For those of you just joining the blog or long-time readers, I wanted to explain a bit about its purpose. This blog chronicles my move to Ireland and life as an ex-pat. Food tends to be a main topic, but the purpose of this blog is to share my experiences with those who are interested in Cork/Ireland, living overseas, or want to see photos of my meals.

According to the English Irish Dictionary (www.englishirishdictionary.com), Sláinte translates to mean ‘health’. It is used like ‘cheers!’. It is pronounced something like: ’slawn-cha’, ’slawnt-ya’, or ’slawn-che’. It was explained to me as being pronounced as if you are saying ‘lawn chair’ super quickly with an ’s’ in the beginning and no ‘r’ at the end. If that explanation does not work for you, at least it will provide some entertainment.


Enough about me. What are you thinking?
