Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!
Happy St. Patrick's Day on Saturday, March 17th!

Here's to having Irish blood coursing through your veins!

My great-great grandfather Michael McGill was born in County Louth, Ireland...

“We Irish prefer embroideries to plain cloth. To us Irish, memory is a canvas--stretched, primed, and ready for painting on. We love the "story" part of the word "history," and we love it trimmed out with color and drama, ribbons and bows. Listen to our tunes, observe a Celtic scroll: we always decorate our essence.”
-- Frank Delaney

“To be Irish is to know that in the end the world will break your heart.”
-- Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Such beautiful pictures! I had an Irish aunt (by marriage, only) who was as colourful as those photos. I often feel there must be a little Irish blood in me somewhere, if I just look far enough back into my family tree. Three quarters of my family come from the British Isles so the possibility is not that far-fetched. :)
