Since I am 4th generation Irish,  St. Patrick's Day was always a big deal in our house, so I long to visit this beautiful country some day. But for now, calling a Pub outside of Dublin will have to do.

Cooper and I decided to reach out to an authentic Irish Pub on the morning show today, and we were able to get a hold of a lovely woman named Sharon who happened to answer the phone at The James Griffin Pub  in the County of Meath about 30 minutes outside of Dublin. Now of course they celebrate St. Patrick's day as well, but the version here in the United States was brought over here by Irish Immigrants and has taken on a life of it's own since.

Sharon had told us that the bar was fairly empty at the moment but would be filling up around 3p (It was a little after 1p when we spoke to her) . I am sure she was none to happy to be bothered by some American D.J.'s but again she was really sweet and even asked us If we had started our celebrating.

The beauty of St. Patrick's Day at least here in the U.S. is that people from all over the country all want to be Irish or say they are Irish at least for the day. Wouldn't it be beautiful if all of us could want to come together on this level everyday and all be inclusive, that would truly be a thing to celebrate!
