Searching through my blog posts, I found I haven’t talked about St Patrick’s Day on my blog since 2016 and 2018. Back in 2016, I dictated this post:
I remember the course I was doing online at the time of this post, and in later years, I studied Irish Gaelic via the same website (FutureLearn). I remember I enjoyed both courses and I found Irish Gaelic fascinating but hard to learn. There were people from all over the world studying the course, and I remember some letters of the alphabet being the same as, or very similar to, Spanish pronunciation.
I am proud that I decided to try the course, and I would do so again if it’s still available.
Finding my last St Patrick’s Day posts has made me think back to the trip to Dublin and makes me want to go again (obviously at a time when the world is safer). It was great visiting Trinity College, where my grandfather studied architecture, and visiting central areas of Dublin.
2018’s post was a book review, Luck of the Irish by J.A. Ferguson.
One of the things I do on St Patrick’s Day every year is wear green eyeshadow. Today, I’m wearing Bourjois Smokey Eyes Trio in Vert Jungle. We ate some green foods (a homemade guacamole sandwich and a pear).
I am proud to be half Irish and always look forward to St Patrick’s Day.
