Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Sláinte from a nearly locked-down Ireland
Faery, avocados, limes and other green things are still available here in Ireland. So there should be no panic to buy toilet paper and guns back in the land of Colt and Kimberly Clark. We have no Guinness or rashers in the fridge but we have toast, Irish butter and Italian coffee (to support our neighbours there.) So if there’s no reason to leave the house, we’ll enjoy a quiet St. Patrick’s day from here at home in Ireland. We hope you do the same from wherever you are. Here’s to your health. Sláinte!
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
