My Irish grandmother used to respond in old-fashioned ways like "So says you!" and "Aye, that'll be the end of me." She also kept candy hidden around the house. 🍀
Of a neighbor with a two-story house (theirs was one-) she'd say "Rich as Croesus. Never a worry. From the mother's side, I think."
My Irish grandmother would beat me mercilessly at canasta, examine the table with her half-glasses down on the end of her nose, and say "You just have to do better, Aaron!"

What's that gang? You say it is #FluorideFriday? Why yes, yes it is! -|- "#Fluoride is highly effective at preventing caries and its use over the last 50 years has transformed dental health.”…
Ireland again. -|- "In 2002, a ‘north-south’ survey showed a substantial decline from 1984 in dental caries in both fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities in the Republic of Ireland, and in the non-fluoridated population of Northern Ireland."
"Reducing the underlying cause of disease through the restoration of normality, rather than adding a protective factor, is a more radical approach, and does not come with the risk of unwanted effects such as dental fluorosis.”

I want to ask the good people of #Irish Twitter to not share the article in today's Sunday @Independent_ie about the 'mother & baby home' investigation report. It's no scoop, the report will be publicly available from Tuesday. #RepealTheSeal #Stand4Truth
All today's article does is add to survivors trauma, yet again, by having our personal stories & information splashed across a national newspaper for clicks, likes & increased revenue before WE have read the report. There is zero empathy in the decision to publish.
Equally, there is zero empathy in the leak. The cynical part of me believes it to be a deliberate act to take the heat off the minister, @rodericogorman, by creating a distraction from the contents so that he, & others, are seen to be outraged. Good for PR.

It’s almost like #starmer was brought in to ruin the Labour Party, isn’t it?

Margaret Bradley
I would agree with that, he resigned from the cabinet then went back in, in 2016, he is a puppet, not only for #Blair and his cronies but #Israel,
I don't know what is happening to the #UK lately, we have MI5 and other security services, doing nothing about #Cummings who was in the #Russian communist party, working in number 10 and making a lot of decisions about how this country is run,
and #Starmer signing a pledge to basically #Israel govt, WHO are representing the #UK #English, #Irish, #Scottish #Welsh in this country,
look's like we are going to look after our selves, which means.....All sticking together

With permission to appeal sought (@CBrogan_MedLaw @caoilfhionnanna @MaryRachel_McC) from the decision to deny a simple Irish inscription on Margaret Keane’s grave, an exhibit, below, from my ongoing research to assist the family @My_Mums_Voice: Welsh & German inscriptions. [1/4] Image
Welsh: “Gorffwys Mewn Hedd” (Rest in peace)

German: “Oma” (Grandma); “Opa” (Grandpa)

These are illustrative of linguistic variation in Church of England graveyard inscriptions; relevant to the appeal in Margaret Keane’s case (details below).
With the family’s permission, please DM me any others: ideally from Church of England graveyard(s), showing non-English inscription without translation. Please:

▫️ photo the entire gravestone, and

▫️ provide name & location of graveyard.

Regarding the racist & xenophobic blood argument of people calling themselves #Irish patriots... You clearly don't know #Ireland's history at all. Not our perpetual exodus to other countries as #immigrants, our status as a people of the #diaspora or our history of blending.... 1/ Image
In roughly 12,500 BC the first inhabitants of Ireland arrived from overseas. They were hunter gatherers & they were later joined by a group in around 6000 BC. This second group brought agriculture & also high levels of CF amongst other hereditary genetic issues... They merged. 2/
Yes we are a Celtic people, but "Celticism" is an international culture which was imported & built on by the people who were already here. None of us have a right to claim that our blood & culture doesn't encourage immigration. Newcomers merged with the inhabitants to make us. 3/

A short thread on just *a few* of the amazing things ordinary people in @ireland are doing to support their neighbours and friends, as well as the frontline workers keeping us safe during the #coronavirus outbreak 1/6
First up is #selfisolationhelp which began as a tweet by @HelenORahilly and has now blossomed into a network of 7,000+ volunteers across the country with its own website ( and text messaging system — all built by more volunteers. 2/6
People are helping with everything from collecting shopping and medical supplies to walking dogs and just offering to just be on the end of a phone for someone who may not have anyone else to talk to. 3/6
