Irish blood runs in Quebec veins

17 March, 2011 ,

March 17th is St. Patrick’s day, and this year many of us will be only too happy to dress up in green, sport an Irish clover and get together with friends and enjoy a couple of beers.

Did you know that according to some experts, 40% of Quebecers, if not more, can trace at least one Irish ancestor? Of course, you don’t need to have Celtic blood in your veins to celebrate the festival of the patron saint of Ireland…

To become a part of this large community, here’s what I propose: a good Irish Beef Stew which you can follow up with an Irish Coffee (pour a spoonful of whiskey into a hot mug and add coffee to it. Spoon whipped cream on top, but don’t mix. Serve immediately). O’Cheers!
