Quoted @DrFrancisYoung

This is an absolutely extraordinary judgement from a @churchofengland consistory court, ruling that the Irish language cannot appear on a memorial on account of 'the passions and feelings connected with the use of

If you are surprised to see the “Irish slaves” meme in circulation once again you are not paying attention. Irish suffering has been weaponised and distorted by racists to deny justice for African Americans for approx two centuries and counting. It’s a reactionary tradition.

In case you were wondering what Irish male friendship can be like.

Random memory of the time I went to the bar to get pints for me and friend. When I got back, he was chatting to two women. 'Vox is an archaeologist, he'll tell you all you want to know', he said. And then bailed.

Here, Cathy Moore shows some artefacts found at Drumclay Crannog

If Cathy & her colleagues weren't so good, then the site would've had lots of Mystery Objects. Their knowledge means we get to know what they are!

Drumclay, probably the finest collection of early medieval and medieval wooden artefacts from Ireland. c.1000 objects from a single site, easily rivals assemblages from Dublin, York etc.
