CULTURE SNIPPET
There are many references to food and drink in early Irish literature. Honey seems to have been widely eaten and used in the making of mead. The old stories also contain many references to banquets, although these may well be greatly exaggerated and provide little insight into everyday diet. There are also many references to fulacht fia, which are archaeological sites commonly believed to have once been used for cooking venison.

Irish was the predominant language of the Irish people for most of their recorded history, and they brought their Gaelic speech with them to other countries, notably Scotland and the Isle of Man where it gave rise to Scottish Gaelic and Manx.

The clurichaun is an Irish fairy which resembles the leprechaun. Some folklorists describe the clurichaun as a night form of the leprechaun, who goes out to drink after finishing his daily chores.   They are invariably always drunk and surly! It is said that if you treat them well they will protect your wine cellar, otherwise they will wreak havoc on your home and spoil your wine stock!

Irish set dancing (also referred to as country set dancing) are dances based on French quadrilles that were adapted by the Irish by integrating their sean-nós (old style) steps and Irish music. Historically, it is likely that sean-nós dance influenced the development of many American and Canadian traditional percussive dance forms, such as buck dancing, flatfooting, clogging, and tap dancing.
