It's St Patrick's Day today. In fact today and tomorrow are public holidays and then there is the weekend.
I think it's wonderful that the 4.5 million people in Ireland and the ninety or over 100 million ("I think?") Irish diaspora around the world can celebrate this day. There are 6 million people in Blighty who have an Irish parent (like me) or grandparent. Which is a whopping ten percent of the population.
A few years ago a few of us saw a West Cork band called Rubicon play outside the Boston bar in Bantry. They sing traditional songs and even Rock covers like the Journey song. I particularly like the last section of their take on the song. Enjoy and Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
