"Top O' da mornen to ya"


If there are any fellow Irishmen out there I bid you a splendid day for you and yours.

This is my favorite holiday to be with others(and not necessarily in a pub drinking untill I can't remember my name).

I will be heading to downtown Cleveland for the 137th annual St. Patrick's day parade, and yes they celebrate it on the 17th not on a convenient weekend before!

The Cleveland parade is one of top showings in the country. It is REALLY a great thing to see all the Irish influence and pride come out and celebrate. There are more than 180 units participating such as Irish American clubs, Irish Firefighter & Police clubs to little adorable Irish step dancers to a huge group of Irish Wolfhounds to Bagpipers and drum corps.

Last year there were more than 350,000 people there to watch the parade & celebrate!


Well..... have a great day and BE CAREFUL!

to all our Irish brothers and sisters today. May the sun shine warmly on your face and the rain fall gently on your shoulders and the wind be always at your back ... etc... and may the devil not know you have passed away until AFTER you have passed thru the pearly gates. :D

I am of the Doyle clan, who trace their lineage back to around 800-900AD in Ireland. One of the largest clans... albeit originating from marauders and pilferers, but ah well.


Happy St. Patrick's day to my Irish brethren.

Another Doyle here from County Cork way back when...

And yes, here in Buffalo we had our parade on Sunday, it's a better day to celebrate (not to mention that we got a foot of snow yesterday)

A few Irish jokes...


Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he'd
just been run over by a train. His arm is in a sling, his nose is
broken, his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp.
"What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender.
"Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy.
"That little **** , O'Conner," says Sean, "He couldn't
do that to you, he must have had something in his hand."
"That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had,
and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it."
"Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself,
didn't you have something in your hand?"
"That I did," said Paddy. "Mrs. O'Conner's breast, and
a thing of beauty it was, but useless in a fight."
===============================================
An Irishman who had a little too much to drink is
driving home from the city one night and, of course, his car is weaving
violently all over the road.
A cop pulls him over. "So," says the cop to the driver,
where have ya been?"
"Why, I've been to the pub of course," slurs the drunk.
"Well," says the cop, "it looks like you've had quite a
few to drink this evening."
"I did all right," the drunk says with a smile.
"Did you know," says the cop, standing straight and
folding his arms across his chest, "that a few intersections back, your
wife fell out of your car?"
"Oh, thank heavens," sighs the drunk. "For a minute
there, I thought I'd gone deaf."
=========================================
Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner, as usual, when
Tim Finnegan arrives at her door.
"Brenda, may I come in?" he asks.
"I've somethin'to tell ya."
"Of course you can come in, you're always welcome, Tim.
But where's my husband?"
"That's what I'm here to be tellin' ya, Brenda.
"There was an accident down at the Guinness brewery..."
"Oh, God no!" cries Brenda. "Please don't tell me.."
"I must, Brenda. Your husband Shamus is dead and gone. I'm sorry."
Finally, she looked up at Tim. "How did it happen, Tim?"
"It was terrible, Brenda. He fell into a vat of Guinness
Stout and drowned."
"Oh my dear Jesus! But you must tell me true, Tim. "Did
he at least go quickly?"
"Well, no Brenda... no. Fact is, he got out three times to pee."
=========================================
Mary Clancy goes up to Father O'Grady after his Sunday
morning service, and she's in tears.
He says, "So what's bothering you, Mary my dear?"
She says, "Oh, Father, I've got terrible news. My
husband passed away last night."
The priest says, "Oh, Mary, that's terrible. Tell me,
Mary, did he have any last requests?"
She says, "That he did, Father..
" The priest says, "What did he ask, Mary?
" She says, "He said, 'Please Mary, put down that damn
gun...'
===========================================
AND THE BEST FOR LAST.
A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a
confessional booth, sits down but says nothing.
The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but
the drunk just sits there.
Finaly, the Priest pounds three times on the wall.
The drunk mumbles, "ain't no use knockin, there's no
paper on this side either.

TRUE STORY! Jim Sullivan (Sully), a devout democrat, awoke one morning to find someone had stolen his concrete donkey from his front yard. In a tither, Sully called the local police. Since he was well known in the community, he spoke directly to the Chief of Police. The chief asked what had him upset and Sully replied "Chief, I've lost my ***". The donkey was later found and returned.
