Why Did That Leprechaun Make Off With My Gold?

Beannacht Lá Fhéile Pádraig!

That's Happy St. Patrick's Day, in Gaelic.

First, off, there's this song, often heard this time of year, but very well done by Sean McCann of the band Great Big Sea. If you ever get a chance, go see them in concert.

And second, there's this song, by the band Ennis that I've always loved. Both songs are entirely appropriate today.

Now that I've got the nice stuff out of the way, the rest of the blog is going to get me into a lot of trouble with Father O'Malley, Sister Molly, Bono, Liam Neeson, Sinn Fein, the IRA....

I'm so dead for this one...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!


  1. Wait...I have to stop laughing....

    You'd better forget about ever going to Ireland. You'd never get out alive. It would be the first time the Catholics and the Protestants joined forces....

  2. I definitely will scratch Ireland out as far as men are concerned.

  3. That was too funy. I loved the one with Bono and I sooo loved the pictures. I could so live in Ireland.

  4. I have sent the card with St. Patrick and the snakes, it still makes me laugh !
    Great post today, Thanks for the laugh...

    cheers, parsnip

  5. Ah, see, I told you that you did it better!!! Great blog!

  6. Too good! Loved it. I loved St. Patrick driving the snakes and Yoda.
    Made me laugh. TY

  7. Love the doxies- Cute pictures. Happy St. Patty's to you! I saw a leprechaun today that made me write some weird stuff-no, it wasn't green beer, I swear!

  8. Too funny! Next time you go to Ireland they're going to hold a feckin Irish wake for you!

    Happy St. Paddy's Day!

  9. Love, love, love Meanwhile in Ireland.

  10. Hee! I was enjoying the beautiful photos, then suddenly -- bam!

  11. LOL! Loved it! Hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day:).
