Celebrating St. Patricks' Day - Ireland 1979

Many years ago now (read 1979!) I was in Ireland for six months as part of an Overseas Study trip with Lewis and Clark College.
Here are some of my photos from a time before computers and cell phones and digital photography.

Very timely post with lovely photos. You certainly are good with your bird and nature photos too- I can barely take a decent photo of my stitching let alone anything else! Happy St Paddy's day!
