St.Patrick’s Day

Yesterday the annual Manchester Irish Festival, St.Patrick’s Day Parade took place. Every year it seems to get bigger in both size and popularity. Alas, I did not attend as I went on a windswept walk-more on that later.

I just wanted to wish all of you Irish people out there, and all of the people with Irish roots (including the millions of people here in Britain, many ignorant to the fact) a Happy St.Patrick’s Day. In researching my family history, I have uncovered four different Irish branches on my own tree, up to now, so I will lift a Guinness today in acknowledgement of their struggle and to the contribution that they made to me just being here today.

Blood and roots.
