The story about your name made me smile because I had the opposite problem when I lived in Dublin. My name is Italian - Chiara - and is pronounced "Key-Are-Ah" but everybody called me Keer-Ah, probably being more familiar with that name. The ironic thing is that Ciara comes from the Gaelic word for dark while Chiara comes from the Latin word for light...you and I are like yin and yang :mrgreen:

By the way, I'm taking Irish set dancing classes...anybody out there fond of Irish set dancing?

Haha Nice. Thats kind of funny for me too because in my school there's this other person in my year called Chiara Green which is only a letter and a half off my name - Ciara Greer - So people kept getting confused about who's who. It's really wierd. My friends laughed when they found out they my name meant "The Dark One" saying that I'm all evil etc lol, It's funnier if you take it that way but I'm pretty sure it means "dark haired" rather than my morality. My mum said that she named me wrong because I'm really Blonde.

The Toy Show is on before christmas every year.It's the Late Late Show that is on every friday and is now hosted by Pat Kenny but on this show they look at heaps of toys and have little kiddies testing them and reviewing them and its then called the Late Late Toy Show and every child in the country stays up late watching it and annoying their parents with "Mammy I want that" every five seconds.And I am still so much of a child as to still get really excited about it! :lol: I also marks for adults that they can no longer deny that christmas is coming no matter how much they wish otherwise.
Gay Byrne used to do the Late Late but Pat does it now and he basically hates kids and people in general so no one watches the late late except for when the toy show's on!
Oh Yeah,and Dustin the turkey is on it every year.Dustin is a puppet that presents kids shows on RTE 2.If you saw the Eurovision song contest this year,he was our really crap entry and we only sent him cos no one gives a crap about the eurovision anymore.

Hahaha! that's totally true over here too! I think that only 1/100 of the population even knew what our song was :lol:
I found out last week that ABBA won in My City - i was like WHAAT?? Since when did they do Eurovision here?"

Yeh sorry - I know none of this is about Ireland.
