Genealogy and names
Genealogy has long been a favorite pastime in Ireland, but thanks to a complicated history of raids and invasions, tracking Irish pedigrees can be tricky. If you manage to get back far enough, you'll discover that everyone came from somewhere else, and their parents were probably not Irish. Tracing your roots is a good way to understand the theory of the great melting pot. We are all, it seems, a jumbled mix of heritage and origins.
