Take Pride in Ireland's Ginger Hair-itage !

Take Pride in Ireland's Ginger Hair-itage !
Irish Redhead Convention 2016
Red Hair is a very rare and special trait found in just 1-2 percent of the worlds population .
 

It is most prevalent in descendants of the Celts who ruled much of Europe , Great Britain and Ireland around 300 BC 
 
Descriptions of the Celts and their red hair can be found in the writings of their enemy - the Romans .

In the first century BC , the Roman empires beginning with Julius Casear began conquering celtic lands accross Europe .
 

According to Roman historian Titus Livius , the Roman general Manlius Vulso described the Celtic people of Asia Minor as having .. "flowing red hair" .. "Their tall bodies, their flowing red hair, gigantic shields and long swords, together with their howling as they go into battle, their shouts and leapings and the fearful din of arms as they batter their shields according to some kind of ancestral custom—all these things are designed to terrify! "
 

Fourth-century Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus wrote of the Celts .. "Almost all are tall and fair-skinned, with reddish hair. Their savage eyes make them fearful objects; they are eager to quarrel and excessively truculent. When, in the course of a dispute, any of them calls in his wife, a creature with gleaming eyes much stronger than her husband, they are more than a match for a whole group of foreigners; especially when the woman, with swollen neck and gnashing teeth, swings her great white arms and begins to deliver a rain of punches mixed with kicks, like missiles launched by the twisted strings of a catapult"
 
While Second century Roman historian Dio Cassius describes the Celtic Queen Boudicca , who led a revolt against Roman rule in Britain in 60/61 AD as .. "in appearance most terrifying, in the glance of her eye most fierce, and her voice was harsh , a great mass of the tawniest hair fell to her hips "

While the Roman armies destroyed much of the celtic civilisations in mainland europe , they never reached Ireland and our Celtic genes remain the strongest to this day .  It is estimated that at least two-thirds of Irish people belong to the Celtic gene group R1b-L21 while in Britain its one-third. 

Its of no surprise then that Ireland would have the highest rate of Red hair in the world (10% - 30%) , followed by Scotland (10 - 25%) and Wales (10 - 15%) . Other hotspots for red hair include parts of northern France , the Netherlands , Belgium, Switzerland and Norway . Outside of Europe , a region in Russia called Udmurtia boasts the highest frequency of Redheads outside of europe with more than 10% of its inhabitants having red hair .

Redhead Festivals  
 

Every year Redhead festivals are held in many Countries . In the Netherlands , Redhead Day (Roodharigendag) takes place in the first weekend of September in the city of Tilburg, the two day festival attracts attendance from 50 countries and is free due to sponsorship of the local government . In the USA , a Ginger Pride Parade takes place each March in the city of Rome in Floyd County Georgia , while in Italy, redheads gather in the city of Milan each May to celebrate their gingerness.

Ireland Redhead Festival 

Up until recent years , Ireland too celebrated its ginger people .
 

Between 2010 and 2016 , the seaside village of Crosshaven in Co Cork was home to Ireland's lively redhead Convention.
 

The festival ran for seven years , attracting Redheads from all over Ireland and Abroad . From Carrot-tossing compeititions to best red eyebrows and most freckles , orange lawn bowling , giant ginger jenga and treasure trails to live music , seminars on redhead history and ginger speed dating , the festival was a mecca for carrot lovers alike culminating in the crowning of the King and Queen of Gingerdom and parade through Crosshaven village.
 

Over its short time , The festival which was founded by Joleen Cronin, a local Photographer in Cork , raised over €30,000 for the Irish Cancer Society . Research has shown that redheads are more susceptible to melanoma and other skin cancers due to their fair skin.
 

In December 2016 , organisers of the convention announced on its Facebook page that due to lack of public funding and a main sponsor, there would be no convention in 2017 , the festival never returned and In May 2018 , organisers notified people that the festival was cancelled for the "forseeable future" .

seems like a bit of craic , why wouldn't Cork Council want to fund this ? please give them a few bob . Crosshaven needs a bit of livening up a bit.
^
here is an opportunity for Cork County Council to show they are committed to Irish Culture , we've already seen how the Irish language is in big trouble in the gaeltacht , more funding is urgently needed for irish cultural events .
^
on the subject of hair , did you know your hair grows fastest between 10am and 11am and then 4pm - 6pm . It grows slowest at night . Altogether , it grows half and inch a month. Just something to mull over.
^
lol , I like that bit about the wives being tougher then the Men . by all accounts the celtic women were tough cookies , not people you'd like to mess with
^
Nice article Charlie, thank you.

It is a great shame for sure. We Irish tend to be either olive skin and dark hair, Red haired and very fair skin or a mixture of both.

IN my family two were / are olive skin with dark hair and one Sister is a natural redhead, freckles and all, though from an early age she would colour her hair. She hated being red / ginger.

Like all redheads when the sun got her it became easy to work out her natural colour, because the increase in freckles would give it away.
^
your sister should be proud to be a ginger . a true celt .
^
Thank You Dublin Lad,

Indeed, my Parents would often say exactly that, that she was a true Celtic Woman!

SHE is now in her mid 40's and her Daughter is an absolute double of her as a child, right down to the fair skin, freckles and (wait for it) Red Hair!.

BUT my Sister even now refuses to let her natural colour shine through!

As my Father (RIP) USED to say, "What is so wrong with being a beautiful Irish Colleen?"

would have loved a bit of carrot topping meself or a bit of red beard

anyone who holds a different opinion in Ireland is called 'far right' . We used to have great debates in Ireland up to fifteen years ago . until things noticeably started to change with uneven debating panels where only one person with a different view to government would be allowed on , then it became acceptable to have nobody at all representing a different view . It really is sad as a country that we cant have reasoned debate without labelling people as far right , fascist , naz

Hi Osul , they are just making the point that Scholfield loved his wife and was happily married to her for 27 years. he even had children out of the relationship . in fairness , he had the last 20 - 25 years to come out as gay if he wanted to , Why did he wait so long ? , because he was happy in the relationship . if i were you , i'd be more worried about the Transgender Lobby , They are telling people who are gay that they are actually just trapped in the wrong bodies and not gay
