Okay. I admit it. I do like St. Paddy’s Day. Just a bit of a reminder who this superhero of the Irish is. He’s the fellow that ran the snakes out of Ireland. He’s the fellow who made Catholics out of the Celts. Before St. Patrick, the Celts would do anything for a bar fight. Their greatest hero’s greatest deed was to defend Ulster from a queen who wanted to steal a cow. His name was Cú Chulainn. And in those days, cow stealing was a no-no.
St. Patrick’s Day,
leprechauns, shamrocks, Seamus Heaney;
words to delight the tongue.
