Everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day, so the saying goes. Many donn green attire, partake in corned beef and cabbage, drink green beer, then feel pretty green around the gills on March 18th!

I’m only a wee bit Irish, but I can tell you, I feel extremely lucky to call Missoula my home. Not just on St. Patrick’s Day, but 365 days of the year.

An Irish Blessing:

May brooks and trees and singing hills

Join in the chorus too,

And every gentle wind that blows

Send happiness to you.
