Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for anything Irish, and St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates everything having to do with Ireland.

So today, in celebration of St. Paddy’s Day, I’m giving away ebooks galore along with swag packs to honor the luck of the Irish. Please comment below telling me what’s your favorite thing about Ireland. Who knows, maybe the luck of the Irish will rub off on you!

Below are some images that are some of the things I love about Ireland, followed by a YouTube link to a rendition of “Danny Boy.”

The Martello Tower from James Joyce’s Ulysses


Sheep in the fields of Connemara

Me kissing the Blarney Stone

Me at St. Kevin’s Bed in Glendalough, 1999







And here’s the rendition of “Danny Boy” by Gentri. Love this song!

And a leprechaun for luck!

      It is gorgeous! What I noticed most the first time I went was how perfectly green the grass was. Our grass here has a lot of yellow mixed in with it, but the grass in Ireland looks a perfect Kelly green.

  3. I really want to visit Ireland. The thing that sticks out most in my mind is the Blarney stone. I think it is a fun legend. I am really interested in the historic places.

      That was one of the main things I did on my first trip to Ireland.Glad I did it when I was an undergrad in college as I’m now deathly afraid of heights. As you can see in the picture, it’s not for the fainthearted!
