Everything Irish About Ireland
Like many Americans my genetic and cultural heritage includes the fact that I am half Irish. The other half is Scandinavian. In a sense, that makes me very Irish. The history of Ireland 800–1169 covers the period from the first Viking raids to the Norman invasion. However, recent archeological finds give the impression that the Vikings may have visited the emerald isle much earlier; coming and going as they pleased.
Vikings left a lot of culture, language, building tech, traditions and genes behind. Red hair and freckles came from Norway. Google Erik The Red, a famous Viking with flaming red hair.
Millions of other people around the world claim Irish Ancestry. That doesn't mean they know a lot about Ireland and the Irish. It's what they don't know that will surprise them. Especially Irish social etiquette. If you are planning a trip to the Emerald Isle for business, pleasure or to meet an Irish guy or girl, this information will be invaluable to you.
