I feel a deep affinity to Ireland. Even though at this point I’m less than a fraction Irish, Irish blood still runs strong in my veins. My mother always celebrated St. Patrick’s day in our house. We will do the same thing in my home today with an Irish-American feast, complete with my homemade Irish Soda Bread. It is my mother’s father’s side is Irish. When I was young I thought the picture of President John F. Kennedy was of a family member, at 5 I remember learning that he was not. At least not that they knew of but he was Irish Catholic & that meant they had arrived.
While they may have felt like they arrived here in the States. I dream of one day visiting Ireland. A visit to Ireland is something I’ve always wanted to do. My husband, who doesn’t believe he has an ounce of Irish heritage, also has always thought Ireland would be a beautiful place to visit. All that history & beauty, the culture & the people, it just calls to us.
In honor of this St. Patrick’s Day. I thought I’d share some photos via Discover Ireland of Ireland’s beauty.
Can’t you just hear the call of country side?
Is there anywhere in the world you want to visit?
