any mums out there from Donegal...or anywhere else in Ireland?

Hi there - I live in London now, but just wanted to say hello as I am from Donegal originally - my parents moved to England when I was 10. We go back quite a lot though - have just come back from a four-day stay, actually.

Whereabouts are you, if you don't mind me asking?

Hi Irishmammy, i'm in belfast so not too far. Good to know there are others on the island typing away.

hello irish mammy,

just found your message, again i'm not much help as i live in england now, but i grew up in donegal, near letterkenny. and just wanted to say hi!.
you could always advertise MN in your local libraries doctors surgery etc and rope in a few more cyber mums. then you'll have a 'wile' lot of people to talk to.

I am in (and from) Dublin. Have lurked on mumsnet for ages and started posting recently. (Very weird, felt like busting in after eavesdropping on a very long conversation!).
I don't know many people here who log on to mumsnet, there are two big ireland-based parenting sites that are v popular, but I love getting the wider perspective of mumsnet (plus more people = more messages to read...)

dinosaur Wed 05-May-04 14:58:20

oh prittymoma - me too! (about 8 miles from L'kenny)

gloworm Wed 05-May-04 15:23:22

dinosaur Wed 05-May-04 15:25:49

Is is just me or does it feel slightly wierd losing some of the anonimity that comes with MN?
...maybe its the "small gossipy town thing"...everyone knows who you are, knows everything about you, etc etc!!!

dinosaur Wed 05-May-04 15:33:15

yes...tbh I don't think I'd have posted that if I still lived there!

gloworm Wed 05-May-04 15:37:32

gloworm Wed 05-May-04 15:41:07

how is your pregnancy going? what do your 2 boys think about idea of new baby?

dinosaur Wed 05-May-04 15:43:34

It's going fine, thanks

DS1 is quite curious about the whole thing, and has been going about rounding up all the "baby" toys saying "This is for the new baby".

DS2 thinks we should call it "Suzie" (the name of Spot's baby sister) and insists that we read about Spot's baby sister every night before bed!

gloworm Wed 05-May-04 15:48:12

its amazing now adaptable they are at that age.
ds can probably never a time when dd wasn't here....he has no idea that most of the clothes/toys she uses were his not so long ago!
He insists that all the baby photos of himself are pictures of her have tried telling him otherwise but he doesnt believe me!

I'm from Dublin (Malahide) but have lived in UK for years, married an Englishman, etc. Considering moving 'home' again but house prices are sooooo expensive now.

gloworm Wed 05-May-04 16:11:50

agree re:house prices, its horendous will probably be renting forever! when are you moving or is it "just a thought" at the moment?
what part of uk are you in?

and why are none of us marrying irishmen

ghengis Wed 05-May-04 16:44:34

DH taking redundancy in September and we are planning at the mo. We are currently in Exeter which is lovely but miss out on family support and the craic! I know lots of lovely Irishmen but I fell in love with DH!

the Irish websites are (European in fact but the Buletin Boards are mainly populated by women in Ireland for some reason) and Rollercoaster is quite informative but the 'craic' is better at eumom.
