Go raibh maith agat
or thank you in Irish.
I'm delighted you decided to sign-up for this additional e-mail series from Irish American Mom. Here we'll take a look at some of the most viewed and most appreciated stories featured on this website.
I've called this series our Irish Ancestral and Heritage Trail E-mail Series, and I hope you'll enjoy these carefully curated recipes and ramblings.
What to Expect Along The Way:
The first few e-mails you'll receive are designed for new readers, and help introduce how this website works, and how we strive to create a warm, welcoming, and supportive Irish American Community here.
After that you'll see an additional email on Wednesdays, highlighting our culture and heritage.
We'll take a look at hidden gems along the highways and byways of Ireland, delve into our culture and customs, and share a few of the most popular recipes found on this site.
You'll also continue to receive our regular weekend update highlighting new content.
If you've been a subscriber for a few years, you may recognize posts from the past in this series. Just a little warning, since I don't wish to overwhelm your inbox to the point of frustration.
However, I believe the comment section in many of these old posts, is well worth another look. It's your words, insights and family stories that turn some of my old content, into memories I treasure.
And as always, you can unsubscribe any time you wish, but I hope you'll stick around.
Thank you for all of your support, your kind words, and especially for joining me on this Irish American journey of discovery.
Le gach dea-ghuí,
With every good wish (or prayer)
