St. Patrick 1999

"God made the grass, the air and the rain;
and the grass, the air and the rain made the Irish;
and the Irish turned the grass, the air and the rain back into God."

Sean O"Faolain

"The hospitality of an Irishman is not the running account of posted and ledgered courtesies, as in other countries; it springs, like all his other qualities, his faults, his virtues, directly from his heart."
~ Daniel O' Connell
May those that love us, love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping.

The first Irish celebrations on the date of St. Patrick's death were noisy affairs. As the Irish emigrated around the world, they took the St. Pat's celebration with them, and today parades are held in some of the unlikeliest places you can imagine.
