Luck O' the Irish!

Ah... Ireland. I spent a semester abroad there a few years ago and loved it- the constant green (even in winter), the rain, the accents, the scenery. The scenery is the most amazing part- on that tiny island there are many 100 non-photogenic spots {mostly in the cities, and I'm sure a good photographer could work them up to look good}. These are just from my boring old point and shoot {this was well before I found out that a DSLR wasn't a computer component}, but I hope you enjoy!

Oh, and BTW- St. Patrick's Day enjoys a much greater acclaim here in the USA than it does in Ireland. Most of the people I knew over there didn't understand what all the fuss was about St. Patty's, but oh well- we've made it our own and every year it makes me want to follow the rainbow to the land of green {and beer... and whiskey... hehe}. 

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.  - Adrienne Cook

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I love your Irish post. I visited Northern Ireland when I was 14 and loved it. I long to go back again.
