo. Allí donde hay un irlandés o una irlandesa, hoy, 17 de marzo, se celebra San Patricio.

Los símbolos

Durante toda la jornada, Irlanda vive de lleno su cultura en un espíritu festivo cargado de iconos.
El shamrock, el trébol que es la imagen a la fiesta, simboliza la buena suerte. San Patricio lo utilizaba para explicar el misterio de la Santísima Trinidad a sus fieles. Ahora sirve para adornar calles, tiendas, escuelas... todas las instituciones tienen el suyo. Se trata de llamar a la fortuna.
Otro símbolo es el color verde. Con él se tiñen las calles, los pubs, las casas e incluso las personas. Simboliza la primavera irlandesa, una estación que comienza a los pocos días y que los irlandeses se adelantan al darle su bienvenida.

La cerveza, parte de la tradición

Si existe un elemento común en todas las festividades irlandesas sin duda es la cerveza. Se trata de algo más que el zumo de cebada. Es todo un símbolo del país. Las pintas de cerveza se levantan en días de fiesta, días de entierro, días de despedida, de luto, de alegría, de tristeza. La negra es mundialmente famosa y exportada a los rincones más remotos de la Tierra, pero también son marcas nacionales las rubias, las tostadas e incluso las de trigo.
Litros de cerveza correrán hoy por los valles verdes de la isla más occidental de Europa. Acompañarán con total seguridad al Irish Stew, el tradicional estofado preparado con carne de cordero, patatas, zanahorias y una mezcla de diversas hierbas aromáticas.

El río Chicago hoy es verde

Irlanda no llega a los 4 millones de habitantes, pero los irlandeses son muchos más. La isla sufrió crisis económicas muy serias, como la ocurrida a finales del siglo XIX provocada por la muerte de las patatas, sustento básico de la población. En veinte años Irlanda perdió a la mayoría de sus habitantes, sobre todo a los jóvenes, que cruzaron el Océano en busca de un futuro de vida. Pero hoy es el día en que Irlanda disfruta de un panorama mucho más alentador. La población es muy joven, está cada día mejor preparada y las empresas de innovación tecnológica han elegido a la isla como un buen país para establecerse. Pero todas ellas cerrarán sus puertas hoy& para celebrar San Patricio.
Igual lo harán las comunidades irlandesas de Nueva York, Boston y Chicago.
En Nueva York, la cerveza y el color verde cobran protagonismo hasta el punto de que esta bebida se tiñe de este típico color irlandés. Los bares se encargan de poner en la cerveza un colorante vegetal o una crema de menta.
La ciudad de Chicago brinda al patrón irlandés una celebración realmente colorista y emocionante. Las aguas del río Chicago se tiñen de un brillante verde esmeralda, lo que da a la ciudad un aspecto sorprendente.

The town of Hay-on-Wye (Y Gelli)

Mensaje por Gaillimh el Mar Nov 06, 2007 6:04 pm


The town of Hay-on-Wye lies on three borders. The national boundary with England, and the county boundaries of Brecknockshire and Radnorshire run through the town. Typically of Hay, the county boundary is marked by the famous River Wye, while the national boundary is hidden away, marked by the Dulais Brook which trickles down the valley a hundred yards or so away from the remains of the old Town Wall. The third boundary is that with the Brecon Beacons National Park, in whose corner Hay sits.
The town has always held an important place in the region, being on the road to Brecon, once the most important town for miles around. Because of this it has a history of coaching inns and pubs, and the tradition of offering food and lodging to travellers continues with accommodation and cuisine being among the best on offer in Britain.
Because of its position the town has seen many battles through the ages. The castle has been attacked several times in its history from both sides of the border. It was destroyed by the English King John in 1216, and soon after the Welsh Prince Llywelyn set fire to it. The most recent fire, which destroyed a great part of the castle, occurred in 1977. Its history of being tussled over by Welsh and English has given Hay a unique duality. It also gives its inhabitants a very practical attitude to survival. King Offa of Mercia built an enormous earth wall in the second half of the eight century to protect himself from the Welsh. This now forms the line of the Offa's Dyke Footpath, which runs from South to North Wales along the border. The town has a second and older castle hidden away and unmarked, next to the church.
It has a second and Welsh name, Y Gelli, and this appears on signposts around the district. The historian can research the evidence for months, as much has been written about the town. These include parish records of the many churches, including non-conformist chapels. Records also exist of the Almshouses, still in use, where women of good character over a certain age have economically priced accommodation. Several local writers have chronicled the history of the town, of which the definitive is probably Annals of a Parish by local historian Geoffrey L Fairs. This was published in 1994, written to mark the 1050th anniversary of the earliest known mention of the town. A slimmer volume is The Book of Hay, written by Kate Clark in 1990. Other guide books are readily available in the Tourist Information Office.
Early reports of the eccentrics who seem to be attracted to Hay, include Maud Walbee, said by some to be a witch, who it has been reported was walled up with her eldest son, to starve to death for displeasing the king at the time. Other legends from the district appear in the Mabinogion, the definitive book of legends of Wales. One legend connected with the Prince Llywelyn, who fired the castle, is that in order to avoid the English in a battle at nearby Builth Wells, he had his horses' shoes put on back to front, so that the English thought he was running away, when in fact he was advancing. Similar tales of the Welsh getting the better by wile and wisdom over their opponents, including the Devil himself, are well known in Welsh Tradition.
Coming up to the modern day the preacher Francis Kilvert was a frequent visitor to Hay recording day to day events in his diary. Then in 1922 the town achieved notoriety when a local solicitor, clerk to the Justices, was tried, and finally hung for the murder of his wife. Life for the inhabitants has been, like everything else in Hay, a mixture. Lying in the fertile Wye Valley, the major occupation has always been connected with farming, mainly of sheep, because of the hilly terrain. But alongside farming has been working in the wealthier houses, which have often been owned by English families. Many people locally, even today, have more than one job, as, in spite of the prosperity brought in by tourism, wages are low.
The Market has always played an important part in the town, and this as with other market towns, has brought people in from outlying areas to shop for all their needs. So alongside the cattle market have developed tradespeople and merchants. For the visitor, there is every kind of pleasure. Beautiful scenery, excellent accommodation and superb local cooking, all provided with the pride in excellence for which the Welsh are well known. The energetic can walk; a second long distance footpath, The Wye Valley Walk, runs through the town; ride, canoe, or cycle in the area and local agents can provide all the equipment needed. Including advice on safety, which is sometimes ignored at their peril by visitors, as mists can come down on the hillsides, and currents trap unwary on the river in minutes. Local newspapers regularly report fatalities each year.
For the music lover there are local concerts, but centres such as Cardiff, which provides the very best in entertainment, is within reach to hear such renowned performers as the Welsh National Opera. Hay holds a Festival at the end of May at which international stars of stage, screen and radio regularly perform. Alongside this is the Children's Festival where storytelling, puppetry, and magic occupy children from the ages of 6 - 12 in workshops, with additional activities for younger children. Hay is also a favourite for visitors to the nearby Royal Welsh Show in July.
The Art and Antique enthusiast can browse through the many excellent galleries in the town, and the book-lover can visit the unparalleled thirty plus bookshops, which were in the forefront of the development of the town as a tourist attraction. The town has recently been awarded a Market Town Initiative Grant by the Development Board for Rural Wales to enable it to provide facilities such as a new community centre for the residents. Along with this development various other amenities around the town are being improved for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.
The town is very aware of the Communication Revolution and has excellent facilities for computer links, the largest site being at the local primary school. This is at the forefront of a scheme to provide opportunities for further education. The town is one of the most visited tourist locations in Wales, with visitors regularly returning year after year. It is ideal for a short break, as it is within a few hours travel of the Midlands and London. Accommodation at Festival time is often booked up months in advance, with some people booking their place before they leave the previous year. However, the Independent Tourist Office is very helpful in advising on everything from attractively priced Bed and Breakfast to Five Star Hotel accommodation in the area.

FUN BEER FACTS
About 4000 years ago, it was the accepted practice in Babylonia that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a heney beer, and because their calender was lunar based, this period was called the "honey month" or what we know to day as the "Honey moon"

Before invention of the thermometer, brewers used to check the temperature by dipping their thumb, to find whether appropriate for adding Yeast. Too hot, the yeast would die. This from where we get the phrase " The Rule of the Thumb"

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender used to yell at themto mind their own pints and quarts and settle down. From where we get "mind your own P's and Q's".

After consumeing a vibrant brew called Aul or Ale, the Vikings would go fearlessly to the battlefield, without their armour, or even their shirts. The "Berserk" means "bear shirt" in norse, and eventually to the meaning of wild battles.

Way down in 1740, the Admiral Veron of the British fleet decided to water down the navy's rum, which naturally, the sailors weren't pleased with. They nicknamed the Admiral Old Grog, after the still stiff grogram coats he used to wear. The term grog soon began to mean the watered down drink itself. When you are drunk on this this grog, you are "groggy", a word still in use.

Long ago in england, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim of their beer mugs or ceremic/glass cups. The whistle was used to order services. Thus we get the phrase, "wet your whistle".

Book Of Days

Mensaje por Gaillimh el Miér Nov 07, 2007 1:06 pm

Book Of Days


Roma Ryan

One day, one night, one moment,
My dreams could be, tomorrow.
One step, one fall, one falter,
East or west, over earth or by ocean.
One way to be my journey,
This way could be my book of days.

Ó lá go lá, mo thuras,
An bealach fada romham.
Ó oíche go hoíche, mo thuras,
Na scéalta nach mbeidh a choích.

No day, no night, no moment,
Can hold me back from trying.
I'll flag, I'll fall, I'll falter,
I'll find my day may be,
Far and away,
Far and away.

One day, one night, one moment,
With a dream to believe in.
One step, one fall, one falter,
And a new earth across a wide ocean.
This way became my journey,
This day ends together,
Far and away.

This day ends together,
Far and away.
Far and away.

Evening Falls...

Evening Falls...


Roma Ryan

When the evening falls
And the daylight is fading,
From within me calls
Could it be I am sleeping?
For a moment I stray,
Then it holds me completely
Close to home - I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away

As I walk the room there before me a shadow
From another world, where no other can follow
Carry me to my own, to where I can cross over
Close to home - I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away

Forever searching; never right,
I am lost in oceans of night.
Forever hoping I can find memories
Those memories I left behind

Even though I leave will I go on believing
That this time is real - am I lost in this feeling?
Like a child passing through,
Never knowing the reason
I am home - I know the way
I am home - feeling oh, so far away

Smaointe...


Roma Ryan

Éist le mo chroí,
Go brónach a choích
Tá mé caillte gan tú
's do bhean chéile.
An grá mór i do shaoil
Threoraí sí mé.
Bígí liomsa i gcónái
Lá 's oích.

Chorus:
Ag caoineadh ar an uaigneas mór
Na deora, go brónach
Na gcodladh ins an uaigh ghlas chiúin
Faoi shuaimhneas, go domhain

Aoibhneas a bhí
Ach d'imigh sin
Sé lean tú
Do fhear chéile.
An grá mór i do shaoil
Threoraí sé mé.
Bígí liomsa i gcónái
Lá 's oích.

Chorus

Smaointe, ar an lá
(A) raibh sibh ar mo thaobh
Ag inse scéil
Ar an dóigh a bhí
Is cuimhin liom an lá
Gan gha 's gan ghruaim
Bígí liomsa i gcónaí
Lá 's oích'


Translation

Listen to my heart
Sorrowful, alas
I am lost without you
And your wife
The great love in your life
She guided me
Be with me always
Day and night

Chorus:
Lamenting the great loneliness
The sorrowful tears
Asleep in the quiet green grave
In a deep peace

There was happiness
But that departed
It was he who followed you
Your husband
The great love in your life
He guided me
Be with me always
Day and night

Chorus

I think of the day
That you were beside ne
Telling a story
Of the old life
I remember the day
Without want and without gloom
Be with me always
Day and night

Orinoco Flow

Orinoco Flow


Roma Ryan

Let me sail, let me sail,
let the orinoco flow,
Let me reach, let me beach
On the shores of Tripoli.
Let me sail, let me sail,
Let me crash upon your shore,
Let me reach, let me beach
Far beyond the Yellow Sea.

From Bissau to Palau - in the shade of Avalon,
From Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
From Bali to Cali - far beneath the Coral Sea.

From the North to the South,
Ebudæ into Khartoum,
From the deep sea of Clouds
To the island of the moon,
Carry me on the waves
To the lands I've never been,
Carry me on the waves
To the lands I've never seen.

We can sail, we can sail...
We can steer, we can near
With Rob Dickins at the wheel,
We can sigh, say goodbye
Ross and his dependencies
We can sail, we can sail...

Caribbean Blue


Roma Ryan

Eurus
Afer Ventus

So the world goes round and round
with all you ever knew
They say the sky high above
Is Caribbean blue ...

If every man says all he can,
If every man is true,
Do I believe the sky above
Is Caribbean blue ...

... Boreas ...
... Zephryus ...

If all you told was turned to gold,
If all you dreamed were new,
Imagine sky high above
In Caribbean blue ...

... Eurus...
Afer Ventus ...
... Boreas
Zephryus ...
... Africus ...
