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

"I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have gone ourselves." (E. M. Forster)
