St. Patrick’s Day Contest Entry: In Love, In Ireland.

In Win A Trip to Ireland by TonyLeave a Comment

Hello, my name is Jason Farrell. I stumbled across this website because I was looking for a way to get my fiance and I to Ireland. We both come from strong Irish families (where the beer flows like water, haha). I am only 22 and don’t have enough money to pay for the both of us to visit our families homeland. We have always dreamt of going back to our roots and experiencing the culture both of our families experienced their whole lives. My friends have moved to Ireland 5 years ago. They now live in Wicklow. My Fiance and I have both missed them a lot and would love to be able to visit them some day. As of right now, my fiance does not know I’m entering this contest because I would love to be able to surprise her with this amazing trip. I know for a fact this trip would change our lives entirely! Like I said, to be able to go back to the country our families have built their lives hundreds of years would be mindblowing. I come from the Farrell family-line and she comes from the Meehan family-line. Another reason I wanted to find a way to get my fiance to Ireland is to see her grandfathers house he grew up in. He moved to America when he was 19 years old and has spent every minute of his life providing for his family. He has had every job possible just to make money and have ends meet. All we have seen is pictures of his house and the address. Her grandfather is the biggest inspiration in her life and she loves him more than anything. My great-grandparents are off the boat Irish as well. They migrated over to America in 1911 in search for better lives. The only memories I have of them are what has been passed down to me on paper. I have the paperwork they received when they first came to America as well as their birth certificates. My great-grandfather was the Fire Chief in New Jersey, which inspired my grandfather to be the same. I do not have plans to become a Fire Chief, but I have graduated the Police Academy in search of finding a Police career. I am very happy that my family chose to come to America, but I have always felt my heart belongs to Ireland. That is why I have entered this contest.
I do believe this trip will impact my fiance’s life more than anything anyone could ever offer her, and it would impact my life the same. I don’t know if I’ll ever have the money to be able to make this dream come true but I will be working my butt off to make sure it happens one day if we couldn’t win. I’ll be hoping and praying that this contest and the judges give us the opportunity to experience such a beautiful and meaningful gift. And if we are chosen, I will find a way to individually thank everyone who helped make this possible for us.
Dia leat!
