j Padraig moore;

Maybe if glaswegian read "An Unstoppable Force" by Lucille H. Campey, he would begin to understand why we Scots in Canada feel the way we do about our ancestors and our Scottish Heritage. If he ever comes to Canada I recommend that he stay away from "Cape Breton"



Camac.

Before I visitied canada I was warned from my friends and family about all the plastic scots in nova scotia and cape breton. My friends were intensly irritated by them and so were my work collegues.

I am nnot talking about those who are interested in their ancestors I am talking about those that actually think thery are scottish through and through. We scots do not consider them scottish. I know this because I am from scotland. Its a bit of a joke here in scotland.

Glaswegian is such a sad little man. Stop replying to his hate comments
and he will go away. You can't fight with yourself.

If you cant take it dont answer to my posts or read them and please refrain from your bitter little insults.

I am not a troll.

Donajhi, I saw the tartan tat you are wearing on your profile. You are the people my scottish brethern warned me about. I bet you have your laminated clan membership badge and you go to meetings drawling in your thick canadian/yank accent about yopur titles and land that you own in scotland.

I've been reading the posts here and I must say it has gotten quite off topic. As it stands however, I can see where glaswegian stands, it is one side or the other you can not straddle on the fence with being Irish-American, Scottish-Canadian, Welsh-Eskimo etc. you must pick one not both. Now I think we can all agree he could have gotten his point across slightly less rudely (nothing personal glaswegian but let's be honest) but that's no reason to attack his argument.
The kilt did originate in Ireland and the emigrants from there that drove out the Picts brought it to Scotland, but it seems that the kilt died out in Ireland at some point and was retained by the Scots, and thus we have a Scottish Tartan now and there is no longer such a thing as an Irish kilt anymore (there used to be however).

There was no kilt in ireland, the irish wore a liene which was a long shirt type garment. There is no evidence the scottish kilt (which was developed in the 16th century, in the scots highlands) was developed from the leine. this is a very common misconception.

Glaswegian,
At 5 and 20 you are but a wee babe.
Get back on the porch, you are to young to run with the big dogs.
Good-bye
Have a nice life

Too much attention has been diverted towards something completely different than the topic....I think it would be best to stick to the original topic folks which is St-Patrick's Day 2009.

Thanks,

Righto! And to restart on the real topic, I don't think I'm actually doing anything on the big day itself, but on the 10th I'm going to a Celtic Woman concert, on the 14th I'm probably going to a mini-festival at the Irish Culture Center in Canton, and on the 15th we're having a special St. Patrick's Day Church service.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Good Grief!!! I only wanted to know how everyone was going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! I didn't want to stir up a hornets nest. I'm glad most of us here are mature adults and it doesn't matter what we wear as long as we wear it proud and with dignity. I am proud of my Irish HERITAGE, ROOTS, ANCESTORS... I suppose since the first St. Patrick's Day originated here in America we should be very proud!!!

So as a mature adult I want to wish everyone the best St. Patrick's Day ever!!!!

How about a few toasts to go along with this wonderful holiday.

Slainte beer_mug.gif

May your fire be as warm as the weather is cold.

Health, and long life to you
Land without rent to you
The partner of your heart to you
and when you die, may your bones rest in Ireland!

As you slide down the banisters of life may the splinters never point the wrong way.

May you get all your wishes but one,
So you always have something to strive for.

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Here's to your coffin...
May it be built of 100 year old oaks which I will plant tomorrow.

May your neighbors respect you,
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you.

May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.

An old Irish recipe for longevity:
Leave the table hungry.
Leave the bed sleepy.
Leave the bar thirsty.

May you live to be a hundred years, with one extra year to repent.

May you never forget what is worth remembering,
Or remember what is best forgotten.

May you be in heaven one half hour before the devil knows you're dead.

May you have the hindsight to know where you've been,
The insight to know where you are,
and the foresight to know when you've gone too far.

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.

May God bring good health to your enemies enemies

May you never make an enemy
When you could make a friend–
Unless you meet a fox among your chickens.

rocks that ShruleAEgan sent me. Anything that screams Ireland I put it out!!!!

biggrin.gif Thanks Patty. Makes me smile knowing you appreciate them.


I'll be down at the B&B property on St. Patty's Day, camping for 12 days. I have my bottle of Tullamore Dew and I'll be heading to the grocery store to pick up a case of Highlander Brewery Gaelic Ale. I already put in my order with Food of Ireland and we will have a traditional Irish breakfast that morning, while we sit and overlook the scenery of the property. beer_mug.gif thumbs_up.gif

Pencil it in on the calendar for next year and you can hang with us. Only difference will be, we will be in the house by then, not camping in the shed. laugh.gif
