Eire: Land of Saints and Scholars

In case it slipped your mind, today, March 17th, is the Feast of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland and the man who, legend has it, rid the Emerald Isle of snakes.

All across Eire, and in any other country where fine Guinness is drawn, it’s Paddy’s Day, the diminutive for Pádraig (Patrick).

Paddy’s Day has a special meaning for me as I’m half Irish, with roots on both sides of my family tree hailing from Counties Sligo and Wexford. Over the past couple of years, I’ve paid numerous visits to the “old country” to see for myself.

If you’ve never been to the “land of saints and scholars,” what are you waiting for?

Happy Paddy’s Day to you!
