About ME

My name is Brian Kaller; I live in the Irish countryside and write a weekly column for the Nationalist newspaper, as well as articles for Mother Earth News, Resilience.org, the American Conservative, First Things, the Dallas Morning News and others. I’ve appeared on RTE television and mentioned on the BBC programme QI.


In my native USA I worked as a newspaper editor, but here I research and write about traditional ways of life. I garden and keep bees, and I try out traditional skills. 


I read about old methods of food preservation and try them out, most recently bog butter. Finally, I interview elderly neighbours about the way they used to live. 


My articles will be reprinted here as they appear, but for more you can see my old blog or the videos I’ve made on the Youtube channel.
