St. Patrick’s Day
Posted March 18, 2013on:
In honour of all my Irish friends, and those who would like to be Irish, I thought I would write this post. I just happened to have finished reading a delightful book, lent to me by a good friend at work, called McGillicuddy McGotham by Leonard Wibberley According to a review on Goodreads, it is a delightful tale of the first leprechaun to visit the United States. A quick, quaint read about a time when the world was a truly foreign place and local lore and legends were not universally understood.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It was written in the 1950’s but the wit of the author and ideas presented are timeless. A great book to read at the end of a long tough day. It will definitely make you laugh out loud. (notice I wrote that out in full!)
Niamh Clune has written a poignant story Children of Lir on her blog that is well worth reading
There are some great Irish quotes on The Secret Keeper’s site http://thesecretkeeper.net/2013/03/17/celebration-of-the-green–
This is one of them.
I hope you are all enjoying this special day whether you are Irish or not!
