Robert Sullivan grew up in an Irish-German household in the New York City area. His relationship with his maternal grandfather, who was born in County Kerry, formed the foundation for a long-running interest in Ireland and Irish culture. It grew on a first visit to Ireland in 1975. Staying in the simple cottage of his grandfather’s step-sister in a remote outpost on the Beara Peninsula, he became fascinated with the durability of Irish culture, even in the face of the country’s rapid modernization. After several return visits, he created a website ireland-fun-facts.com, which has allowed him to indulge his ongoing fascination with all that makes Ireland unique.
