Some Good News and a Thank You!

Fireworks BouquetA while ago, I submitted an article to the on-line newspaper, Irish Central, about my experiment with Iron-Age eating. It did quite well; it had 4.5k views, and 1.5k shares, which, for an article within that category was a very good result (although it could not surpass granny’s recipe for Irish apple pie lol!).

On the strength of that, I was invited to become a regular contributing writer, and have been asked to submit an article a month based on my personal interpretations of Irish mythology and history, much as I do here on this blog. I can’t believe it… I’m so chuffed! (You can’t see it, but I’m capering a very clumsy Irish jig right now… thank goodness you can’t see it, lol!)

I have had another article published today, based on one which I wrote for this blog back in March, about my take on the idea put forward that the Irish bog bodies displayed in the National Museum in Dublin are the victims of ritual Kingship sacrifice. I’m not convinced. If you want to read it, you can read it on Irish Central, or the full version here.

Next week, another article will be published entitled ‘The Tuatha de Denann | Irish Gods or Aliens?’. Intrigued? This one does not appear in any form on my blog, so you’ll have to wait till it’s published. I’ll post a link when it is.

I’d just like to thank all my lovely blogger friends and social media friends who visited my first published article, and liked, shared and commented. I really appreciated your support, so a big, genuine, heart-felt THANK YOU! to you all!

PS. I don’t expect any of you to read them, but I’m posting the link just in case anyone might want to!

  1. Congratulations, Ali! Well done! I went to your story on Irish Central and read it again. The photos of the bog bodies were pretty gruesome but interesting to see.


  2. Absolutely I will read them! Comhghairdeas, congratulations! That’s fantastic, Ali! πŸ™‚ Oh and last time I attempted an Irish jig I barely prevented myself from slamming into a table and falling on my face, so I doubt I’ll be inviting anyone to check out my dancing ability anytime soon, either…lol.
