My favorite St. Patrick's Day memory involves a firm set-down and a great enlightenment from my Irish grandmother the day I walked in in a "Saint Paddy's Day" shirt. She gave me this horrid look and set me down to explain being Irish wasn't about four leaf clovers and booze, but about a will to survive, and a heart to go on.

I remember my grandmother (who was Irish) sitting me down and explaining who I descend from after giving me a scathing look the day I walked in celebrating "St. Paddy's Day". It was then I learned it wasn't 4 leaf clovers and booze that make up my Irish side - but a will to survive and a heart to hold on.

My father was always great at spotting 4 leaf clovers. But the best ones are mounted on a piece of cardboard when he was in Ireland during WWII.

I read your blog post about Notre Dame and the Civil War at the New York Times Opinionator. I am from New York City originally, which has its own Irish traditions. My husband, who is of Italian heritage, also has Irish relatives. I loved your story of the first Fighting Irish and would love to have your book in my Civil War library.
