DDL, my favorite actor of all time. I saw Christie Brown when he visited America to promote his book, ‘my Left Foot’.
No Irish in my family. My grandmother tied orange ribbons in mom’s hair on Saint Patrick’s day. Have a photo of her wearing her ribbon in 1908. Black and white of course, but g’ma wrote on the back it was orange. Mom’s family was Dutch and Protestant, but she ran off with a Catholic. Big problem back then.
Happy Saint Paddy’s Day to you.. Cooking a corned beef brisket today with cabbage, etc. d~
Dianne, corned beef & cabbage made regular appearances at our table, mammy like the fatty brisket, but we preferred the leaner cut. It was a mid week dish and I never remember having it on a St Patrick’s day. Being a major holiday it was a day for a roast, and it depended on what mammy felt like cooking.
We went to a Sham Rock Festival yesterday evening. Didn’t make it in time for the island’s St. Paddy’s Parade.
Not sure how we’ll celebrate today ~ I’m Scotish/ English and BFF is Irish/German/Scottish/English. We enjoy Celtic celebrations.
St Patrick was not born in Ireland he was brought as a slave, or so we were told. I hope you had a good day yesterday, no matter how you spent it. I went for a walk and then finished a knitting project.
Got my Irish flag out for the day, it’s my birthday and both my grandmother’s were Irish and Catholic, and a Scottish grandfather, and a Swedish. Like many in the US we are kind of a mix. Sláinte. Hope you have/had a great day.
A Belated happy birthday, Celia. I enjoyed a very quiet day, ans in honour of the shepherd, I had Shepherds pie for dinner!
Happy St Patrick’s Day! My husband is half Irish.
Thank you Gigi, For a very small country, Our National Holiday is celebrated all over the world.
May those who love us, love us, and those who don’t love us,
may God turn their hearts…
And if He won’t turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles
so we’ll know them by their limping.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Thank you, Brighid, I hope you had a good one!
I love the verse, it is a new one for me.
I am a little late joining you in your festivities due to preoccupations yesterday. It was Holi here and so two great celebrations across the world with two great diaspora!
It was a quiet day in my cul de sac, It was a normal working day here.
That video is an inspiring piece of work. Thanks for sharing that. Happy day after.
Your pal, O’Al
The video went viral the last week, so I thought it was the best way to celebrate our true value.
In America we eat Corned beef and cabbage/carrots on St. Patrick’s day. My Irish neighbor said you don’to eat that in Ireland, is that correct?
Delores, Corned beef and cabbage made regular appearances on our dinner menu, but it was usually a mid week meal. You needed a trusty butcher to carry out the corning properly – at least four days! I on occasion heard the butcher whisper to Mammy “Not this week, Mrs M!” with that he usually suggested something else.
On St Patrick’s Day A large roast with all the trimmings was the order of the day and it was prepared for more than our eight mouths, visitors were part of the day, Mammy often produced a Christmas pudding for dessert with another dessert that might include the colour green!
I have never seen Corned beef on sale in Northern Ireland except for the rubbish in canned form, it all came from South America and bore no resemblance to the real thing.
