Plastic paddies

Out on the razz tonight for St Paddy's Day. Obviously, like a lot of other people I am only tenuously Irish. The Boggs do have Irish ancestory going back - the Peat-Boggs were a wealthy Wexford farming family back in the day. Which is more than enough of an excuse for me to wear the shamrock. But never has the word sham been used more appropriately .

Interesting fact. Both my mother and umbrella minister Gavin Lennon's father can't stand U2. And it doesn't stop there. They have both been to Dublin. Freaky or what? Gav could almost be a relation. I am seeing him tonight at some dreary book launch before I hit Waxy O'Connors. I wonder if he will be wearing his Thin Lizzy 1978 tour T-Shirt as well?
