Some LOLs from the Emerald Isle in honour of St Patrick's Day.

1. This sign in Carlingford, County Louth is Irishness personified: make your point, without taking yourself too seriously.

2. When Father Ted creator Graham Linehan responded to U.S. vice president Joe Biden's inadvertent praise of the comedy series.

Very proud. RT @thetorse: well that's some claim !

Don't worry though, just call into the cathedral and you can have your phone of us should be here or in the priests' house next door :)P.S. Don't worry, I didn't look at anything on your phone, who knows what you adolescent boys be up to!!!May God be with you always,Yours in faith, Fr P. McMahon :):)
