“Every day I learn something new about Ireland and the gifts of Irish people to the world. Most people don’t know that Hallowe’en started in Ireland, or that Irish monks preserved the scientific, artistic and literary treasures during the Dark Ages, introducing them during the age of Enlightenment.
