It's corned beef, cabbage and potatoes for us tonight-though I'm told this isn't a particularly Irish meal...

However, the inauthenticty can be drowned in Guinness.

Have a Happy One!

Curling! In a green hat, naturally. ;)

Good excuse for a parade and some artificially colored beer but what else?

I didn't get the day off...

There is a nice article in today's London Times [timesonline.co.uk] newspaper, written by an Irishman, which concludes

There have been many shameful moments in Ireland's past. But there is no more a shameful an image of the Emerald Isle than a flatbed truck on March 17 pumping out Danny Boy, populated by stout-clutching inebriates wearing foam Guinness hats and shamrock deely boppers.

I'm being Scottish today, as ever.

Slightly jealous that our national day is nowhere near as renowned as the Irish one, to be sure.

Yeah, somehow here in the states this holiday has become a green Mardi Gras complete with beads and green flashing lights distributed by beer companies. Me? I'm with AkMac, corned beef and guiness.

Reuben for lunch. Hope Momma Murphy isn't too offended by my lack of effort to keep her March 17th traditions alive. Sorry mom, no soda bread either. ;)

Wearin' my green, of course.

My father, not so Irish himself, swears it's shanty Irish, not lace curtain Irish, that I come from. Whatever the faults, they ain't his doin' or so he says! :P (All horse thieves and ne'er-do-wells on his side.)

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
and may your Irish relatives sneak you into heaven
a half hour before the devil knows you're dead.

And be sure to sing, at least once before the day is done . .

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

Everybody sing . . . !

Mapping a lot of Irish (about 206K) .ie/com/net/org/biz/info/eu/mobi websites and categorising them.

Happy Saint Patricks's Day to all.

It is a strange thing to be an invisible (lost my accent) Irishman on this day each year - I fear that nobody, least of all us countrymen, truly understand the odd phenomenon that it has become.

Like I needed an excuse to drink - I'm already Irish!

Hey Happy St Patty's day everyone from a third gen (part) Irish-American. Someone just mentioned Guiness and I just remembered my father in-law left some in the basement. I'm off!
