Happy St Patrick’s Day! ~ Images of Ireland

St Patrick's Day Shamrock | City of Blackbirds Photography

Just a quick post to wish all of you a happy St Patrick’s Day!  This is a photo of my father on Patrick’s Day last year, sporting some fine Irish shamrock!  I love that today Ireland and Irishness will be embraced all over the world by people who feel a real connection to this country.  I don’t know of any other nation that is so internationally celebrated, it feels special to be Irish :)

I’ll leave you with some of my own favourite images of Ireland.  Enjoy your day wherever in the world you are and however you’re celebrating!

9 Sweet Notes on Happy St Patrick’s Day! ~ Images of Ireland

  1. Mary says:

    Erin Go Bragh Lovely dear Irish friend!
    Such a gorgeous collage, and your father is very stylish – the boutonnière is awesome!

    My husband’s paternal grandfather emigrated to Boston from Castleisland, County Kerry – around 1886 – so hubby is a proud and stalwart ‘Irishman’ in name (Sullivan – they dropped the O’ sadly) thought, and deed. He attended the big parade downtown yesterday, then joined friends at the Hibernian pub for green beer and lots of blarney I’m sure!

    Enjoy your St. Patrick;s Day……………and every day.
    I have a green post up for today!
    Hugs – Mary (in getting Spring green North Carolina)

    Oh, what a treat this is, Éad! I LOVE that image of your Father – classic! And your other images of beautiful Ireland – sigh! :)

    You’ll be happy to know we had an Irish celebration dinner last night with the family. :)

    Thinking of you with love,

    These are stunning! So much nicer than the messy, drunken ones that will be in the papers tomorrow. I love living in the city, but your pics are really making me itch for a little staycation to somewhere with lots of open space and gorgeous views. Happy St Patrick’s Day :)

    These are absolutely gorgeous photos! I celebrated by donning lots of green, letting my housemate draw a shamrock on my cheek and partying with my friends at a very Irish house-party (lots of jigging, green punch and green clothes!) Hope you had a lovely day celebrating. xxx
