Waking up and feeling great, (no Packer game hang over) at the Copper Coast Cottages, Bunmahon this morning, we were nicely greeted by our hosts as they served us another wonderful breakfast. Today we got to tour the famous House of Waterford Crystal factory and showroom. It was a very visual, up front tour, where we got to feel the heat of the furnace as the master crystal blowers worked their magic! Step by step, we were able to follow these pieces through the factory. We also got to see some other, “one of a kind” type creations that they craft on their free time. One of the new favorites is the set of handyman tools in the box.Our next two stops included The Irish Museum of Time and The Irish Silver Museum. Both were only a block apart from eachother, with the Time Museum being part of repurposing the building which was once a church. The multiple collection in these buildings are simply labeled priceless. Many pieces given to the museum for better care and to share with the world. Almost all of the clocks in the museum are currently working, including the oldest known pocket watch and other clocks dating older than 600 years old. The silver museum had so many beautiful pieces, hard to share them all.Time to travel onto and check into the next B&B on our journey. But we ran into yet another hiccup in this trip. As our paperwork shows, we should be checking into one B&B but when we tried, the host had no record of our reservations. Not sure where the problem happened, but somehow their rooms were all full and obviously double booked. Lucky we called ahead to our next night’s B&B, and they were able to also take us for tonight too. So, not in the plans but making it work, we headed to Kilkenny and get checked into the Celtic House B&B. These people were some lifesavers for tonight and we will deal with the travel company on their mistakes another day.That time of night again to search out a great meal. With many of the locals’ suggestions, we went for dinner to Langtons Bar, Kilkenny. I tried some interesting appetizers, being mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese and salmon, yum yum! Our other meals were steak for me and lamb for Jackie. As Bruce and Mickey headed back to the B&B, Jackie and I took a short walk to explore some of the beautiful streets. We came across some pubs with their beer keg deliveries left right out on the sidewalk for the pub keepers to bring into the buildings themselves. Delivery guys wouldn’t get away with that in Wisconsin.One other little gem we came upon on our way back, was The Grapevine Wine & Tapas Bar. As we sat enjoying our own company with eachother one last nightcap for the night, we reminisced of journeys over the past few days… wow what a week so far!Three more days to go yet, but time to rest up for tonight… 🥱😴 Goodnight! ...

Kilkenny, 4 noiembrie. Am pornit dimineață la drum cu dorința de a vedea unul din cele mai frumoase orașe ale Irlandei, dar și să mă conving la fața locului de modul cum funcționează o societate deschisă, în care români, polonezi, marocani etc. sunt bine primiți, susținuți și încurajați să își facă un rost alături de irlandezi, fără discriminări sau stigmatizări. Aproape fără excepție, toți românii din Kilkenny cu care am vorbit au avut numai cuvinte de laudă la adresa locuitorilor din Kilkenny care au fost săritori de la început, le-au recunoscut meritele și i-au ajutat să își pună pe picioare propria afacere. Când un oficial de rang înalt (ministru de stat) îți spune că și-ar dori ca politica locală să aibă o reprezentare mai bună a minorităților participante la viața comunității înțelegi de ce românii se simt atât de bine în Kilkenny.Am început ziua la sediul Twilight Community Group, o asociație care mizează pe diversitate și care promovează integrarea socială a celor care își caută o viață mai bună, departe de țara lor, în Irlanda. L-am reîntâlnit pe Martin Brennan, fondatorul și sufletul acestei asociații, i-am cunoscut colegii și pe mulți dintre cei cu care colaborează, precum cei de la Kilkenny Volunteer Centre. Tot aici am avut o discuție așezată (la propriu) cu Colin Ahern și John Hurley, din conducerea Kilkenny Chamber. Dar marea bucurie a fost să cunosc mulți români, pe Laura Drăgoi, care lucrează în Poliția Irlandeză (Garda), pe Ileana Cunniffe Băiescu care îi ajută pe cei care au fost înfiați de familii irlandeze în anii 1990 să își regăsească familia naturală. Așa s-a întâmplat cu Stefan J Doyle Official, vedetă astăzi la X Factor România, înfiat în 1990 din Satu Mare de o familie irlandeză.Am pornit apoi prin oraș, să cunoaștem câțiva români și afacerilor lor de succes. Îi sunt profund recunoscător lui Liviu Iftime, organizatorul principal al periplului nostru prin Kilkenny, cel care ne-a facilitat întâlniri cu oameni remarcabili. Sunt foarte bucuros că i-am cunoscut pe Ștefan, pe Ionuț, pe Mihaela, pe Adina, pe Oana, pe Florin și știu că sunt mulți alții ca ei pe care îmi doresc să îi cunosc în vizitele mele viitoare la Kilkenny. Mihaela Radu este în echipa managerului Langton House Hotel din Kilkenny, Eddie Langton. Ștefan Cadare este proprietarul The House Of Pretzels (unde covrigii sunt la mare căutare), Ionuț Manole a deschis pe strada principală Burgers factory & more Ireland, iar Florin Sima și-a încercat norocul (și a reușit) cu un restaurant spaniol, foarte căutat, numit The Grapevine. Ne-au impresionat Adina Dascalescu și Oana Oana care impun încet-încet în Kilkenny terapia cu sare (o parte adusă din România, de la Praid) în ”salina” lor de la Kilkenny Salt Therapy.Am încheiat seara la concertul de jazz al trupei bassistului irlandez Ronan Guilfoyle. Nu a fost o întâmplare. Așa am putut să o reîntâlnim pe Aleka Potinga, violoncelistă din România, profesoară de muzică la școli și la universități din Dublin, dar și vocalista trupei lui Ronan Guilfoyle.Las fotografiile să spună cât de încântat am fost să îi întâlnesc pe toți acești oameni care mi-au stârnit respect și admirație. Experiențele lor și modul în care s-au integrat în societatea irlandeză m-au făcut să înțeleg și mai bine de ce se bucură comunitatea românească din Irlanda de o apreciere atât de înaltă. Mulțumim, Românii din Kilkenny & Carlow 🇷🇴! ... See MoreSee Less

Ambasadorul României în Irlanda Laurențiu-Mihai Ştefan ne-a făcut onoarea să viziteze Kilkenny și comunitatea românească din Kilkenny, pentru a vedea și simții la prima mână pulsul diasporei românești din Irlanda.Apreciem foarte mult interesul său de a sta de vorba cu noi, relaxat, prietenos și autentic interesat să înțeleagă cum trăim, cu ce ne ocupăm, cum sunt familiile noastre, copiii. A părut puțin mirat ca un român să dețină un restaurant cu specific spaniol în Irlanda, dar se pare ca a fost încântat de explozia de arome mediteraneene pe care le-a experiementat la cina luata la The Grapevine impreuna cu soția și colegii săi, servind o diversitate de tapas si mai ales celebra noastra Paella Valenciana, iar selecția noastră de vinuri spaniole a degustat-o cu moderatia specifica unui diplomat.Vă mulțumim domnule Ambasador pentru vizită și pentru cuvintele de apreciere pe care ați avut amabilitatea să ni le adresați în persoană. Vă mai așteptăm! Kilkenny este la o aruncătură de băț de Dublin, weekend-urile sunt lungi în Irlanda, iar la The Grapevine e loc pentru toată Amabasada României în Irlanda Romanian Embassy 🙂Florin Sima & Team #RomanianEmbassyinIreland #RomanianAmbassador #TheGrapevine #kilkenny #happykilkenny #spanishfood #paella #tapasrestaurant #romaniancommunity #diaspora ##DiasporaEuropeană ...
