Celtic Round Hounds

Dogs o’ War they be. Irish Wolfhounds were used as weapons, as they could take a man off his horse for killing by others. Celtic dogs are also regarded as good luck as they were the protectors of highways and crossroads, and of lost souls in the Celtic Otherworld.

Many Irish myths and legends include mentions of hounds. The most famous involves the Celtic hero Cuchulainn (The Hound of Ulster) or (The Hound of Culann) who stroked a blacksmith’s Celtic hound with his bare hands. When Culann, the blacksmith asked who would now guard his shop the young Cuchulainn offered to take the dog’s place thus gaining himself the title of ‘The hound of Culann’. The offer was turned down and Cuchulainn went on to become one of the greatest warrior legends of that era, but the nickname stuck. Other famous Irish hounds were Bran and Seolan who belonged to the warrior, Fionn mac Cumhaill. The mother of Bran and Sceolan was Tuiren, and was Fionn Mac Cumhaill’s aunt, transformed into a hound by a fairy or Sidhe. [via]

Whether you like it or not, everyone becomes Irish tomorrow, so here’s a big green steaming pile of The Overnight Open Thread.

    my ex wife’s grandma lived through the 1916 rising in dublin. i had the great honor to take her from her retirement home at 8 am one morning and drive her into dublin so i could pick her brain. my ex and her mum went shopping, i sprang grama!

    i got the whole and unexpurgated history of the rising over the next 14 hours as we went from pub to place. i still have my notes of that adventure.

    i look at them every once in a while, and smile

    The Wolfhounds are remarkable & huge.
    Any dog that can take down a wolf has my respect.
    They would protect the flock from wolves & other

    This conversation reminds me of me dear old grandfar.
    The definition of contrarian he was.
    A year after his not too distant Irish cousin was executed for his part in the Easter Uprising, Gramps married his German girlfriend, signed on as a Doughboy and marched off to fight the Kaiser.

    If you want a good read on the times try ‘Trinity’ by Leon Uris.

    If you’re not Irish you’ll learn a lot.
    If you are you won’t be able to put it down.

    Do you know where the phrase ‘beyond the pale’ is from?

    In the time of Elizabeth I, when the Brits were being beastly to the Irish, there was one area inside Dublin proper called The Pale where the Brits were safe. To leave it was risky and called going beyond the Pale.

    Another version of Beyond the Pale

    2006: (Also see ‘beyond the pale – Dublin, Ireland). That area of Iraq outside the US trenches surrounding Baghdad, where ‘democracy’ has failed to flower. Lawless (see: ref. ‘Sharia’), anarchic territory under the influence of sunni-VS.-shia warlords and suicide bombers.
    “Gee, sure we brought deemocrazy to I-rak. It’s just those terrorists beyond the pale that don’t want to enjoy freedom. Baghdad, Iraq after US-lead invasion.

    In the merry month of June from my home I started left the girls
    Me darling mother drank a pint of beer, my grief and tears to
    Smother then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born cut
    A stout blackthorn to banish ghosts and goblin, brand-new
    Pair of brogues, rattling o’er the bogs frightening all the dogs

    Of Taum nearly brokenhearted saluted me father dear, kissed
    In Mullingar last night, I rested limbs so weary started by
    On the rocky road to Dublin.
    To keep me heart from sinking that’s the daddy’s cure when
    Daylight next morning bright and early took a drop of the pure
    He’s on the drinking see the lassies smile, laughing all the
    While at me darling style, would set your heart a-bubblin’
    Asked me was I hired, wages I required ’til I was almost tired
    Of the rocky road to Dublin.

    Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road and all the
    Chorus:
    Way to Dublin, whack-fol-la-de-da!

    In Dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pity to be so soon
    Deprived a view of that fine city decided to take a stroll all
    Among the quality bundle, it was stole in that neat locality
    Something crossed my mind when I looked behind no bundle
    Could I find upon me stick a-wobblin’ crying for a rogue said
    To Dublin.
    Me connaught brogue wasn’t much in-vogue on the rocky road

    From there I got away, me spirits never failing landed on the
    Quay just as the ship was sailing captain at me roared, said
    That no room had he then I jumped aboard a cabin found for
    Daddy down among the pigs, played some funny rigs, danced
    Wished myself was dead or better far instead on the rocky
    Road to Dublin.
    Some hearty jigs, the water ’round me bubblin’ off to hollyhead

    Fool, I could no longer stand it blood began to boil, temper
    The boys in Liverpool, when we safely landed called myself a
    Me soul, says I, let the shellaillagh fly some galway boys
    I was losing poor old Erin’s Isle they began abusing hooray
    Were nigh, saw I was a-hobblin’ with a loud array, they joined
    Me in the fray and soon we cleared the way on the rocky road
    To Dublin

    It just dawned on me that I can keep commenting on this thread by re-using the same post tonight by updating it. Cool. Saves a lot of trouble.

    Pray for Dolores Gonzales Perez.

    Dody was diagnosed with multiple cancers recently, and decided to forgo chemotherapy. The missus and I saw her last Thursday. She was able to talk, and I made her laugh a bit before her meds kicked in.

    Her prescriptions are enough to kill a person – morphine injections, morphine patch, morphine pills.

    Dody was cool. She did sexy voice overs for commercials, and she was good looking, too. 5 foot 10 or so and busty, she was one of the few women who could have made me stray…

    Pretoria, you were always there
    Because you lay in my vault I call you my home
    I never forget your name
    Pretoria, asking if my child
    Is the name so much so bitter and bad
    Why throw you away

    And I know that the country should exist
    together,
    But it hurts so many people
    If all those old names perish
    Pretoria, Pretoria, I’ll never forget your name

    Not dead yet, eh?

    My relatives may have taken part in the Easter Rebellion, but my direct ancestors were alread here in America. But I suspect the Easter Rebellion was pretty small stuff in County Leitrim andyway. Still the poorest, least populous county in Ireland.


  185. 187 | March 17, 2013 4:58 am

    Okay, now it’s dead.

    The wife’s family tree, OTOH, is English. English, English, English, with just a bit of English thrown in for variety, as far back as records go. And for her main descent lines, they go back pretty damned far. All kinds of interesting relatives, including George Washington and Daniel Morgan, all documented to DAR standards.

    188 | March 17, 2013 5:09 am

    @ Mike C.:
    That is fascinating. I’m always interested in these kind of facts. Washington and Morgan (hero of Cowpens) were great American heroes. I wish all Americans were aware of what it took to create this country and what their ancestors did to effect that.

    The Celtic term “bean sidhe” is prounounced “beyan ishee” and is the word known as “banshee.”

    @ coldwarrior:
    Lemme know. I might be in the area.


  189. 191 | March 17, 2013 5:35 am

    @ BatGuano:

    After the war, Morgan came back to this area and built and operated a mill near Berryville, VA. One of the wife’s brothers (the gun nut one, and my personal favorite amongst her siblings) had a big hand in restoring that mill a number of years back – very cool. Our town here is where Washington had his office (still standing) back when he was starting out and working as a surveyor for Lord Fairfax. We’re up to our everlovings in history in these parts. A number of Mort Kunstler paintings (http://mortkunstler.com/) depict loacal and town scenes, and it’s easy to spot excactly where they are, as many of the buildings are still here.

    wisdom from gov palin:

    “The last thing we need is Washington D.C. vetting our candidates,” she said, criticizing the GOP politicos who have had little success. And she referred to “the architects,” a none-too-subtle dig at Karl Rove, Stu Stevens, and others.

    She wrapped up the speech with a call to action: “We deserve better than the people who call themselves our leaders,” she said. “But we won’t get it unless we’re ready to fight, and this is one fight that is worth it.”

    There was just a former GOP Congressman, LaTureete who now heads some

    He is really Old Guard & blames the Tea Party for no budget comprimise

    The Republican mainstream is losing its grip & I get the feeling that they
