Out of all the holidays it seems like St. Patrick's Day is the biggest celebration in my city. Funky.

You forgot to mention that song like McNamara's band, Irish eyes, Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, and Danny boy AREN'T IRISH!!! The first three were written in the U.S. the last in England.

Thanks for the article. My only complaint (being of Irish descent) is that people use St. Patrick's Day to reinforce the drunk Irish stereotype. And the Irish Americans go along with it. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, that image carries over to the rest of year. I'm fine with looking for leprechauns looking for pots of gold, though. :)
