Re: Leather bottle

Wow! I don't remember seeing this bottle on display, but that was 6 years ago.

What is the story on this leather bottle: approximate date of manufacture; location; provenance? This is very cool! :!:

Re: Derrick's Eonar/Ionar or Tutu, mystery solved?

To display a better idea of how my eonar has evolved through usage, here is an image when it was first completed about six years or seven ago. It has seen constant use and has never been washed (Me? wash living history garb?) http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2007-4/1255360/EonarBack.jpg

Re: Historical Revisionism and the Irish War of Independence.

... but a by-word for sentimentality and story telling. Factor into the potential explosiveness of sentimentality the way “advanced nationalists” long ago took on to (a) define what it means to be “truly” Irish, (b) dismiss any who fail or refuse to conform with their definition as West Brit, seanin ...

Re: My Lucas Type 1 Ballinderry Shoes and my Ballinderry Sword

Re: Fort Camden Crosshaven

I visted Camden years ago and thought it was a pity that it had been let go.
Fair play to the people who have started to restore this piece of Irish history. I think we should try to support their efforts.

Re: mosin nagant rifle
