I was born in Paddington in West London, and some would consider this to make me a little bit Irish anyway! I also did Irish Dancing with ringlets *shudders* However my mum and dad were from Northern Ireland, my Grandmother was french and Great Grandparents German. Bit of a liquorice allsort, and yes I'll admit I'm English, but I do also consider myself a genuine PLASTIC PADDY! Is it such a crime to celebrate St Patrick's Day with my mother! I don't like Guinness however, so block me!
This is a nice child-friendly site with the history of St Patrick, who died on 17th March 461 AD.
Am going off to find some nice recipes for dinner *does a slip jig* :)
