This is the map of our visitors to for the month of July 2015.  There are over 100 countries represented, and we are overwhelmed by the immensity of the Irish reach around the world.  IrishKass had a crazy idea, why not create an international holiday for the Irish all over the world, not just the Irish Americans.  If we start sharing now, by October 17th we will all be ready to celebrate around the world.  Why October 17th?  It is almost half way from St. Patrick’s Day, so we can spread our Irish celebrations evenly over the year!


Here are some suggestions of how you can celebrate!!

Visit your local Irish pub.
Organize a local pub crawl.
Eat Irish food.
Listen to Irish music, even better if it is live.
Put together a run or walk to raise money for a good cause.
