Hey Bees 🙂
So with March quickly approaching I was just curious as to if any bees (besides myself!) are Irish and PROUD! I am so excited for my Birthday and St. Pattys 🙂 It has got to be alittle weird?!
I went to Hobby Lobby today (always means a huge over spending for me hehe) and I bought an GORGEOUS cross that says “God Bless You” with a shamrock and a cross.
I also got a gift from my FH that is a celtic cross and as weird as it is…it is one of my favorite house ornaments 🙂
I love my irish name (kinda scared to loose it!) and although I almost always regret the tattoo I got (at 18) of a shamrock and heart…I love it at the same time because it keep my heritage with me at all times.

Not me but my Fiance is! I am BIG into decorating and I will be honest, with me not being Irish I have never really decorated or celebrated St. Pattys day! But now I am and last year he was deployed for St.P day and this year he is home so I am all ready to do it out right!!! Yay!

Definitely got the Irish complexion…

I am half Irish (family all Mics from Boston) and half German. I am a natural blonde, but I dye my hair redish and can totally pull it off, I have my mother’s complexion (she is the Irish).
My grandfather dies over new years (no need to say you are sorry, he lead and awesome life and died relatively quickly at age 88), and the whole family went out to karaoke the day before the funeral mass and we sang old Irish drinking songs in his memory. If there is one good thing to say about our people, it is that we know how to drink up for a funeral (maybe that is two).

ha mine kinda has red headed too..(even though he likes to think it really isn’t… My sister calls him ginger) Matthew Thomas. We are having irish music at our cocktail hour. My cousin plays and sings and I think it will be a nice touch! Plus lots of drinking! Go Irish!

My fiance is beyond Irish. Thomas John O’Leary III… His entire family is irish. They even went to Ellis Island and looked through the old records and found where his great-grandfather came through there when he immigrated from Ireland. I’ve always coloured my hair red and secretly wished I was Irish. I’m glad I am marrying an Irish boy since thats the closest I can get

I am one of four red-headed Irish kids from Boston…. We love St. Paddy’s day, green beer (or any beer!), and soda bread 🙂

I’m half Irish, half Italian, and growing up, the Irish side seemed to dominate family traditions, since my grandparents moved here from Ireland. I took Irish dance lessons as a kid and was so excited to have Irish dancing at our wedding! We had a fiddler play some traditional tunes and a friend and I led the calls for the moves. We were amazed that the majority of our guests participated! It was so much fun, got everyone up doing something different from standard wedding dancing, and made for some really funny pictures 😉
Looking forward to St Paddy’s as always! I usually bake some scones or soda bread, and of course go out for a pint of Guinness 🙂

O’Brien here 🙂
We are renewing our vows, so I am already married 10 years and my married name is as Irish as my maiden name was,lol.
My engagement ring is a claddagh with a 2 carat heart diamond in the center, so we incorporated the claddagh on our invites, napkins, monogram (see top left!)
We are having a bagpiper lead us out of mass, and also have a squeeze box and fiddler playing during cocktails and dinner.
