Professor Dauvit Broun: ‘Ireland and the beginnings of Scotland’. Trinity College, Dublin. – YouTube

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:

  1. I watched this video and was fascinated by much of what was said. There is a name in my family tree, McGrother, that is supposed to have come to Ireland from Scotland in the Plantation of Ulster, according to one line of thought. Others say it goes as far back as the ancient Kingdom of Oriel and is an old Monaghan name from way before the 1600’s. I think it’s the latter, as the Monaghan McGrothers/McGroders are Catholic and it would be unlikely that Protestants coming to Ireland in the Plantation of Ulster would subsequently convert to Catholicism. Now you can see why I was so interested in that lecture. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
