The only thing I plan on doing that's St. Patrick's Day-related is going to the Irish Mass that my church is having on Tuesday.

Here's the URL if you're interested: http://www.saint-fabian.org/bul.htm. Scroll down till you see "7th Annual St. Fabian's Irish Mass".

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

I hope everyone is getting geared up for the BIGGGGG DAY! I have my dining room all decked out for St. Patrick's Day and I can take some pictures this year, I have a digital camera, yeah!!!! All the family will be here... I haven't yet made out my menu.
What have you folks got planned...I know Mike is going to mass. Mike, have you ever been to Old St. Patrick's Church? There's alot of history that goes along with that church.
Madah is marching in a parade. Is your Irish wolf hounds marching with you? I hope you have good weather that day.

We got a beautiful thing St Paddy's Day in my neighborhood, been going on since after the World Trade disaster. The local Catholic church throws a big huge breakfast for the local Ladder Unit every March 17th -- right down the corner from where I live. The trucks come rolling in, out jump the firefighters, and they come out later full of pancakes and sporting green ribbons.

We're pretty partial to our firefighters here.

Every year I cook a huge meal and try to force a bit of Irish culture down my kids' throats smile.gif . For the most part, they enjoy it, but claim they can only take so much of bagpipes biggrin.gif (their taste is all in their mouth).

I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to cook yet except the "usual" Corned Beef, cabbage, colcannon or champ, soda bread, scones, and this dish with baby carrots and heavy cream -- I can't remember the name of it without looking at my recipe box. Anyhow, I'm always open to try new things, so if anyone has a great recipe, please share cool.gif . I'm having a girlfriend I work with over and I'm debating trying some Shillelagh, but when I made some last year it was nasty and potent and I keep thinking there must be a better recipe to it than the one I found. I may even be able to talk her into going to the local Dan McGuinness down the street for a little while walkman.gif . Anyway, there will be lots of music and a fine showing of John Wayne's The Quiet Man -- it's a tradition in my house to watch that one.

Oh Darby, I love the Quiet Man...I watched it last week for the umpteenth time!!! biggrin.gif Can you imagine being pulled, booted and drug by your clothes thru town and everyone in the town following and then your hubby giving you back to your brother...then after he gets the money and throws it in the furnace she's like an obedient servant and tells him his supper will be waitin' on him...they don't make women like that now a days!!! biggrin.gif I love Maureen O'Hara, what a Fiesty Irish woman she be....
dundee, how lovely that your going to a baby shower biggrin.gif you get to hear all those oohs and ahhs over all those pretty little baby things...by the way do you know if it is a lassie or a laddie? Maybe a snort from yur flask will help you to endure... biggrin.gif

BtW...has any of you folks gotten an email lately stating you had won the Irish Lottery? I did last weekend, I'm thinking it's probably some scam. I thought a person had to buy a ticket to win... biggrin.gif

Hey all!

I went to the Irish Mass at church last night. It was cool. Before the Mass started, the choral group sang some Irish songs like "That's An Irish Lullaby" and "Danny Boy". The best one though was the parish secretary singing "The Rose of Tralee".

The celebrant, Fr. Gene Smith, a first generation Irish-American (I think he said his dad was from Galway and his mom from Kilkenny), is an associate pastor at a parish, St. Barnabas, in my old neighborhood. After Mass, I spoke to him and told him that I'm originally from one of St. Barnabas' neighboring parishes, Christ the King. Before the Mass started, they asked all the people from St. Fabian (my present parish) to stand up. Then they asked the people from other parishes to do the same (the Irish Mass committee put the word out in several parishes and local newspapers-my parents said that there was even an announcement in their bulletin). Us St. Fabian people were outnumbered 3-1.

After the Mass, they had a little get-together in the parish hall. I went over for little bit and had some brownies with green food coloring and some soda bread. I just really went because I'd never been in the parish hall before. I've never had any reason to.

Maggie, I've never been in "Old St. Pat's" before. The only church down in the Loop I've ever been in is one that's run by the Augustinians called St. Peter's. That was because I worked downtown for a while a few years ago and it was convienient to go to a couple of holy day Masses there.

Looks like its gonna be a sad St paddy's for me. Low on funds this year. Will probably just sit at home listening to Celtic music and maybe watch The Secret of Roan Inish or Celtic Woman concert on DVD.

Never a bad St. Pat's when you can listen to Music, and watch some good Irish based movies. Will probably watch Darby O'Gill and the little people myself.

A merry day to all.

Dundee,

I was going to wait until Saturday and watch that movie with the new grandson, now I'll have to watch it tonight.


Also I have the quiet man aniversary edition so not only do I watch it often (yes, Red Heads rule) but I get to watch all the old media reels about it as well.


What movie did John Wayne and Maureen O'hara (and the rest of the Quiet Man cast) have to make before they were allowed to make the Quiet Man?

Ah, Barry Fitzgerald -- That reminds me, I can watch "Going My Way." The way movies are now, when you watch it it's hard to believe it swept the awards the year it came out, isn't it? But I cry every time when they bring in the old mother.

"The Wind That Shakes The Barley" is opening tomorrow in New York down in the Village -- I'm going to try to catch the first show at 11 in the morning. We're supposed to be getting a sleet and snowstorm, so maybe I'll have the theater to myself.

The parade Saturday will be cold and wet -- I always remember how sour the poor wolfhounds look about the whole thing when they have to march in the raw weather. You want to feed them a nice fat moggie to cheer them up. smile.gif
