The other day we went with some friends to a festival in the nearby village of Ardmore. It’s called a “Pattern Festival” because it’s built around a celebration of Ardmore’s founder and patron saint, Declan, who came to this area before St. Patrick came to Ireland. If you want to find out more about it, this is their website.
So here we are in an ancient seaside village during a religious-themed festival and what’s the first song the band plays? Sweet Home Alabama.
