My name is Clare and I make videos on YouTube. I recently un-emigrated from Australia because I realised that Ireland might just be the greatest country in the world.

While I was away, I did everything you "have" to do in Australia and it got me thinking that I'd never done - well, anything -  here at home.

I've decided I want to do everything Ireland has to do, and I'm giving myself two years to do it. But I need your help! I need your suggestions to add to the list, and if anyone has any information or contacts that can help me achieve my goal, please get in touch. (full list below)
I will be recording my adventures and uploading videos hopefully every single Thursday on my YouTube Channel about the latest item ticked off the Irish Bucket List.

 The Rock of Cashel, Tipperary

Here's the full list! You can see the status updates (or desperate cries for help) beside each item in italics.

I want to spend the next two years enjoying Ireland to the fullest. If you'd like to help, or come along, or meet up on the way please get in touch. Let's show the world all that Ireland has to offer!
