I love St. Patrick’s Day.
I especially love St Patrick’s Day here in Peterborough Ontario. I can remember the first year my good friend Keri Ferguson moved to Peterborough. I told her we need to go out “early” to celebrate St Patty’s Day.
She doubted what I told her, until we showed up at 11:30am and the line up for the Pub was out the door and down the street.
My family name is Leahy, my Mom’s maiden name is O’Brien. I think it’s just in my blood to love all things Irish.
A few months ago I met a sweet Irish Girl who moved here from Northern Ireland. I instantly connected with her. I wanted to do a Drive By with her and hear what she thought about Canada. I also wanted to introduce her to the members of the Peterborough Canadian Irish Club.
She was shy but I convinced her. She recently connected with another Irish girl who moved here and ironically has the same name: Niamh.
I took Niamh and Niamh for a drive. Here’s what happened(watch time 8:10)
I hope you find great crack this St Patrick’s Day.
