Top of the morning to yer. This year I spent St Patrick’s Day dressed as a bright green and gold leprechaun with a mad bunch of Irish drunks quaffing Guinness at Randwick Racecourse. Oh what fun we had even though I was completely sober. My great grandmother Frances O’Shea was from Limerick so I figure it’s in the blood. Of course it was an Englishman, Edward Lear who made limericks popular in the modern world. To be sure. This is my favourite Irish band.
