Shamrocks are beautiful, if somewhat weedy once they are established. "Erin go bragh!"
I need to read seriously the Irish history which includes some of my ancestors, as well as the Scottish ones who were forced to move to Ireland by the British. I don't know which side is right or wrong. And lots of wonderful music has been written.
I love the myths. Bridgid.
The ancient sites. Newgrange.
So I will salute St. Patrick's day, which was brought by the immigrants from Ireland to the US...and still goes strong each March 17. Erin go bragh!
