So we’re obviously not at the pub with friends while our communities are ravaged by COVID-19 … pity really as it’s a huge day for my family and friends (the visiting and music more than the pints), and several friends own and operate Irish pubs and restaurants in the DC / MD / VA region. Still, we can enjoy a bit of Celtic craic (fun, having a laugh) without getting together.
I can skip the pints easily enough but food and music are must-haves. So my son Brendan and I made some Irish soda bread this afternoon – it’s in the oven and baking now and should be ready when my Irish hubby gets home from work. A small surprise after a crazy day at work.
I’ve also got some music bookmarked – AcuRadio has some great music channels set aside for the occasion and my favorite has always been their traditional channel. Give a listen and if it’s not to your liking, there also a channel more suited to the Kiss Me I’m Irish or the Unicorn Song crowd on Radio Celt.
May the wind always be at your back, and may the road rise up to meet you. Stay safe, everyone!
