Wherein I Discover I'm Irish
This is the first year that I realized I was Irish. Now you might find that odd, but when I was adopted the agency told my parents I was English and French. Nowadays, with DNA testing readily available, I discovered I’m actually over 52% British and Irish and only 17% French.
I suspect my birth mother (or the agency) just avoided mentioning my ancestry since in the 1950’s there was a greater stigma attached to that. I’m definitely at home in Celtic countries, one or another.
So Happy St. Patrick’s Day (even though he wasn’t born in Ireland). Me? I’m skipping the green beer and headed for the single malt. (#St.Pat’s)
