Shamrocks, Harps, and Shillelaghs

Break out your green – Saint Patrick’s Day (March 17) is fast approaching!  This traditionally religious holiday has in its emigration to America largely morphed into a secularized celebration of all things Irish – further punctuated by President Obama’s 2011 proclamation designating the month of March as Irish-American Heritage Month.  Check out some of these resources available from the Georgia State University Library that explore Saint Patrick and the holiday, Irish music, and Irish-American identity.
