Perhaps you missed it yesterday while your stomach was turning green, but as Kansas City began its festivities IrishKC passed its one millionth view, fittingly on St Patrick’s Day.
There were over 2,000 peeps at the site yesterday, following on from 1,800 the day before. However much I have failed the rest of the year, covering all things claiming to be Irish or Irish-related in the St Patrick’s Day season is impossible - so I don’t even remotely try.
Which makes the large numbers all the more gratifying. Thank you. For yesterday, and for the million. Pure and simple. Thank you.
I’m off to Belfast in a few minutes to exhibit my paintings there tomorrow. As such I won’t be pointing you at photos of the parade (300,000? Wow! Really?) or Browne’s etc., but I’ve already seen a good few myself and looks like you had a great time. Go on FaceBook, you ‘ll see a million. (Ha! A Million!)
For what it’s worth people here reckon the parade was the best Dublin St Patrick’s Day parade ever. Sounds like the idea of commisioning Roddy Doyle to write a story which could then be used as the theme for the parade was a ‘brilliant’ one. Download it for free from Roddy Doyle’s site - you and your kids will love it.
A million is also kind of a nice round number to go out on, now that I think of it…?
