A Saint Patrick's Day message from Ireland: Thank you, America
I'd like to hope that Ireland can be an exception to the rule of European cynicism and ingratitude toward our close friend, the United States. So, as an ordinary Irishman, today I'd like to say this to the ethereal but very real thing that is America:
Happy St Patrick's Day and, above all, thank you.
