    LOL ... Great post. If St. Mary's had a good guitar player and some tambourines, it might still be consecrated .... I have always felt Guinness was highly over-rated, at least as you can get it here, even in REAL Irish pubs. Let me know if you find an Irish beer you like. Most of these look absolutely horrid, which is what you would expect from a U.K. publication reviewing supposedly Irish beers: https://www.independent.co.uk/extras/indybest/food-drink/beer-cider-perry/irish-beers-st-patricks-day-brands-a6911586.html

    McGrath is pronounced "McGraw" in this song. Song and Ballad – Master McGrath Eighteen sixty eight being the date and the year, Those Waterloo sportsmen and more did appear; For to gain the great prizes and bear them awa', Never counting on Ireland and Master McGrath. On the twelfth of December, that day of renown, McGrath and his keeper they left Lurgan town; A gale in the Channel, it soon drove them o'er, On the thirteenth they landed on fair England's shore. And when they arrived there in big London town, Those great English sportsmen all gathered round - And one of the gentlemen gave a "Ha! Ha!" Saying, "Is that the great dog you call Master McGrath?" And one of those gentlemen standing around Says, "I don't care a damn for your Irish greyhound," And another he laughs with a scornful "Ha! Ha! We'll soon humble the pride of your Master McGrath." Then Lord Lurgan stepped forward and said, "Gentlemen, If there's any among you has money to spend - For your grand english nobles I don't care a straw - Here's five thousand to one upon Master McGrath." Then McGrath he looked up and he wagged his old tail, Informing his lordship, "I know what you mane, Don't fear, noble Brownlow, don't fear them, agra, For I'll tarnish their laurels," says Master McGrath. And Rose stood uncovered, the great English pride, Her master and keeper were close by her side; They have let her away and the crowd cried "Hurrah!" For the pride of all England – and Master McGrath. As Rose and the Master they both ran along, "Now I wonder," says Rose, "what took you from your home; You should have stayed there in your Irish domain, And not come to gain laurels on Albion's plain." "Well, I know," says McGrath, "we have wild heather bogs But you'll find in old Ireland there's good men and dogs. Lead on, bold Britannia, give none of your jaw, Stuff that up your nostrils," says Master McGrath. Then the hare she went on just as swift as the wind He was sometimes before her and sometimes behind. Rose gave the first turn according to law; But the second was given by Master McGrath. The hare she led on with a wonderful view. And swift as the wind o'er the green field she flew. But he jumped on her back and he held up his paw "Three cheers for old Ireland," says Master McGrath. I've known many greyhounds that filled me with pride, In the days that are gone, but it can't be denied, That the greatest and the bravest that the world ever saw, Was our champion of champions, great Master McGrath.
