St. Patrick's Day in Clark County, WA - Wear your Green proudly!

Irish AncestorsThere are an estimated 55,600 residents in Clark County, WA who have ancestors from Ireland ( cheers to my Grandpa Laney).  That’s a bit higher than the nearly 54,300 who claim English ancestors, according to a recent United Census Bureau survey.

Lots of place to celebrate with everyone. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves at an Irish Pub, but 3,000 miles awat, in Marshfield Ma. It was impossible not to get caught up with all the festivities.

This is one day that you don't  have to be Irish to wear green, to be lucky or to eat corned beef and cabbage.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My husband just took  my parents for a lunch out of Corned Beef and Cabbage ( not a meat eater, so I stayed home). But yes, we're all Irish today Margaret!

Debb-I think everyone seems to reach down and pull out a wee-bit of Irish in themselves on St. Patrick's Day. Hope you had time to enjoy some of the festivities in Clark County? Best.

Debb,

Not only do you come from good ancestry, you come from a family who continuously gives joy, hope, and peace to the world by the military sacrifices to promote peace and freedom.

I thank God for the Irish people and luckily today, we can ALL be Irish.
