Fir Na Tine
« on: March 16, 2011, 01:08:19 pm »
When the great potato famine and massive Irish immigration to the East Coast of the United States, factories and shops had signs reading "NINA"-No Irish Need Apply. The only jobs they could get were the ones no one else wanted -jobs that were dirty, dangerous or both - fire-fighters and police officers. It was not an uncommon event to have several firefighters killed at a working fire. City Fire Department's like Boston, Chicago, and New York are deeply rooted in Irish tradition because of this.
 
Have a blessed Feast Of Saint Patrick tomorrow.
 
(Even though I'm only half Irish, I am still honoring any offers to "Kiss me I'm Irish")
