‘ ‘ There are no strangers, only friends you have not met yet’. – W.B. Yeats. While this old Irish adage is not one for an internet safety class for kids, it does point to that Irish characteristic of quickly making friends ad inviting them to our wedding. There are many types of friends in Ireland. One is HORSE.

HORSE: Regularly proceeded by ‘howiya’, ‘horse’ is a friendly description usually employed in the country for mates who are big enough to play full-back, centre-back or midfield.’
