Don't you just hate it when websites change their front page to depict some nauseating green/clover/leprechaun/shillelagh logo on 17th March each year?
Delighted to see that this website has not succumbed and is proudly displaying its own.

Ahhh, Oireland...the old country...my great-great-great aunt was Irish etc etc


I am one of the few people who has no Irish/Scottish/Welsh ancestry and feel deprived when it's Burn's Night or St Patrick's Day. I think the best solution is to drink Harvey's on St George's Day.

There is a St Patricks Day parade in Tokyo!!!! Says it all! In America the vast majority taking part have no Irish connection at all.
Very clever marketing and exporting, but who wants to be a plastic paddy?
Its just an excuse to get pissed, they might as well call it that "excuse to get pissed day!" Let them have their day! Nothing comes near to Lewes on the 5th!! How did the Irish man die drinking a pint of milk? The cow fell on him! Ive heard it all now, OBama claims to be of Irish descent! Were Brits - no one likes us we dont care!!!

Yeah, I somehow imagine that the pandemic has not been much of a great "leveler" for those poorest in our society. :( more
