To my sweet, silly little shamrock….
Our precious “pot of gold”….
HAPPY St. PATTY’S DAY
Hello my precious friend!I dedicate this page to the memory of the great “Miss Molly O’Malley” interviews and to all the fun we had back then.I figured that might put a smile on your sweet doggie face, since the Molly O’Malley interviews brought us so much joy and laughter and were such special, silly times that we shared together – Gosh, how I miss it!(For those reading this who have no idea what the “Molly O’Malley” interviews were, please refer to the memorial page entitled, “Molly & Me: A Tale of Best Friends”).I thank you, my dear sweet friend, for leaving me with those wonderful memories.I think of them often with a smile.But, I have to say that since you have left us, my alter ego, Patty O’Shane-McFatty, has lost her will to interview anyone else – and consequently, the Blarney News has closed its doors for good.You see, Patty O’Shane-McFatty knew it just would never be the same with anyone else, so she decided to end her rewarding career on a high note (though a sad one), and carry with her the incredible memories of the famous Irish starlit from Dublin, Miss Molly O’Malley.
Of course, this page certainly would not be complete without a visit from your old pal and frequent participant in the Molly O’Malley interviews….. the infamous and wealthy “Miss Chloe of Killarney”!
Miss Chloe of Killarney has kept a low profile since you’ve been gone.Though, it is rumored that she is still secretly having a scandalous affair with that scoundrel, Shamus McDoogle – though she has done a pretty good job at staying out of the tabloids.Of course, she is still the heiress to the Riverdance fortune (which unfortunately Shamus McDoogle is well aware of), and over time she has developed her own unique and unconventional style of Riverdancing – much to her family’s embarrassment and disapproval.But, as you well remember, that crazy and rebellious Chloe of Killarney always did march to the beat of her own drummer!
I did hear that Chloe of Killarney was given the task of recruiting some of the new Riverdancers for this year’s performance season, and from what I’ve heard it is quite a motley crew that she has acquired!It ought to make for a wonderfully interesting season of performances this year – I can’t wait to read the reviews!
There are some very Old World, traditional riverdancers ….
There are some very skilled dancers….
There are some very serious dancers….
There are some dancers who are just happy to be dancing….
There are some dancers who are arrogant show-offs….
And there are some dancers who.... um.... hmm.... well.... let's just say that they sort of dance to the beat of their own drummer! (Very much like Chloe herself).
(Hello?…. Earth to Mr. Celtic Ken doll…. Hello?Hello?Hello? …. Hmm… Clearly, the lights are on, but nobody’s home!Well, at least he appears to be having a good time!)
But all kidding aside, Molly Girl…. Your old buddy, Chloe, wanted to stop by to say “hello” and to tell you that she misses you more than words can say.I know if she could, she would thank you for all the love and kindness you showed her over the years – and she will never forget how you so lovingly took her under your wing when she was brought into the family as a lonely stray and was so scared to be in a strange new place.She will never be able to thank you enough for that.You were her protector, her teacher, her mentor, her sister, her partner in crime, but most of all…. you were her very beloved friend and she loves and misses you so very much.Always know how very special you are to her – and how very special you are to us all.
So sweet girl, in honor of St. Patty’s Day, I send you these wonderful Irish blessings, prayers, poems, and sayings – and along with them I send you my love.May you remember, today and always, just how very much you are LOVED!
May the roads rise to meet you,
May the winds be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again...
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
May God give you... For every storm, a rainbow, For every tear, a smile, For every care, a promise, And a blessing in each trial, For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, For every sigh, a sweet song, And an answer for each prayer.
May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all year long.
May the leprechauns be near you,
To spread luck along your way,
And may all the Irish angels,
Smile upon you on St. Patrick's Day.
May God grant you always
a sunbeam to warm you,
a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering angel so nothing can harm you,
laughter to cheer you,
faithful friends near you,
and whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow.
May the soft winds freshen your spirit.
May the sunshine brighten your heart
May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you.
And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun,
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness, and riches,
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
May you have…
A world of wishes at your command,
God and his angels close at hand,
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in you heart.
May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings,
Right beside your door.
Always remember to forget the things that made you sad,
But never forget to remember the things that made you glad,
Always remember to forget the troubles that passed away,
But never forget to remember the blessings that come each day.
May your blessings outnumber
The Shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
May the sun shine, all day long,
Everything go right, and nothing wrong,
May those you love bring love back to you,
And may all the wishes you wish come true!
May you have...
Lucky stars above you,
Sunshine on your way,
Many friends to love you,
Joy in work and play;
Laughter to outweigh each care,
In your heart, a song,
And gladness waiting everywhere
All your whole life long!
May the good saints protect you,
And bless you today,
And may troubles ignore you,
Each step of the way.
I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before.
May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore.
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way-
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all…
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work, or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss…
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much:
Good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief –
Don’t shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.
My beloved Molly, I can’t begin to tell you what you meant to me.You were such a special part of my life.You truly were a pot of gold! – and we were all so very blessed to have you in our lives!So, until we meet again, my precious friend…. I bid you a VERY HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY – Miss Molly O’Malley!
I Love You….Always & Forever….
Your Old Pal,
P.S…. By the way Molly Girl, I chose this upbeat, rowdy tune for this memorial page because it just seemed like a song that you might pick.It reflects your positive, upbeat spirit, and it even mentions things you always used to do (like always sit at my feet).And it also sort of reminds me of the rowdy, silly times we shared together when we acted like a bunch of big obnoxious kids. We sure did have fun, didn’t we?Interestingly, the song is by the Irish group, “Flogging Molly” – but I am sure you already knew that. So, here's to you, Molly-pops!

Hello, my father had a wonderful yellow lab who worked with him on his fishing boat when I was a young lad and so I decided to look at your memorial when I saw your dog was a yellow lab too. You have made a very nice tribute to your dog. I can see that you loved her very much. I am from Dublin, Ireland and I must say that I laughed so hard reading about the Molly O'Malley interviews and reading your St. Patrick's Day page. It was very funny. And I thought maybe you were named after the Isle of Skye, but I see you are a Native American Indian instead. Very nice memorial and a very pretty dog.

*Thank you so much Sean Patrick McMannus for stopping by Molly's memorial and for leaving your wonderful comments. I am sure Molly would be delighted and her Molly O'Malley alter-ego would be thrilled to know that a gentleman from Dublin, Ireland enjoyed her pages and found humor in something that once brought her such joy when she was here. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful posting.
