Post St. Patrick's Day
I just want to wish you all a very happy St. Patrick's Day for Saturday 17th March

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His Hand.

Ger xxx :)

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you, Ger. My only claim to being Irish is by marriage, but I'll take that. A good day to you and your family.

thank you all.. Unfortunately I'll be working, but the other side of that coin is that we will have some money :lol:
Good to see you Tonya. I hope you are doing well. I was wondering where you were,

Craig, I would love to go to the States for St. Patrick's Day, the parades are always fantastic there. Maybe someday I will win the lottery 8)
Cheers :wink:

And a happy St. Patrick's day to you, Ger!
My mother-in-law was born and raised in County Galway (Williamstown area) and came to the US in her late teens. She still has the "green" in her voice, though, and her red hair and green eyes.

And our grandson was born on St. Patrick's day with the brightest red hair and blue eyes you can imagine! He will be 8 tomorrow, and my husband's little godson will be 6. A happy birthday to all the St. Pat's day babies!
