St. Patrick’s Day according to an Irishman

First lesson: stop saying 'St. Patty's Day'

As Americans, we all know St. Patrick’s Day as that glorious 24 hours in March where people dawn bad leprechaun costumes and drink a bunch of green beer. But how far from the origins have we gone? Perhaps an Irishman would know…

We met up with Paul Shanley, owner of beloved Cincy Irish pub Molly Malone’s who gave his thoughts on the do’s and don’t’s of St. Patrick’s Day.

First hint: stop calling it St. Patty’s Day.

(Our own personal Irishman says so.)
