Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
,

We wish all of our visitors and members a Happy St.Patrick’s Day! 

For all of you at home, whether that’s in Ireland or elsewhere, we’d like to share a few archival items with you to mark the day: 

Since there’s no parade this year, here’s something to lift the spirits – an image taken at a St.Patrick’s Day parade in the late 1940s / early 1950s.
Photographed is Pat & Jim Brophy (Pipes), Tom Brophy (Accordion), Jim Seery (Fiddle), Betty Nevin (Dancer) outside the GPO, Dublin.
Thanks to Brendan Collins for sharing this photo with us!

 

 

If you’re stuck at home this St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a Notes & Narratives with Críostóir Mac Cárthaigh from March 2012 that may be of interest. Watch “The Stories, Songs, Music and Dance of St. Patrick” on our online archive 🎶👉https://bit.ly/2U8vXs9

Notes&Narratives is a monthly lecture/performance series which is streamed live on NPUTV & later added to www.pipers.ie/source
