St. Patrick's Day is this Sunday. My maternal grandmother was Irish - her family came from Mitchelstown, Co. Cork.
I remember certain "Irish" things about her: her love of butter, the sheer amount of potatoes she would peel and cook every day for her family and her shamrock earrings which I got when she died. They're as tacky as anything, but I still think of her every time I see them in my drawer even though she's been dead for close to 30 years.
