and here we are again, St Patrick's day, the parade, the drinks, the tourists and everything green...

wishing you all a great day. i'm working so no joy here (that's my proposal for "your country. your call". no time off. ever!)

and check the new digital photographs online of the country's library. pretty cool. you might see your grandad Seamus, or your auntie Mary... http://www.nli.ie/en/homepage.aspx

And by the time we stand on our own two feet, we're standing there alone.

Bellies get a mention, for good or bad.

Easy for you to say. Happy St. Patrick's Day. (Just found out what Póg ma thoin means whilst searching what Mully said. :lol: )

An odd thing today. Someone at work mentioned that his wife was Irish "but not the green Irish; she's an orange Irish" - meaning she's not Catholic but Protestant. I've never heard that before!

Me neither, that's interesting. In that case think I'd like to be (half) the white-bit-in-the-middle Irish :)

Happy Paddy's Day everyone. Do most of you get a day off work then? No such luck for George's Day, rubbish.

Yeah, Patrick's Day is a public holiday so it's a day off for most and Sunday pay rates for those who work. :)

St.George? The one who slayed the dragon? That's my elementary school! ... Odd how my mind works when alcohol is involved.

Well I had my 3/4 pint of green beer with coworkers, stumbled home and am now trying to sober up with a pot of tea. I feel swimmingly.

Oh, and would someone please spell out "Beannacht Lá Fhéile Pádraig dibh" phonetically for me? I'd like to know how you pronounce it!

Note to Pigo: dibh refers to you plural .... For just one person, you use duit, pronounced gwitch.

The Club Finals generally are ... Did I hear right that a Clare team made the football final ? How bad a hurler do you have to be to be a Clare Footballer.
I remember one year, I went to the schools rugby final. The 'nure won 3-0. Says it all about the quality of that game.

No day off for me either ... but I do get 2 days off in Marching season though. Feeling very rough this morning, lack of sleep more than drink, but drink played its part ...

Thanks Rocky. (I should've tried saying it last night when my tongue was loose!)

Because gwitch is for when you're addressing a good witch... bwitch, however, is what one drunken lass calls another when they're being nasty to one another.
