My dear readers, your beloved Peasant is going
to take another break this month, as August is the
month in which the Milwaukee Irish Fest takes place.
Therefore, I shall not be posting anything this week
but for this notice.
I shall be getting together with family and friends,
from Ireland as well as from around the country and
of course here in Milwaukee. The festival goes from
Thursday, August 13 through Sunday, August 16.
If any of you are going to be in Milwaukee during
this time frame, come to our Irish Fest! You'll have
so much to see and do; Irish music from performers
from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, the U.S.,
wherever there is Celtic culture --- Irish dishes,
Irish whiskies, Irish theater, discussions on Irish
history and politics, the great and wickedly fast
Irish sport of hurling, a sailing regatta, a tug-of-war
tournament, Irish show dogs, and oh so much more!
For more information visit www.irishfest.com/ .
By the by, check out The High Kings in concert!
They are a hot (and growing hotter!) Irish
singing group of four ridiculously talented singers/
musicians from Ireland who have taken the United
States by storm! And one of the High Kings,
Finbarr Clancy, is a cousin! No blarney!
Meanwhile, do visit National Review Online
for your week's dose of conservative observation
and commentary on the latest political news.
The Peasant shall return after the Milwaukee Irish Fest!
