Explore Ireland by Rail
This July, Liam and I are back in Ireland traveling to some of the country’s most beautiful locations. While we’re there, we’ll begin a new project I feel very passionate about. We’ll be exploring the Emerald Isle by train — stopping in various towns and cities along the way to show the sites and experiences that await.
In true Irish Fireside form, we’ll be sharing the journey with our digital friends (that’s you!) with a steady stream of blog entries, HD videos, Twitter updates, Flickr uploads, Facebook posts and podcast episodes.
Sound like fun? We think so too. Plus, we’ve got www.DiscoverIreland.com on board along with our many friends dotted across Ireland to help us uncover the ins and outs of traveling by train in the Republic.
Support the Project
You’re invited to suggest your favorite destinations along Ireland’s rail system. We’d love to hear what you recommend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on our comment line at 414-292-9269.
Since we’re funding this project out of our own pockets, we’re looking at every opportunity to help offset costs… media discounts, partnerships and sponsorships (these relationships will be disclosed). Our biggest expenses will include travel, accommodations, tech equipment and data hosting. If you are connected with a potential partner or sponsor, let us know.
We’re also inviting our fans to help out with micro-payments of $5, $10 or more. These small contributions can really add up and help put a dent in our expenses and allow us to do more and share more.
Every donation will get a mention on our Wall of Honor that will go on the front page of www.IrishFireside.com. For those who give $25 or more, we’ll be sending a postcard from Ireland… the real, handwritten kind you can hang on the fridge. And for those who can afford $100 or more, we’ll be sending a special gift from Ireland.
