'DIA SHÁBHÁIL IRELAND' Most emerald land Of passion and poetry; Born in Celtic mists. Saint Patricius A Brit enslaved by pirates Made this land his home. Banisher of snakes; Noble, kind, compassionate; The best of Irish. Let's celebrate him With a quick raise of the glass; Warm, tasty whiskey. See you in Dublin! But until that most sweet time? See you in the pub.
