I love the Wolftones, Maura O'Connell, and the Chieftains.

"Armored cars and tanks and guns,

Come to take away our sons,"

And, it is my sister's birthday on this St. Patricks day, Saints be praised!. She is red-headed, her name is Sheridan, and she has a green clover tattoo on her ankle. As a present I perused through the picture albums of some very good friends who just came back from the Emerald Isle, a trip that I mapped out for them, I might add, even though I have never been there (Which drives me crazy because I want to go so bad!.) So I went over all the pictures and picked one out and had it blown up and framed. It is of a lovely ocean cove with the green and rolling hills coming up from the western shore of Ireland, inbetween Galway and Sligo, with the ever-present rock walls lining the way through the dale. Beautiful!

The Irish an inspiring history in this country.

No Black and Tan for this kid, bring me a half and half!

Cheers!!

Derek H

Quiet please! Warren, start it off when your ready;

"Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling,

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side,

The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying,

'tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.

But come you back when summer's in the meadow,

Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,

'tis I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow,

Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying,

And I am dead, as dead I well may be,

You'll come and find the place where I am lying,

And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me,

And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be,

If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me,

I simply sleep in peace until you come to me."

Cheers, (wipe, wipe)

DH

http://enquirer.com/editions/2003/03/17/loc_stpats17.html, How the day goes in Cincinnati;

quote:
[St. Patrick took a holiday Sunday, but he'll be back at work March 17. Cincinnati's Irish Catholics took the colorful six-foot statue of the patron saint of Ireland from the Holy Cross-Immaculata Church, paraded it around the streets of Mount Adams and then returned it to the church in an annual rite that dates back at least 25 years.

The ''theft'' of the statue by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, a Catholic fraternal society for people of Irish ancestry, is coupled with a memorial Mass to commemorate members who have died in the last year. The theft and return of the statue symbolizes the life of St. Patrick, said Pat Mallory, president of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, St. Patricks Division No. 1. In the fifth century, a 16- year-old named Patricius was kidnapped from Britain and sold into slavery in Ireland. He eventually escaped to modern France, but then returned to Ireland to bring Christianity to his former masters - and took the name Patrick.

It's a neat story, but it probably wasn't the inspiration for the Cincinnati tradition, which began about 25 years ago over a round of drinks at Crowley's Pub, one Hibernian confided. A few years earlier, the historically Irish Holy Cross Church was merged into the historically German Immaculata Church, and Holy Cross's statue of St. Patrick was moved to Immaculata. A few of the men in Crowley's Pub that night didn't like the idea of St. Patrick being housed in what they still saw as a German church, so they decided to ''liberate'' it.

For at least a decade, however, the statue's removal has been an orderly affair that culminates in a parade around Mount Adams./quote]


One day an Englishman, a Scotsman, and an Irishman walked into a pub together. They each buy a pint of Guinness. Just as they were about to enjoy their creamy brew three flies landed in each of their pints and were stuck in the thick head of the beer. The Englishman pushed his beer away in disgust. The Scotsman fished the fly out of his beer and continued drinking it, as if nothing had happened. The Irishman also picked the fly out of his drink, held it out over the beer, and started yelling, "SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT YOU BAS***D!!!!"

O'Connell was staggering home with a small Paddy in his back pocket when he slipped and fell heavily. Struggling to his feet he felt something wet running down his leg. "Please, God," he implored, "let it be blood!'"

One day Sean O'Malley's wife decided to take him up on his offer to go the pub. So, she followed her husband to the public house, sat next to him as he ordered up a pint. "How can you come here," she said, taking a sip of his pint of Guinness, "and drink that awful stuff?" "Now then," he cried, "and you always said I was out enjoying meself!"

Padraic Flaherty came home drunk every evening toward ten. Now, the Missus was never too happy about it, either. So one night she hides in the cemetery and figures to scare the beejeezus out of him. As poor Pat wanders by up from behind a tombstone she jumps in a red devil costume screaming, "Padraic Sean Flaherty, sure and ya' don't give up your drinkin' and it's to Hell I'll take ya'." Pat, undaunted, staggered back and demanded, "Who the hell ARE you?" To that the Missus replied, "I'm the devil, ya' damned old fool." To which Flaherty remarked, "Well then, damned glad to meet you sir, I'm married to yer sister."

An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?" "Just water my son," says the priest. The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?" The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Saints be praised, He's done it again!"
