The Irish Roots Cafe
Hedge School


“ Schools were outlawed... 
They taught in fields, 
by the side of the road....
whenever and wherever possible"

Welcome to my Hedge Row !  
We make Books, Blogs and Broadcasts on Irish Genealogy; History; Language & Song. We teach, sing, publish and consult 1 to 1;  and on the web:  click for my school

Genealogy
Mike began the worlds first Irish genealogy podcast, and is the most published author in the field. He's written a book for every county in Ireland! We've exhibited and consulted at the Dublin, Ohio Irish Fest for 14 years. Learn more, including consultations and Videos here:  irishroots.com/mike/Irish

Rare Books We Publish
60 Books, including my 34 book set on Irish Genealogy and Heraldy, plus classics like the Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters and Missouri Irish. Our traveling library is a one of a kind resource... click below for all of our books

Podcasts & Videos
We've made 300 shows just for you in our subject areas of Genealogy; History; Old Style Song; Language; Heraldry; and Irish America.  Our hedge school CD's cover the same topics !  We can broadcast and record shows live at your event as well.

Song
Mike sings traditional Irish Songs in Irish and English.  This includes rare performances of Sean Nós song, along with the history that goes with it !  This is well suited for small, intimate shows, and the Irish Roots Cafe band stands ready!
