Prayer of an Irishman

Thanks to James Hoag, one of my maternal great-grandfathers, yours truly is 12.5 percent Irish.

It is therefore with the pride of an Irishman that I pray you have a very blessed St. Patrick's Day!

For the Old Irish Blessing, please see my St. Patrick's Day posts in 2007 and 2008.

If you desire to skip the green beer today, be sure to read Mike's Busted Halo piece called "Five Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Without Getting a Hangover."

And ... a bit o' speculation ... could Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney be the next U.S. ambassador to Ireland?
