Dia's Máire 'gus Páidhrag!

Well, Manchester does have a sizable Irish population even though it is
indeed home to the ACGS, though unfortunately, you'd be hardpressed to hear
Gaelic on the streets like you do French!!

Slán,

That's supposed to be French?? I've never heard the ditty, and don't know
any
of the words, but I believe it probably goes something like this:

C'est un p'tit bonhomme
Fidelum, fidelum,
Bon-bonne.
C'est un p'tit bonhomme
Tu es tout barbouillé,

That's Gaelic, and it means "A Happy Saint Patrick's Day, and Patrick's
blessings on you!"

I would have thought that the Gaelic greeting might have come from
Australia,
not from the see city of the ACGS. One never knows!

A Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you, as well, Mike. And to all, God Bless!
