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!

In fact, my family and I used to try and best one another with our own original limericks (alas, these were of theThere once was a girl from Nantucket” variety). So to keep it clean, I’ve chosen an all-age-appropriate limerick for you:

A funny young fellow named Perkins
Was terribly fond of small gherkins.
One day after tea
He ate ninety three
And pickled his internal workings.

For more St. Patty’s Day fun, check out my Go Erin Go Facebook page this Sunday for an Emerald Island Quiz, Green-Themed Photo Essay and a good Irish joke or two!

And now for our articles this week:

New:  Erin Goes Global, Year 2 Highlight *Video*

At the end of Year #1 of my “Erin Goes Global” RTW trip, I did a video recap of the highlights. So I thought I’d do another video recap of my second year on the road. Here’s a short 3-minute clip of my amazing Year #2:

Favorite:  Belfast’s Peace Walls & Photo Essay

I was looking forward to traveling to Belfast to see a bit of Northern Ireland. While most tourists are interested in visiting Belfast’s new Titanic Museum, I was much more keen to take a walking tour of the city’s notorious Peace Walls.

Here’s a video and photo essay explaining the walls’ significance.

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.  It was a brisk sunny day and so we strolled the grounds surrounding the castle before we headed in to dine. Such a lovely way to work up an appetite!
