The History Channel has a wonderful post today about Irish immigrants to America in the early 19th Century.


In 2009 THIS American went to Ireland and brought back this awesome tshirt! Practically new, because I only wear in one day a year. As a practicing Catholic, I believe those who have gone before us offer prayers and intercede on our behalf and today I ask St. Patrick, to pray for your health, happiness and peace.

I hope we all take the opportunity for more than corned beef and cabbage, but to celebrate and learn about the wonderful culture, traditions and history of Ireland, St Patrick’s adopted home, and its people.
