Wherever you are in the world, I hope you are having a wonderful Saint Patrick’s Day!
I love that he is the patron saint of the Archdiocese of Melbourne and New York!
Let me share this video with you from Busted Halo. Here they are asking people how much they know about Saint Patrick… while they are decked out in green and shamrocks!
Now is also the perfect time to share some photos from Ireland! These were taken on my trip there in 1999 – so they were taken on Advantix film and I had them digitized a couple of years ago.
This is the main street of Belturbet in County Cavan where my maternal ancestors are from –
This is at the back of the main area of Belturbet –
I loved Cavan. It was in Cavan that I bought my Claddagh ring – that was what we used as my engagement ring.
This is a gorgeous view from somewhere in Tipperary. This is where Mark Barrett Cleary lived, before he left Ireland for Australia.
If you are interested in listening to some Irish music, I have to recommend Now and In Time To Be. This is one of my favourite CDs of ALL TIME. It is the poetry of Yeats, performed by various artists to music. It is absolutely amazing. One track that I play a little too much is Shane McGowan’s rendition of An Irish Airman Forsees His Death.
