Happy St Patrick's Day!

Sherkin Island, West Cork.

La fheile Padraig sona dhuit!
With an Irish husband and proudly half Irish children St. Patrick's Day is big in our house. Saturday was devoted to all things Irish; there was rugby on the T.V. (oh how you kept us guessing until the last minute Ireland and how wonderful to see the smile on Brian O'Driscoll's face), Guinness in the fridge and smoked salmon on soda bread. We had a gathering on Saturday evening and much drinking and talking was done. Yesterday was a slow day.
This year we are holidaying in Ireland - Mark wants to be home for his 50th birthday. I can't wait to get in our car and head west; it sings a siren's song to us.

  1. beautiful! More pictures like this when you make that holiday please!
    An Irish partner here too (hence Orla for me & Erin for you, I'm guessing). If I ever question, say, if it's bad to be drinking cocktails at 3pm on a Saturday (only occasionally, you understand!), he insists we're just 'being Irish'. They have their perks! x
