Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
With a name like Erin, being part-Irish, and sometimes a red head, I think St. Patty’s Day is meant just for me! So I thought this weekend I’d share a little Irish fun...And to me, there’s no better way to kick off of St. Patty’s Day then with a good ‘ole fashioned Irish limerick!

Photo of the Week: Irish Castle, Outside of Dublin
I went on a drive with my good buddy Brid to the outskirts of Dublin to visit a friend. And situated in the heart of some small Irish town was this beautiful iconic Irish Castle.
