Local Irish Couple Reflects on St. Patrick's Day in the U.S.

Wearing green and having fun is what many of us do on Saint Patrick's Day. But the feelings are a little different for those who are from Ireland. Danny and Colette O'Callaghan have been married for more than 40 years, and are from Cork, Ireland. They say they do notice differences in how Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated. Of course both countries have spectacular parades, but in Ireland it was a religious holiday first. The O'Callaghan's say "You went to church, then the parades, then possibly off to a pub, but for some it was a time with family, hearing stories of magic and leprechauns." The O'Callaghans plan to get back to Ireland for visits, and possibly to live there once again in the future.
