I Want Your St Patrick's Day Photos!
Every year, I try to do some big Paddy's Day promotions. I've come to realize I don't have enough pictures to use for my promotions. I'm always Working on St Patrick's Day. I don't have time to take pictures.
So I'd like your pictures. Keep in mind they need to be high-quality photos. If there are any obvious faces in the pictures, I also need to make sure you have permission from those photographed.
The pictures should capture the feeling of the day. Fun. Just email them right here. Use the subject "My St Patrick's Day Pictures".
Thanks! I can't wait to see your photos.
A True Taste of Galway...
The key to great cuisine in Galway is its freshness. Just ask Gosia Letowska. “I had a girl one time tell me that when she told her mother she was coming to Ireland, her mother gave her a plate of salt and said to take it with her because everything in Ireland was overcooked and under salted. And she said we have now changed her mind.” Listen to Erin's Isle.
Music from Paddy Glackin, Colum Sands, Gerry O'Connor, The Outside Track, Tommy Peoples, Caladh Nua, Paddy Keenan and more! Listen to Copperplate Podcast.
This is one of the favorite songs performed by the Brobdingnagian Bards. It's a fun video. Watch it.
The Best Celtic Punk & Rock Albums of 2018...
Another year has come and gone. On a personal note it had some highs and some lows but musically it was all aces! Doing the Best of List is my least favorite activity of the year. Listen to The Grinning Beggar's Paddy Rock Podcast.
