So first off, HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
As a teenager I developed a love for all things Irish. I think it was all Boyzone‘s fault!! Although to be fair I was completely fascinated by the fact that I’m 1/8 Irish – Taid’s Dad (so my great-grandad) was originally from Stepaside, Dublin.
Yes so as a teen I was very much into the Irish music scene. I loved all the Irish groups – Boyzone, B*Witched, Westlife & The Corrs (who are making a comeback!). I’ve been listening to these a lot recently and it just instantly takes me back to my teens. Ahh happy days!
My favourite tv show was Ballykissangel and I couldn’t wait until Sunday evenings so I could watch it. I used to watch it in the days of “Danny Byrne” aka Colin Farrell. Yup he started in the small screen you know!
And then thinking back I also loved the film “Waking Ned Devine” about an Irish village trying to claim the lotto winnings of a deceased resident – he dies as he finds out he’s won the jackpot! It’s a light hearted film and quite enjoyable. Surprisingly I believe it was filmed in the Isle of Man and not in Ireland. Must have been better tax breaks in IOM!
There wasn’t much point to this post other than to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and on that note I’ll leave you with this gem of a song by Sham Rock!
