First of all: I am new to this forum.
Second of all:My name's Martin, and I'm working on my Phd thesis on Irish Identity.
In some time in the future I will be preparing for the research part of my thesis. If any of you would like to help with the research (survey) - please contact me. Some time next year I will be sending my survey to poeple in Ireland, so I need as many contacts as possible.
Third of all: The thread I am starting now and your comments are going to help me with my research.
Firstly, I would like to know: What is Irishness? How do you describe it? What are the elements that makes Irishness?
Secondly, I would like to know: Are you proud that you are Irish? What are the elements of Irish pride (and I don't mean the bread )
What things you are proud the most? And why?
I know that there are a lot of questions. But what I would like to get from you - is a discussion on those topics (Irish Identity, Irishness and Irish Pride).
If you have any questions. Or if you want to help me with my future research. E-mail me on: <snip>
