LandLopers Picks of the Week

Irish Fireside

I have always enjoyed Corey’s site as a great resource for all things Irish. As 2010 came to a close, he assembled a terrific list of the top 75 of his favorite articles from around the web. It’s an amazing list and there are a lot of great stories included – and I’m not saying that because LandLopers is mentioned. So curl up next to a roaring fire and read through some of these terrific Irish stories.

She gives us her highlights not by writing about monuments or tourist sites, but food. Food is one of the most important aspects of travel and I love this post.

    Matt thanks so much for including me, although you are so productive I’m starting to think you are really a robot.
