Follow along and give me your best Irish brogue…
Here’s a list, me lads and lassies of the keenest and most delicious yellow moons and green clovers for your St. Paddy’s day festivities. As best we can conjure up. You’re mighty sure to find a shepherd’s pie, corned beef, bangers and mash, Irish whiskey, ale or stout among these.
