Wearing of the Green
(Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) St Paul is a great city in which to celebrate this important date: parades and parties all over town. The best parade is the shortest.. . around the bar in O'Gara's Bar and Grill on Snelling and Selby Avenues, led by the Brian Boru Pipe Band at 3:30 pm. The 50th annual parade in downtown begins at noon. Many pubs and restaurants offer special fare on this important date. Shamrocks, Emmets, The Dubliner and The Liffey are just a few that will help you celebrate.
My DH, "Seamus," whose ancestors came over from County Mayo during the Potato Famine and our daughter, Kati Kilbane honour and celebrate their name sakes on this important family day.
You previously have met this wonderful lawn sculpture on many important holidays, the most recent was posted just prior to Valentine's Day. Next time I pass the house I think that I will ring the doorbell to meet and find out a little more about the owners.
