Congratulation to Angela Medendorp!

Congratulations to Angela Medendorp for winning my fabulous and unique Irish gift...a piece of Ireland from the folks at A Piece of Ireland and the Macroom Land Trust!

Angela will receive a certificate of ownership for a plot of land in West Cork, Ireland, as part of the Macroom Land Trust's land preservationist scheme to help preserve part of the West Cork Greenbelt.

Some interesting Macroom facts:

  • Macroom is noted in the annals since 550 ad
  • A main region in Ireland for Druid places of learning
  • Brian Boru fought battle here to claim Kingdom of Munster
  • Headquarters of the McCarthy clan from 13th century (see Blarney Castle)
  • Homeplace of St. Finbarr, Founder of Cork
  • William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania lived here

And loads more. A very interesting region to explore, and a great base for sightseeing the south and southwest of Ireland.

Congratulations, Angela!
