all the plaid around, I decided to look into my own connection to tartans. Like many people, I have a pan-European heritage, including Scotch, English, Dutch, Czech and French. My Scottish ancestors were from the Kennedy clan. I am named after the Scottish island Ailsa Craig and my name in Gaelic is Aillse. As a child, I did Highland dancing (and thought I was alone till I found out my friend, La Femme, Highland danced as well!).
The Kennedy seal - "Consider The End" (how ominous):
And the Kennedy tartan:Does anyone else have any clan pride that they're willing to wear on their sleeve?
