So this will be the second time that we have St.Patrick's day in lockdown. Such a downer, but it is not the black death or a bigger epidemic.
Before I start I will ask you to get a book called Wherever green is worn by Tim Pat Coogan. It is quite a big book but I think you can get it on your Kindle. The Irish dysphoria spans to globe form Che Gavaras Irish mother being Irish.
The founder of the Argentinian navy, again Irish.
I was fortunate to drive a taxi meeting the wise and the foolish, the rich and the poor. One day I picked up 2 girls from Canada and it turned out that they were Escamos (They were Inuit escamo means snow eater)Well they had come to Ireland because they had met so many Irish people. What did they think of the place?
It is so so beautiful and the people are so friendly we cannot understand why people ever leave it.
So I said that we had bad neighbors and in and around 1830 we had a famine and this started a mass exodus which continued right until the 1980s.
When you go leave your home you have an ache in your heart to return, but this is the one day that gives you the opportunity to re-connect.
Still things will get better,I feel it in me waters as the Moore St dealer would say.
By the way St,Patrick was a slave taken from Wales !
So I wish you all good health and that next year we might hopefully have the NYPD leading the big parade.
I hope to see you all there.
Pope John Paul in a moment of foolishness decided to Un-saint Patrick, but the nuns who worked in the Vatican let him know that there would be no dinner until he changed his mind and reversed that mad idea.
