"Fáilte romhat"

"Fáilte romhat" means welcome in Irish!

Larry James

"Top o' the mornin' to you" is a greeting for St. Patrick's Day, March 17th. And the wearing of the green is traditional for this day, too. Happy St. Patrick's Day from Larry James!

There's more to St. Patrick's Day than parades, the color green and leprechauns. Here are a few websites that will help you get into the spirit of the holiday.

Possibly the only national holiday that is given recognition outside it's native land is St. Patrick's Day. This is a clear indication on the Irish influence thoughout the world. For instance in the United States, though not a national holiday, March 17th is recognised in many communities and cities. Everything from parades, to the "wearing of the green," to serving green beer (they really add green colouring to it) to some places going as far as dying rivers green, mark the holiday of Ireland's patron saint.

The biggest observance of all is, of course, in Ireland. Almost all businesses, with the exception of restaurants and pubs, close on the 17th of March. Being a religious holiday as well, many attend mass, where it is the traditional day for offering prayers for missionaries throughout the world, before the serious celebrating begins in earnest.

Marvelicious St. Patrick's Day Page - Here you will find legends, sayings, jokes, as well as information about hte patron saint of Ireland. DId you know that St. Patrick was born in Britain in the fourth century and was brought to the Emerald Isle as a prisoner by raiders who attacked his family's estate?

Born to Calpurnius and Conchessa, St. Patrick was later abducted by Druid raiders along with the servants from his family's farm in Britain and brought to Ireland to serve as a slave and tend sheep at the age of 16. He did this for six lonely years. He suffered from isolation, and he missed his family terribly. During this period of loneliness, Patrick found solace in God's love through prayer. At last, he managed to escape his slavery and return to his home in Britain. He became a monk and resolved to return to Ireland as a missionary when his studies at the schools of Tours and Lerins were through.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Larry James!

By the year 433, Patrick had become a respected bishop. He returned to Ireland and traveled throughout the land, spreading the news of Jesus Christ and teaching the Irish people about the one, true God. He had learned the Irish language during his years in slavery, so he was able to communicate with them well.

Twenty-five years later, Patrick died and left behind him a majority of Irish people who were baptized, thanks to his efforts. Since then, monasteries in Ireland have become centers of learning, and missionaries sent out from Ireland have played a large role in bringing Christianity back into Europe after many European cities had been destroyed by invading tribes.

St. Patrick is remembered well for using the shamrock to represent the Trinity during his teachings. He died on March 17, 461, in the monastery of Saul, in Down in Ulster.

Shamrock - Patricia Tunison Preston is widely recognized as "the Ireland expert." And rightly so! In the past 34 years, Pat has made hundreds of trips to Ireland and written more about travel to Ireland than any other American-born writer. Ask Pat a question about Ireland or check out her "Frequently Asked Questions" about traveling to Ireland.

Shamrock - Celebrate St. Patrick's day. Play Lepre Kong 2.

Here's an old Gaelic blessing:

May the roads rise to meet you.
May the wind be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
