    Happy St. Patrick's Day and an Irish tartan

    Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

    There are so many beautiful Irish tartans. I especially like the ones woven by House of Edgar.

    Here's a kilt-skirt in the County Cork tartan....

    Because I've not yet determined if my great-great Grand-Daddy Dyer was Scottish or Irish (I'm very certain he was at least one or the other), I plan to get a second Irish tartan kilt someday (I'm wearing my Irish National today, naturally). My understanding is the Dyers (O Duibhir/Dwyer/Dwier/Etc.) primarily originated or were concentrated in Tipperary, so a Tipperary tartan it will likely be.

    Happy St. Pat's To All My Kilted Brethren (And Kilted Skirt-ed Sisters)! Sláinte!
    Best Regards,

    Here's another one, County Roscommon....



    I pleated it to the gold stripe....



    The idea was to have the rust color flash from behind the pleats when the man walked...

    I have a kilt in the House of Edgar Co Cork sett. It is indeed a nice tartan. Someday maybe I will get the other one (Marton Mills), which is predominantly red. I don't have any tartans that are mostly red.

    My mother has traced her father's male line back to the Cove of Cork, or Cobh as it is now called in the Irish (ironically, at the time the town was established in 1725 Irish was considered a dead language, so the English version of the name is the original!).
