Calendar 2020

Cover Sheet A3

Dear friends of Ireland,

We would like to present you our latest project: Our calendars for 2020 titled „Irische Impressionen“. They come in three formats, namely in A3, A4 and A5. We were allowed to choose freely from the photographs that were handed in for our photo competition earlier this year – what a range of exceptional pictures that was to work with! I would like to thank all photographers which kindly allowed us to use and publish their photographs – without your consent this project would not have been possible. And I thank Claudia Kottmann, a new member, for her work on the calendars. Between the two of us we managed to design the calendars within a relatively short time. We really hope you will like the result as much as we do…

Please have a sneak view on the look of the 3 calendar versions, enjoy lovely impressions of Ireland – and feel free to order a calendar for yourself or as a gift for someone special. 

We tried to make sure that the prices of the calendars are reasonable and we are happy to offer them to you for the purchase (here: print-) price. For each shipment there is an on-top and a shipping fee of 3,99 € which we hope to minimize by bundling orders on behalf of the society whenever possible. 

The calendar prices are as follows: A5 = 9, 99 €, A4 = 14,99 €, A3 = 19,99 €. 

Delivery has been pretty fast for A5, A4, A3 we normally expect the calendars to be delivered a week after the order has been placed and paid. We kindly ask you to pay to the account number of the society. We will place the order for you after the payment has been received (IBAN DE91 3701 0050 0267 7275 02; BIC PBNKDEFF370). 

We kindly ask you to use the contact template of our Homepage www.deirge-bonn.de or email (info@deirge-bonn.de) to place your order. In order to manage the order for you please provide us with your name, delivery address, format for calendar and amount you wish to order per calendar format.

Here we go: have a look at the calendars! 

You will find pictures of Ireland that are unique and which you will not find in any guidebook.

“Ossian/Oisín: the Great Deception of James MacPherson”

 The Ogham or (Ancient-Irish: Ogam) script (Irish [‘oɣam]) was used in Ireland and some western parts of Britain as well as in Scotland (Scottish Gaelic: ”Oghum”) mainly from the 4th to the 7th century. It was primarily used in order to attach short texts, in most cases personal names, to the edges of Ogham stones or other support material. The name of the script shows strong etymological parallels to Ogma or Ogmios, the Ancient Irish god of oratory. Whether this god, however, is the eponym of Scripture or whether folk etymology made the reference in retrospect, has not yet been clarified.

 Ossian is a supposedly old Gaelic epic from Celtic mythology. These “Songs of Ossian” were actually invented by the Scotsman James Macpherson (1736-1796). He chose Oisín, the son of Fionn mac Cumhail, as the named role model for the title character. The songs are about epically depicted battles and the fates of chosen noble heroes who mostly strove to save kingdoms.(Source Wikipedia; 16.09.2019; Image: James MacPherson, by George Romney (died 1802); Text: https://xtools.wmflabs.org/articleinfo-authorship/de.wikipedia.org/Ossian?uselang=de
