Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Growing up Irish in St. Paul, Minnesota made March 17th an official holiday! (Okay...only a quarter Irish but on St. Pat's day, whose counting?) We attended the big downtown parade and walked under the “Flaherty” banner. Our dinner was home cooked corned beef and cabbage. We didn’t dance, but sang the “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” all day! It was fun to celebrate our heritage.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to share some fun Minnesota Irish websites. Enjoy!

May you have all the happiness
and luck that life can hold—
And at the end of all your rainbows
may you find a pot of gold.Traditional Irish Toast
