Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hello All -

Since it is St. Patrick's Day today, I thought I would place some interesting informative web sites here to look at. These links are mainly focused on the Irish migrating into Scotland. However, the Irish did make a huge mark on immigrating to other countries as well - mainly US, Canada, Australia, and NZ. The Northeast areas of the US (such as NY City and Boston) are well known for its Irish communities. The areas of the American South and Pennsylvania during the colonial times (18th and 19th centuries) were heavily immigrated by the Ulster Irish or Scots-Irish (Northern Ireland now).
