Ireland’s Forgotten Cowboys is pleased to announce the publication of “Ireland’s Forgotten Cowboys,” a featured article authored by CuChullaine O’Reilly, founder of the Long Riders Guild.

Cowboys are as American as apple pie, but few of us know where that pie originated.

O’Reilly has enlightened HRL readers as to the origins of an iconic symbol of the west that actually came from Ireland; cowboys.

As founder of the Long Riders Guild, O’Reilly has published multiple equestrian travel books and is a member of the Royal Geographical Society and  Explorer’s Club. The Long Riders Guild is an international association of equestrian explorers which has members in 48 countries.
