    For the great Gaels of IrelandAre the men that God made mad,For all their wars are merry,And all their songs are sad. The Ballad of the White Horse – Book II by G K Chesterton

    Today is March 1. I flipped over my calendar – it looks just the same with a few extra days tacked on.

    Jameson or Bushmills – that, and not Catholic or Protestant, decides what kind of Irishman you are.

    My brother-in-law owns a pub in Waterford. When he came to the States to marry my wife’s sister, I decided to take him out for a drink.

    I took him to a place called, Hennessey’s. The bar featured a large Irish flag and the St. Patrick’s day decorations were still up and there was Irish music playing. It was July.

    He told me, “This must be an Irish bar.” I asked him what gave him the clue. He pointed to the picture of John Kennedy and the Pope. That made it authentic.

    Does anyone know the names of Francis’s sidekicks, the nun and the brother? It seems rude to be restricted to Sr. X and Br. Y.

    In a very convoluted way, Br. Leo has made a point, of sorts, as has Sr. Gabby, particularly about Irish songs, i.e., many Irish songs have brought tears that themselves bring happiness.

    We Irish Catholics realize our tears are real responses to the sacrifices made by our forbears and that our ability to weep is part of our bittersweet posterity, the joy of our collective survival and the sadness for those whose demise enabled our survival.

    Bíonn gaotha an athraithe ag séideadh i gcónaíAgus gach uair a dhéanaim iarracht fanachtLeanann gaotha an athraithe ag séideadhAgus ní dhéanann siad ach mé a iompar ar shiúl

    I know many Irish songs, and many of them are merry.

    Meanwhile, at least in song, the Irish do not consider wars to be “merry”, neither their own nor someone else’s.

    One St.Pat’s Day, some one in the bar played Painted Black on the Juke Box, it fit right in.
