Luck O' The Irish

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire.

~Irish Blessing

Here are a few of my favorite bits of Irish music. You cannot help but feel happy when you listen to these! One of my very favorite bands is The Pogues, and when they sing with the Dubliners- ooh! How can it get any better??

I am very proud of my Irish heritage, proud to be connected to this culture that is so strong and has persevered through so many hardships. Irish history is rich with stories and legends that I find SO amazing, I could sit for days on end devouring all of the wonderful tales and history.
So, today is the perfect day to hoist a Guinness high into the air and celebrate! Be thankful for what you have. Find the positive in a bad situation. Celebrate that bit of Irish warrior that is hidden deep in everyone, that part of you that gets you through any situation. Happy Paddy's Day!

I will leave you with quote from my Irish grandmother "If your going to kill each other, go outside. I don't want blood on the carpet!"

Irish music makes any day better!

I *love* the Pogues. First time I saw them was in 1986 on St Pat's day in London. What a night- what do I remember? Ending up with a dislocated shoulder in the ER. AH, them were the days :D
