    1. I’ll look forward to seeing them! It always strikes me as funny that St Pat’s is celebrated more out of Ireland than it is within Ireland. Out town doesn’t even have a parade, and unless you live in Dublin, the parades usually consist of little more than a few tractors lol! If it weren’t for a few shamrocks in the odd shop window, and a day off school for the kids, you wouldn’t even know…

        1. Aha! The banshee nearly made it into my post but narrowly missed out as I didnt want the post to be too long!

          I think I must be the only person in Ireland NOT to have seen the Quiet Man! Must get round to it!
