Here on Thurles.Info we would like to wish all our readers, both at home and abroad, a very happy St. Patrick’s Day in 2017.
Our very good friends Patrick and his wife Regina Hayes who reside in Fremont, California, attended the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in San Francisco; held on last Saturday. (Quite early, but as Patrick says “California is always miles ahead of any crowd.”)
Patrick, who successfully traced his ancestors back to Loughmore, Thurles, Co. Tipperary some years ago, now visits Tipperary on a regular basis with other family members. Today he sent us some photo’s (shown in short slide show above) of last Saturday’s parade. He described the day as being “full of activity with lots of green on a glorious spring day”.
Patrick and Regina and their family would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone living in Loughmore and Thurles a very enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day.
From us to you Patrick, and your family, go an old Irish Blessing, “May you always have…Walls for the winds; A roof for the rain; Tea beside the fire; Laughter to cheer you; Those you love near you, and All your heart might desire.”
