People in Erin nicer than people in KC

No sooner than I've praised the family-oriented nice people attending KC's big Irish Parade, than I discover that possibly the people of Erin, Tennessee are even more so.

Makenzie Launay, of Launay Enterprises, said the shamrock shag hats were selling quickly. Launay said Erin's small-town feel was a nice change of pace from a parade she worked Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

This is much more family-oriented and the people are nicer, said Launay, who lives in Mount Vernon, Ill.
Erin is an anglicization of the Gaelic for 'Ireland', and reputedly the town of Erin is so named due to the hills and creeks reminding the Irish of their native Ireland when they arrived back in Civil War times.
