Happy St Patrick's Day

St Patrick minding the Sheep on Slemish from the Burke monument
by Pearse (Patrick Pearse's father) and Sharp in Glasnevin cemetery.

If you search the internet for St Patrick's Day poetry you come up with some terrible shamrockery nonsense, little people, drink, green hats, leprechauns, inflatable shamrocks, red beards, a bit like the local St Patrick's Day parade in fact.

Listen to a get away from it all famous Irish poem instead, read here by the long dead author.

Shamroguery, more like! HSP to you as well, belatedly!
