Wow!! Great to see your St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Can make out from photographs that you really had a fun there. It reminded me of my St. Patrick’s Day function. We had a small get together at one of local Chicago event venues where all my family and relatives were present. We all had an enjoyed day.
