The old traditions, every country has them but what makes Irish traditions different from others?
Is it from the ancient age of the Celts? Many traditions in Ireland have died out and are long forgotten but other common ones are lived on a daily basis. Irish blessings would be a perfect example of traditions dying out in Ireland but thankfully more and more people around the world are always interested in remembering them.

Irish people like to talk, better yet tell a story. Always ready entertain us with a fascinating story about Leprechauns, banshees and Claddagh, stories like that are passed from generation to generation within families. They usually vary depending on the town the storyteller is from - which only makes listening to them more interesting!
