The Feast of Saint Patrick

May the blessings of light be upon you,
Light without and light within
And in all your comings and goings.
~~Irish blessing

St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland,
  St. Benin's Church, Ireland. He uses the 3-leaf shamrock
 to illustrate the Holy Trinity.

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel so nothing can harm you.
~~Irish blessing

 Everyone in town is down at T. J. Carney's Pub & Grille
where Ken McBride Himself entertains with Irish ballads,
green beer flows, and rustic soda bread turns up on tables.

Have a happy St. Pat's!

Nice pictures you show. I have a little St. .. Patrick figure with a lucky coin that I bought in Ireland many years ago (1996) Wish you a good Sunday :) Hugs Hanne Bente

I'm a bit late but I hope your St. Patty Day was great! I made Irish soda bread on Sunday but gave it away today. I made cabbage but no corned beef since I'm the only one who likes it. But what I really craved was a Rueben..yum, my fav sandwich!
