I am not Irish .... as far as I know (as of 12 noon, my cousin informed me our grandmother was half Irish) ....but I love Ireland.  It's a beautiful country and the people of Ireland are as lovely and bonny as it's green, lush countryside.  My suggestion to you, is make a hot cup of Irish coffee (recipe below) and plop yourself in front of the big screen and watch "The Quiet Man" with John Wayne and Maureen O' Hara.

Irish coffee is the perfect finale to a St. Patrick's Day feast.
