I'm not really much into festivities such as these. But thanks for the thought, anyway! :-)

I'm not Irish but know we have people from there though my wishes were late if you go by Forum time.
There is a school of thought that a young St Patrick was picked up from the banks of the Severn and transported to Ireland as a slave, so it could be claimed he was from Gloucestershire. St George was from what is now modern day Turkey

Thank you for the historical stuff. This is much more interesting than the festivities! Does that make me a sad nerd? :P

Not at all in my book! St Patricks Day has been commercialised like a lot of other tings to be sure so it has. Fer Fecks sake! Or in Vorest of Dean' Glos vernacular: It chunt right mind!
