Happy St. Patrick’s Day to ye!

Oh the many ways you can spend this day…In honor of the day and Irish people, why not have a cuppa Barry’s Gold Label tea as you read some poetry that Ciaran Burns would love by William Butler Yeats; Seamus Heaney; Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill; or Patrick Kavanagh.
     Can’t make it to Pogue Mahone’s? Stop by for a virtual pint at the Guinness web site.
     Want a true taste of Ireland? (Note: It ain’t corned beef!) Visit the FoodIreland.com web site.
     Listen to some music by The Chieftains, Van Morrison, U2, Altan, Clannad, Enya, The Bothy Band, Sharon Shannon, Cherish The Ladies, Great Big Sea, or Sinéad O’Connor
     Learn to speak Irish through Daltaí na Gaeilge and pick up some Irish slang.
     Learn to dance a proper jig.
     Make your own Soda Bread.

In honor of the man whose life we celebrate this day, here is one of his prayers that Eileen Kenny loved dearly:

May you be blessed with the strength of heaven,
The light of the sun and the radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire, The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind, The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth, and the firmness of rock.

Sláinte!

The Cyber Miracles contains some phrases in Gaeilge, the Irish language. When one learns the Irish language, it comes with an expectation that you will share it with others to keep this beautiful old Celtic language alive.
     With that in mind, I’ve added a page devoted to the language, see the Gaeilge link above.
     Today I posted some proverbs, toasts and greetings that you can use during the coming St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Cleachtadh a dhéanann máistreacht (that is, practice makes perfect).

About the book

Maeve Kenny's life was going exactly as she'd planned. At 30 she was dating a soap opera star and had an exciting public relations career with an Irish-owned firm in Manhattan. Then three sudden events turned everything upside down, and Maeve found herself fleeing her Queens apartment for sanctuary back home upstate in Binghamton. As she tries to readjust to the dramatic changes in her life, Maeve says she needs a miracle to turn her life around. Who would have thought the whole world would be watching when it happens?
