GUEST,Antaine BS: Being Irish on St. Patrick's Day (137* d) RE: BS: Being Irish on St. Patrick's Day 17 Mar 06


"Next, how do you know St Patrick wasn't an Anglo?"

because the only 'anglos' were the Angles, who were still living along the German/Danish border at the time. It wasn't until they mingled with the Saxons (and were subsequently invaded by the Normans) that anything suitable to be called 'English' had emerged as a culture. When dealing with an island that has changed hands culturally, simply using the current name is horribly inaccurate.

As for Lent, most bishops (as have been noted) give dispensation. Simply replace your meatless Friday with another one during the week or do another form of penance in its stead.

And lastly, is fearr Gaeilge bhriste ná Béarla cliste, cinnte. Is an fuil croí teangacha cainteoirí nua. 'S ea, mhaise, tá "Gaelic" (eg Gaeilge na hAlban) ag fáil bás, ach ní bhéidh Gaeilge na hÉireann marbh am ar bith gan mhoill...

Beannachtaí Lá Fhéile Phádraig daoibh, a chairde...
