The Gates_Ireland by Ann Marquette

With joy and gratitude I remember the Ireland I knew for over 12 years, and the friends I made there.  It has been way too long since I have been there for a visit.

I just read the post “If You’re Irish…” by MargeKatherine on her Inside Out Café blog
with views of Ireland and Irish songs, which brought tears to my eyes.

Check out her post and enjoy as we come to the closing of this St. Patrick’s Day 2012.

This day is extra special to me because I was blessed to have lived in Ireland for 12 years; and made some lovely friends.

And I have friends here who are of Irish decent. Each year at one of the March birthday celebrations the theme is St. Patrick’s Day, even though not actually on THE day. There is a sign draped across the fireplace mantle, shamrock plants on the tables and at least some of us wearing green. We have a great time…especially the birthday boys who are more interested in the gifts they are getting.

I don’t always have anything special planned for St. Patrick’s Day itself, but tomorrow I do.
No, I am not going to tell. I will tell about it at another time, so you will have to stay tuned.

In the meantime, I just heard this young man sing Danny Boy on Britain’s Got Talent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utfkGocmCiE&feature=related  His voice gave me goose bumps. Enjoy.
