Some assume that the phrase “the luck of the Irish” means that all Irish have good luck. Others remember that the Irish had terrible luck with the potato blight and famine shook Ireland in the late 1800s. Today, with symbology like the four-leaf clover and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the image of the Irish’s luck is far more positive. Let’s enjoy the luck and the magic of the Irish spirit on this episode of Wind & Rhythm.
