A Green Two Days

Hello dear readers, a happy St Patrick’s to you all. Last night I was fortunate enough to be able to go the Geelong Irish Society’s, St Patrick’s Day Cocktail Party. The evening was a glorious celebration, with lots of scrumptious food, stirring Irish music from the band, “Old Melbourne Rd”, and plenty of Irish fluids to encourage the participants to have a happy time. I’ve attached some photos and a videos from last night, and a photo from today’s St Patrick’s fundraising Fete at our local St Patrick’s school.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. Not really sure, great great grand father was arrested in Glasgow in1834, and shipped off to Port Arthur. I’m afraid he changed his name before he was arrested, so we don’t even know our real family name. But we think he was on run from Ireland, running away from the the British persecutions in Ireland. But I like to enjoy the day, and my mate (2nd from right in photo) is from Cork in Ireland, very Irish !!

      1. Aha… whilst I was born here in Australia, my dad is from Cork, I have a lot of family over there. I have been there. My first time was when I was 22 and I went with my dad. A memory to cherish always as he is no longer with me. I love Ireland

      2. That is wonderful Janette. My relatives in Philadelphia are Irish, Costello’s Murphy’s and O’Neil’s. Dad’s sister married an American Costello after the war and moved to Philadelphia
