St. Patrick's Day SewingMy Connection to St Patrick

I mentioned last year my husband's family was originally from Ireland which is why St. Patrick's Day is always a fun holiday for us.  His family hails from the once-pirate-infested wild west coast of Ireland.  If you want to read an interesting history of that region, check out this article:  When pirates ruled: Ireland's wild Atlantic coast

A few years ago, we were lucky enough to go and visit their ancestral home in Westport, County Mayo, on the beautiful west coast of Ireland.  We had a wonderful time there and Ireland should definitely be on your list of places to visit, especially if you can trace any ancestors there.  Westport is situated on Clew Bay where Grace O'Malley, the pirate queen in the linked article was born in 1530.

    Oh thank you for such great ideas for St Patrick’s Day. It was my birthday so I’m always looking for something to use to celebrate. Some of my ancestors came from Macroom, Co Cork. Getting my DNA done but I don’t expect any surprises. Mother’s family from Ireland and father’s family from England. No big deal there. I’m going to start making some of these things for next year and I’ll be ready before the day. Thank you again.
