To everyone who doesn’t understand Irish well enough to translate the blessing from the previous post. While I grew up in England, my family has strong ties to Ireland and St Pat’s is my favourite holiday. I always enjoyed visiting Ireland as a child, and learning the language made me feel even more connected. The countryside is every bit as beautiful as the pictures in travel guides. The uplands are a dream, and the people I’ve met in the uplands are ever so nice. Dublin and the other urban areas are beautiful in their own right, and of course seeing the touristy areas is nice. Still, I’ll take a trip to rural Ireland any day.
Luck and love to everyone, today and always!
