History of The Island and Counties
All our laws, traditions and the reasons we do certain things certain ways as a society are the legacy of our history and earlier generations. A legacy is anything that is handed down to a person or culture from an ancestor, predecessor or an earlier era. Something as simple as the colour of your hair and eyes can be considered a legacy from your ancetors.

Ireland has a very rich legacy which, while many outside Ireland know little about, has had an influence not only on life in Ireland but around the world.

One simple example is the word used the world over for the wedding night. Honeymoon comes from an Irish tradition when people lived in castles ( you have to read it yourself! ).

The history, its political roots and even the meaning behind a country's flag all form part of the legacy has been handed down and will be handed down to generations yet to come.
