It all starts before the big day with the greening of the fountain in Forsyth Park and the Irish Festival--Tara Feis held a few days before.
This celebration has been going on for 190 years, with a few breaks. Parts, like the Irish Festival are family orientated and some are just an excuse to get drunk.
We stay out of Savannah and usually go somewhere this time of year, crowds are not our thing and drunk crowds ever less so. But I'm a bit Irish on the maternal side, we're from the poor branch of the Kennedys. So Erin Go Bragh.
