Kiara's Irish Page

Welcome to my Irish page. I have always loved Ireland, ever since I was four years old and learned a little about my geneology. I dreamed of someday visiting Ireland and used to spend hours pouring over maps and travel guides planning my perfect trip. In 1994, I was introduced to the SCA and found out that I could live the life of an Irish noblewoman. Sort of. This page reflects my interests and research into my Irish persona, Ciar inghean ui Fhothaidh, a 16th Irish woman from County Galway, as well as her various ancestresses of the same name. In other words, I am enamored with all the ages of Ireland and my research reflects that. Please visit my Projects page, to see the progress I have made on my Irish costumes. Please, also, visit my SCA page, to find out more about my other historically related interests and the SCA in general.
