Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! We now have the shamrock emoji live on site in celebration (just scroll down to find out how to use emojis on site). shamrock

Obviously these are difficult times, but we hope you'll join us in the virtual Gransnet pub (as we're currently urged to avoid real-life ones) to raise a virtual Guinness and have a good old knees-up.

Join the party by leaving a comment below and tell us your tipple of

I'll just have a lime and soda please. I know it's not alcohol but it is green.

Top of the morning afternoon to everyone. Let's have some lovely traditional Irish music at our party. I have just been looking for my Planxty cd but I can't find it. I expect they are on YouTube. Can anyone entertain us with a bit of Riverdance? shamrock

Happy St Patrick's Day.

For this occasion my tipple would be Carolan's Irish Cream liqueur.

Yes same as you Pittcity !!

The bar is open and first drinks are on us!

In case it's not too late, we've got a few Irish recipes here. Although personally I'm quite partial to Nigella's (not particularly traditional) chocolate Guinness cake.

And rubysong, you asked for Riverdance, so here you go. We have dug out actual footage from last year's GNHQ St Paddy's celebration. grin

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all!!

I'll have a cocktail please, Black Velvet, which is Guinness and champagne. I had this once in Dublin on my DDiL's hen weekend.
I used to know all the verses to Paddy McGinty's Goat and Delaney's Donkey.... maybe I'd remember them after another cocktail!!

Thank you Lara. They are lovely.
