I have made well known my aversion to today’s celebration or at least as it is celebrated here in North America. However in honour of Ireland – and not the person (real or fictitious) who destroyed the old ways – I wanted to post my favourite “Irish” song. One that I’ve posted before but that I rejoice in every time I hear it. The harmonies in it are truly amazing and the song itself is a slightly melancholy but still joyous recollection of simple things.
Éire go Brách – Ireland until the end of Time
March 17 is Submarine Day – I’m not sure if it’s the sandwich or the boat!
