Travel to Ireland essentials, keep Irish eyes smiling

By Jannet L. Walsh – Travel to Irealnd

Do as I say about packing and planning trips to Ireland, and not what I do.

Packing and planning for international travel is especially difficult with news headlines include lost luggage, delayed, or cancelled flights, stranded passengers, all adding stress to international travel, including travel to the island of Ireland.

I’ve put together a list from official tourism travel websites from both countries in Ireland, Ireland.com, and other resources to lessen the stress of air travel. Northern Ireland has an official tourism website, Discover Northern Ireland. View and download a map of Ireland from Tourism Ireland, and more publications for inspiration and trip planning.

Dublin Diaries July 10, 2022

I’ve just published the next in a series of videos called Dublin Diaries for July 10, 2022.

I started the series a year ago, and paused the videos while working on my book. Dublin Diaries is about rural Dublin Township, Swift County, Minnesota, along with topics of searching for Irish American roots and more. The township is named in honor of early settlers from Ireland and the capital city of Dublin. You can learn more at Dublin Diaries page.

Local journalism, newspapers soul of community

The weekly newspapers in rural towns across America are the storytellers of local communities. They are a source of news found in no other location, and might not be published online.

The Kerkhoven Banner, established in 1896, is a weekly print only publication serving the communities of Kerkhoven, Murdock, Sunburg, and Pennock, Minnesota. Their staff first wrote about the early settlers in Swift County in the late 1800s traveling by horse and cart to report the news. It’s now 126 years of continued serve in the rural central Minnesota agricultural region, and the stories keep being reported.

Father’s Day is a time to honor our father. I wanted to share about my late father Martin J. Walsh Jr., (1924-2008), to honor him today on Father’s Day. My father spent his career working as a telegrapher and station manager for the Great Northern and Burlington Northern Railroad, 1943 to December 31, 1984.
