Ireland Inspires on St Patrick’s Day

We’re not really alone on our little island boat! There mightn’t be 10s of millions of us on the island of Ireland, but we’ve made a big impact! Pic of the Graiguenamanagh St Patrick’s Day parade by GraigueBikeHire

Little island, big impact, much love.

Much of the world celebrates their links with Ireland on St Patrick’s Day, a day when it is said everyone is Irish 🙂

I certainly feel Irish after living here almost 20 years, and I totally understand the strong longing some non-Irish people have for Ireland- she snared my heart & soul, that’s for sure! And even though here in Ireland we often kinda cringe at some of the promotions of our well-meaning tourist board, (the ridiculously dramatic voice-over on the Wild Atlantic Way video, anyone?) the major consensus is that we all love the video below.

Part of it is to do with how we love James Vincent Mcmorrow ( if you get a chance do see him live!) and part of it is just how uplifting this video is. Yeah, Ireland has its problems, but we do love her– and what’s so amazing that many of you elsewhere in the world do, too. Celebrate & enjoy 🙂
