  13. Is your maiden name really Mahoney? For some reason, I thought it was something German.

    I confess I do not, as a rule, drink alcohol, whether beer, wine, or liquor. But I LOVE Guinness because, like French Roast Coffee, it is dark, smooth, and rich. I’m only a slight contradiction (grin).

    Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos today. Here’s to a great St. Paddy’s Day to you too, dear friend.

  14. Ah; the wearin’ o’ the green! Happy St. Patty’s Day! 🙂 Love your photos! xo

  16. Oh my…love the photo collages. No green beer or corned beef and cabbage but we all sported a bit of green today. 🙂

  18. Oh my gosh the sunshine photo is BREATHTAKING! It all looks so quaint and perfect there.

  19. And a Happy St. Paddy’s Day to YOU dear Patty Mahoney Szymkowicz ❤
    Your photos of Ireland are wonderful and beautiful. I also carry Irish blood on my Dad's side, who arrived here in CA in 1852. Miners they were. Enjoy a yummy meal and perhaps some green beer?

  20. beautiful pics patty, happy st paddys day !!!

  21. Wonderful fotos dear Patty, they invite us to a lovely journey. I can understand that you will visit it again. Such a wonderful town with old houses and the green hills around. I wish I could visit it too, looks so magic. Thank you for sharing!
    Dear Greetings

    Top of the Morning to you! Looks like you were in fine Irish form Patty. Those colors of green from Ireland are something to see aren’t they – photos come close but to really see it is something else! Thanks for sharing and celebrating our Irish culture! Your countryside scene is stunning!

  23. Lovely. Visiting Ireland is definitely on my wish list.

    And the top if the morning to you – so good to see you’re celebrating your Irish roots too!!!
    I’m hoping to get to Ireland one day soon and see where my father came from.

  25. happy -belated- st patrick’s day 😀
    In my country we don’t celebrate this holiday, but it’s interesting to see how it’s celebrated in other countries. Your pictures are stunning, as always! 🙂 I think I had never seen so many shades of green before

  26. What fantastic photos Patty….I really enjoyed looking at them.
    Wow…that was some holiday, wasn’t it? 😉 xxx

  27. I’ve been to England twice and never managed to get to Ireland, a fact that I regret. I doubt that I will get back there, so I’m going to have to visit via your beautiful photos!

  28. Well, Patty Mahoney, I bet you really celebrated in style! You certainly shared the most wonderful photos I saw of all St. Paddy’s day! Ireland is on my bucket list. These photos make me all the more eager!

  29. you could make advertising for a travel agency… you would convince me within seconds i should go there! wonderful photos, even rain seems to be okay there.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts here...it means a lot to me and I appreciate your visit very much oxo
