Sorry I haven't blogged for a week or so. Not a lot happening on our smallholding in Ireland. The Romans never visited Ireland but they named it: Hibernia, which means the land of eternal winters. I think they must of been on their holidays here. Anyway I have still not been able to dig over the veg plot or let the cattle out to graze and have their cows disco when we let them run, dance and jump about.
We went shopping in Dunnes stores in Clonakilty on Saturday for Newcastle Brown Ale and food, yawn. We were amazed to see that they were selling St Patrick's Day merchandise. St Patrick was Welsh and was brought over to Ireland. He founded Christianity here and is said to have drove the snakes out of Ireland. One of my son's told me this joke:
What did St Patrick say when he drove the snakes out of Ireland?
"Are you alright in the back lads?"
England never celebrates St George like the Irish celebrate St Patrick. I wonder why not?
Watched the famous Manchester United v Sheffield United the other day. Think they should start showing tiddly wink matches or train timetables on a Saturday tea time instead.. Bring back wingers and attacking football please!!!!
