BW11: St. Patrick's Day


Happy Sunday! St Patrick's Day is officially March 17th, however, we're going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day all week long.   My father's side of the family came from Cork county, Ireland which is known as the food capital of Ireland. Plus it's northwest of the  Blarney castle where my grandparents have kissed the blarney stone a few times.  We have a plaque in our home my grandmother gave us that says "Fluent Blarney spoken here."  

Instead of loading our wish lists down with more books, let's find a book on our shelves about Ireland, with Irish characters, or with green on the cover or in the title. 

St. Patrick’s Day


Jean Blewett

There’s an Isle, a green Isle, set in the sea,

     Here’s to the Saint that blessed it!

And here’s to the billows wild and free

     That for centuries have caressed it!

Here’s to the day when the men that roam

     Send longing eyes o’er the water!

Here’s to the land that still spells home

     To each loyal son and daughter!

Here’s to old Ireland—fair, I ween,

     With the blue skies stretched above her!

Here’s to her shamrock warm and green,

     And here’s to the hearts that love her!
