    Happy St P's day everyone. Half Irish here.

    And for anyone interested, TCM channel has a documentary coming on at 8:30EST this morning. It's about the people who live off the coast of Ireland and how they struggle to exist with poor farmland and hunting sharks. Might be a good one.

    May the road rise to meet you
    May the wind be always at your back
    The sun shine warm upon your face
    The rain fall soft upon your fields
    And until we meet again
    May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

    May those who love us, love us,
    and those who don't, may God turn their hearts,

    and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles
    so we'll know them by their limping.:41:

    Corned Beef and Cabbage is more of an American thing.

    When the Irish lived in ghettos in NYC, there were Jewish butchers there too. It was the latter that got the Irish hooked on Corned Beef.

    Originally, they used....Bacon.

    I knew an Irish girl who was born in Ireland and spent her childhood there (no accent).

    She said that St. Patrick's Day there was a solemn,religious holiday--more akin to our Thanksgiving--and not a raucous party. They would even close the schools for a week like at Christmas and Easter.

    I rather like our way better.

    We spent St.Particks day in Dublin a few years ago,they were definitely celebrating it. That’s where my love of Guinness began. Friendliest people I ever met..

    Happy St Patrick's Day!!! Someone pointed out an interesting fact today, that St Patrick was not Irish, but English, going back to witness to the people who held him captive for years. How does that make the Irish feel about that? Just a curious thought, keep it light hearted. Everyone is Irish today. :D :rolleyes:

    That's true. It is widely known that he was captured by the Irish and was a slave for six years before escaping.

    His exact birthplace (whether England or Wales) is unclear. But Rome controlled large portions of that island. It is probably more accurate to say that he was Romano-British from an aristocratic family, i.e.--Roman. He wrote in Latin and signed his name "Patricus."

    After escaping Ireland, he obtained religious training and then went back. That is the important part.

    If I went somewhere on M.L. King Day in black face makeup there would be a lot of offended people of all colors, and it could cost jobs. But the same standard has never taken hold true for we Irish -- so while you’re out pretending to be leprechauns in your Kelly green top hats and bowties and your kiss me I’m Irish pins; we Irish pretend it’s no big deal.

    I’m Irish, my great great grandfather arrived here during the Civil War and the poor half starved SOB arrived on one boat and was put on a second and promptly shipped off to fight down south. He had been pressed into service for several years in the British army so he was an experienced vet and soon became an NCO in the Union Army.

    Many Irish after the war went out west and built the transcendental railroads, or joined the fire departments, both dangerous and at the time very low paying jobs. Mine came up north to he city, lived in a coldwater flat and worked 10 hour days in textile mill till he could call for his family back in Cork. “A Mick would do for a dime what a Black wouldn’t do for a quarter” was a common saying about the “lazy Immigrants” taking jobs that no one else wanted away from the natives. That is still said today about what ever group are the newest immigrants.

    Back at home the English used to patrol in Northern Ireland, they would wait to cross in front of an abandoned building for a group of Irish school kids and move through the area with them assuming/hoping we’d not blow up our own kids. They were usually right, blowing up a half dozen kids to kill one Limey was not efficient, but if two or three were in the group --well kids are replaceable. Dying for Ireland has a long history of violence—and memories are even longer.



    Irish Alzheimer’s –I might forget why I’m angry at you—but I’ll never forget how to build a car bomb. :)

    I will be honest. I am not Irish. I am of primarily German and Norwegian descent. However, I am married to a beautiful blue-eyed, red haired Irish lass. St. Patrick's Day is her holiday. She is very proud of her Irish heritage, and not ashamed to tell you so.

    Our kids jokingly tell people that they are neither Irish or German. They are "Germ-ish" (German-Irish). LOL :rolleyes:
