For those of you just finishing up with the grand parade on 5th Ave in New York, what a better way, unless you’re stuck up on a lamppost, to spend the rest of St. Paddy’s day, a pint of Guinness in hand, with some good friends, listening to a recording of the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem sing Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go. So New York. So Ireland.
Try to listen to it, without tearing up. If your heart is truly Irish, it’s impossible.
