Happy St. Paddy's Day to yee. I took the liberty of using google maps to have a look at the fair town of Balbriggan on the Irish Sea's coast. Erin is so green, even on google maps and your town looks like a lovely place. I love the names of the places too: "Hampton Demesne" for one. We don't get to hear words like demesne over here too often.
I'd guess that your Irish Sea can get whipped up into a bit of a tempest sometimes. At least you have beaches on the shoreline near you - the west coast of Ireland less so, n'est ce pas?
N. Y. City, where I am will be a pretty busy place tomorrow night. The corned beef is already cooked so we are pretty much ready. I may get a few Guiness but what they sell over here is a poor facsimile of the fresh keg Guiness I tasted in Dublin pubs about 18 years ago.
