Today’s Irish URL

Mobile, Alabama isn’t often in the news, nor is it often connected with the Irish. However, some people there seem to think that they have been blessed with an Irish visitor. This is a YouTube video, in case anyone is a bit short on bandwidth.

I then Googled for some newspaper reports so that I could offer that as an alternative. However, there are precious few, and I had to look through about 20 Google entries before I came up with this link to a non-video recounting of the tale. If it weren’t before April 1st, I’d suspect an April Fools joke. However, it’s more like a St. Patrick’s Day joke.

    My word. Yet again I realize I’d rather not live in Alabama. A crowd gathers because they want the pot of gold? Oh boy.
