I am an Irish gal, born in Dublin, lived in the heart of Galway that is the lovely 'Joyce Country' of Connemara for a chunk of my childhood years, then moved back to Dublin in my teens and now I'm back in the country again in Co. Laois.
Living, Laughing, Loving Ireland's blog is all about growing up and living in Ireland. There are treasures to be found in all corners of the country, some I have not made it to yet, but will eventually. I will share beautiful places I have visited, walks I have taken, cliffs I have stood on, seas I have paddled in, hidden treasures I have found and lots and lots of green green grasses! Enjoy!
