If you're lucky enough to be Irish, then you're lucky enough

I have an annual ritual on St. Patty's Day to plop on the sofa with a big bowl of popcorn and watch "The Quiet Man". Please if you haven't seen this movie run right out now and get it before it's gone. Starring John Wayne, the beautiful Maureen O'Hara and Barry Fitzgerald. It was set in the beautiful west of Ireland in the village of Cong. All of the outdoor scenes were filmed there.

Here's a little preview clip. Take notice of the scene where she threatens to throw the stoneware crock at her brother but slams it down on the table instead....all those lovely blue dishes. What a beautiful Irish home. A charming movie.

"Lucky stars above you, Sunshine on your way, Many friends to love you, Joy in work and play ~ Laughter to outweigh each care, In your heart a song ~ And gladness waiting everywhere All your whole life long!"
