M is for Munster

Ireland is divided into four provinces:  Munster, Ulster, Connacht, and Leinster. Munster makes up the south-west corner of Ireland and includes the following counties:  Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford.

My dad is a Munster man.  He was born in Munster.  And his surname, Moynihan, means "Munsterman."  I was going to tell you all about the name Moynihan today, but I will have to save that for another day.


  1. You still picked a good M subject to post about. I'm learning about all sorts of things the world over, everywhere from Australia to Ireland. The facts you've presented give me a better understanding of the world around me, even from places too far for me to travel.

    Thanks for posting, and it's a pleasure to meet you via A-Z!

  2. Thanks for coming by. More on Munster in my N post today, from the perspective of 12 year old Irish kids from 1936.
