Happy St. Patrick's Day!
My four Grandparent's were all born in Ireland and emigrated to the United States. I've visited Ireland many times and still have some relatives in Killarney, Dublin, Galway, and Cork.
Here is a photo of my paternal Grandfather's family, at the time they were the largest family of voters in Boston...of course women couldn't vote yet.
Though I'm still a bit weak I rallied long enough to make a loaf of Irish bread...I make it with loads of caraway seeds and raisins and slather it with lots of Irish butter. Good thing for my waistline I only bake it a few times a year!
If I'm feeling up to it we may go downtown and listen to some Irish music by the river. It is a warm and beautiful day here in the south!
So Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
