      Awww Lizzy, you are too sweet. I saw the post and you made me smile, almost makes me want to change my user name, LOL. Yes I can totally see why you say I am black irish, it fits me to a tee. I have never felt more complimented then you have made me feel. I am not going to lighten my hair for the wedding now that I have looked at myself through your eyes. My dad would have loved this post, it's funny I grew up in such an irish household and no one had ever mentioned black irish to me before, I am the only one in my family who got the black hair. Is there any kind of stoies that go along with black irish that would have offended my grandparents catholic sensabilities, it is the only reason I can think of that I had never learned of black irish before. My dad was born and raised in Ireland, and his family was a very proud irish family. I had always dreamed of visiting Ireland with my dad, he died before we had a chance, it is on my dream list to visit one day soon.

        Hey Kelly! Where is your family from in Ireland? I just visited last year - it was absolutely gorgeous! If I ever can, I would be so very happy to live there for a few years! Unfortunately, my travels only took me to Dublin - my family is from County Derry - up in Northern Ireland. Someday I'll get there!!!

          I too want to go to Ireland sooo bad! Paul's mom and dad are from there ... moved over to the US about 40 years ago. so, so, SO proud of their irish heritage! Most of Paul's family is still over there ... he's a county Clare guy himself - we might actually go next year

            Faerie Princess, there all kinds of interpretations of what the term "Black Irish" means, but this article gives a short rundown on them. I still think it is a beautiful thing to be and am happy that my daughter and I, and you my young friend, are so blessed to be one of them!
