In 2012 34.1 million U.S. residents claimed Irish ancestry. This number was more than seven times the population of Ireland itself (4.6 million). Irish was the nation’s second most frequently reported ancestry, trailing only German.
There are 16 places in the United States that share the name Dublin, including nearby to me Dublin, California with a population of 47,156.

So keep watch over your gold coins
And your Irish Hooch
They can be quick little buggers
And Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Lucky me to be assigned the task of paying attention to the colors I love in the week that is all about Green.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day – I hope it is full of green goodness!
And may the luck of the Irish be with you!
