    I did make a few quick visits to the angry Irish thread but it was too depressing. Good luck with this one.

    Just wanted to say that does everyone know St Patrick's day has been moved this year. Its 15th March 2008 instead of the usual 17th.

    The reason is the unusually early Easter week and apparently there is a rule that both can't be in the same week.

    There will still probably be events on the 17th. I think its just the religious festival that has moved.

    Irish cultural expression in Liverpool

    Liverpool has a long standing public image as an Irish city, so much so that it is often jokingly referred to as the ‘Capital of Ireland’. For many Liverpool-born second and third-generation Irish people traditions of music and dance are ways in which they can connect to a sense of Irish identity and heritage and link up with other community members.

    All new to me. I knew no one who engaged in Irish traditions, dancing and the likes. I have Irish in me and we never did any of that. I'm sure those of Irish parents may have done those sort of things, I never knew any. Once a generation passes the connection is lost and all that stops.

    The myth gets stronger as time goes on.

    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
