Happy Paddy's Day to all our Irish brethren and sisters.

Pity Covid-19 will restrict the celebrations!
 
Must be a bit of a damp squib in Ireland they've shut all the pubs

Now that's a fate worse than running out of bog roll

We celebrated early in Vienna this past weekend, before everything shut down. This was taken at the Hard Rock Cafe - it closed its doors on Sunday night for a minimum of 4 weeks.

Mother was a Mick (actually, an Anne), so I take an interest or seven at this time of year. Have previously played the Irish (FAI) team off to World Cup and done the Westminster Parade.

Always a little peeved that St Patrick is represented by a State flag rather than his own - London Irish Pipes excepted IIRC.

Happy St Paddy's day to you too, however you choose to celebrate it, or not.

I was somewhat bemused when a friend of my generation pointed out the irony of all the pubs in Northern Ireland closing for health and safety reasons over Covid-19. It seemed eminently sensible to me so I asked him why he thought it odd.

"You remember the 1970s and later the 1990s, you recall the rather serious health and safety implications of going for a pint back in those days. Did you ever hear tell of a pub closing even once? Do you ever remember any of us choosing not to go out for a beer because it was too risky?"

He had a point I suppose.
 
Copping a bullet didn't mean your family copping one a week later.

I was wondering when a shit-dribbler like you would show up to chop in a stupid remark just to enhance your "street-cred" with other ARRSErs. Now all the rest of the shit-dribblers will follow suit, just like the mongs always do, and spoil the thread for other ARRSErs.

And it's obvious that a sprog like you doesn't know what he's talking (or writing) about. There was no "family" involved. But you wouldn't know that now, would you, sonny?

Anyway, a good day all around wished to each (with obvious exceptions) in the name of the hallowed St Patrick.

I'm 1/32 Irish (no distinction. It was all one Ireland when a pair of my several x grandparents left Coynty Doyn for the high tech bleeding edge of the Industrial Revolution in the Durham Coalfield a couple of hundred years ago).

If I were a drinking man, I'd have a wee tipple tonight to be sure.

But I'm not, so l shan't.
 
Apparantly leprechauns and people in green hats with American accents are at high risk from the corona virus. They should stay indoors and keep quiet.

Breaking news: This now also applies to plastic paddys in Nottingham.
 
I'll be celebrating with my hound tonight.
It's his birthday.

Pardon my ignorance, but WTF is that you are drinking?
It’s a Paddy’s Day themed Pilsner. Seen it done before in the UK - not sure what they put in it, but it tastes fine.
 
How old is the hound ? Is your avatar due an upgrade with a new picture of the birthday dog?
He's 2 today.

Might upgrade the avatar on Friday after his haircut.

Here's one of him charming the knickers of one of the junior Engineer's in work.
