It’s time to celebrate Irishness

Stylish idea for our national holiday from The Irish Cultural Centre, London


Lovely celtic design artwork from San Diego


This was Listowel on St. Patrick’s day sometime in the nineties. The years have seen many changes, not least a one way traffic system.  I hope to bring you some news of this year’s parade next week.


Lest we ever forget

This powerful reminder of the horrors of war comes from inside a gas chamber at Auchwitz

Violet Puttock sent this photo to The Advertiser some time ago . I thought some people might have missed it or might like to see it again.


Enjoy the St. Patrick’s weekend. See you next week
