Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh

A very Happy St Patrick's Day to all our Irish readers and all FC supporters of Irish descent.

The (end stanza of the) Lorica of Saint Patrick

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation

St. Patrick (ca. 377).

As the Irish move towards the referendum on the Lisbon Treaty (Constitution!), let us hope their love of freedom stirs them to vote against the Socialist monolith in Brussels, just as they did with the Nice Treaty.

All our freedoms may well be in their hands.

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!
