Ya sure you betcha I’m Irish

Haha!!

Wishing everyone a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! 

I can actually claim a bit o’Irishness:  A am one-half Norwegian (my mother is 100%), one-fourth German (my dad is one-half), and almost nearly one-fourth English (my dad again- but the almost nearly includes my one Irish GreatGreat Grandmother who was a Gillilan).

But anyway, who cares - on March 17 everyone is Irish!!

The one time a year that we recall our lineage! On my Mom’s side :  her great grandparents came over from Ireland.  Haven’t figured out her fathers side..

On my Dad’s side:  his grandparents are pure Irish and on his dad’s side… born in Switzerland near the German border (just received the naturalization papers in the mail for proof!)

50%German 25%Irish 25%English, or so I’m told.  My maiden name is Kerrigan (used to be O’Kerrigan) and my ancestors left Ireland when St. Patrick drove out the snakes, or so I’m told.
