I suppose that, as a resident of Ireland, it is incumbent on me to say a few words in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t really know what to say. We’re not doing anything to celebrate. There is a parade in town, but between the rain that’s bucketing down right now and the often-drunken crowds lining the streets, we opted to stay home and have our bathroom tiled. No corned beef and cabbage here (what Americans call corned beef is unknown here). I did make soda bread today, but I do that almost every day anyway.
However, I will leave you with some pictures of stunning scenes from this lovely island that even my pathetic photography skills couldn’t entirely ruin.
