Irish ayes

You’re in luck if you’re hoping for authentic Irish fare on Saturday.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Elwell
It’s said that St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Except that there never were any snakes in Ireland. And the snakes he said were driven out were attacking him during a 40-day fast which, let’s be frank, could make anybody a bit loopy.
