Ever wonder how St Patrick's Day is celebrated in Ireland? Ever wonder about the St Patrick's Day parade? Exactly what do we eat and drink on St Patrick's Day? Do you know who Peig Sayers was?
This book is a collection of St Patrick's day stories and dishes from my youth growing up in Waterford then throughout my corporate career overseas and now that I have actually returned home to Ireland.
This book will be of interest to those who did not grow up in Ireland and either funny for those people who did!
This book is definitely best enjoyed with a pint of Guinness in one hand and a piece of soda bread in the other! Slainte!
