Shamrocks bring thoughts of Ireland
By Kathy Conner Cornell VCE Southside Master Gardener When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, I get nostalgic for Baltimore. My husband and I grew up in the suburb Dundalk, named after a town in Ireland. At any watering hole on March 17th, you could find green beer and corned beef and cabbage. If you were lucky, there would also be a choral group singing Irish songs. There were parades and even a fountain in the city was turned green.
