For millions of Irish Americans, their Irish cultural roots are at the essence of what defines them - a powerful cultural identity that shapes who they are, and how they lived their lives.
Today part of being Irish in America is nostalgia for the land of Ireland.
A handful of the old country can bring back floods of memories and emotions. For Irish Americans, holding the land of Ireland in their hands, and scattering it on the coffins or urns of loved ones evokes a powerful sensation of honoring this sense of cultural identity.
Most importantly however, it allows them to lay their loved ones to their final rest amid the very earth which was home to their ancestors.
The earth from where we came from plays a mystical, powerful and emotional role in forming who we are today, and how we wish to be remembered.
For no group is this emotion stronger than for the Irish American community.
