Here's my list of things you might not know (and you just might because I have such smart blog readers!)
1. Ireland's traditional color is blue, not green. Shocking, isn't it? Well, I suppose that depends on how far you want to go back. I'm thinking there wasn't an official color when Patrick came to Ireland and if even if there had been, he wasn't Irish. (Also shocking, right? He was a Roman Briton, likely born in Wales or Scotland, according to who you want to believe.) Here's one report about the Irish color blue.
