Re: Greetings and Question
- Though maybe some other readers here have more specifics to offer...
I did a little Google searching around to see what I could come up with, and "sca irish persona" did indeed yield some goodies :)
Keep in mind of course this isn't an "sca" link, but rather, that of a member. Some nice links for reading material, and if any old ones won't come up, try putting them in at archive.org to view the cached content... (this happens a LOT with old pages with links. The site is still online but the links are dead ones)
This one has some pretty good thoughts I think, on the Japanese idea.
Just a few thoughts to help get ideas started.
I guess my answer for direction is... looking to others who have done those areas before. :)

Perhaps these files in the CULTURES section of the Florilegium might be of use:
Ireland-lnks (20K) 12/25/03 Web links to medieval Ireland
by Dame Aoife Finn of Ynos Mon.
Ireland-msg (76K) 1/10/10 Irish culture, dress. Points of interest.
Really, you may need to pin things down a bit closer, since early Irish clothes and culture differed quite a bit from late period, depending upon the class of person you are creating.
Some files in the CLOTHING section:
cl-Ireland-msg (98K) 2/ 6/08 Medieval Irish clothing.
Irish-Brat-art (20K) 2/14/09 "Weaving an 11th Century Irish Brat"
by THL Cassandra of Glastonbury.
Here's a file on period Irish food:
