Brandon, Cé Bhréannain
Ireland
Cé Bhréannain or Bréanainn (anglicised as Brandon)[1] is a Gaeltacht village on the northern coast of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. It lies directly north of Dingle, at the foot of Mount Brandon and on the shores of Brandon Bay. The ancient Celtic Harvest Festival, a pre-Christian celebration, Féile Lughnasa that takes place annually in the village and surrounding area centered on the last Sunday of July. Over thirty species of fish have been recorded in the waters off the bay. While the open sea, with Mount Brandon as a backdrop has many inlets and coves waiting to be explored. Brandon Bay is one of the top windsurfing locations in Ireland. Host of three PWA professional wave sailing events in 2000, 2001 and 2002, it is home to several windsurfing schools catering to all levels from beginner to advanced. The Maharees, a sandy peninsula between Brandon Bay and Tralee Bay is where most windsurfing activity is based. Great locations include Sandy Bay for beginners, Scraggane Bay for intermediates on flat water and Brandon Bay itself for advanced wave sailing. Surfing is also growing quickly in the Maharees with wave conditions as big as anything in Ireland.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
