St Patrick's Day: Trump's 'Irish proverb' provokes derision on the web
Tweets claim the US president’s quote to impress the Irish PM on the eve of St Patrick’s Day is a poem by a Nigerian poet – but is it?
Did Donald Trump quote a Nigerian poet, thinking he was reciting an Irish proverb? Sorry to disappoint – but probably not.
Appearing with Irish prime minister Enda Kenny on Thursday, Trump said: “As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of that proverb – and this is a good one, this is one I like. I’ve heard it for many many years and I love it.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, here is the Irish prime minister trolling Trump
The U.S. Capitol's St. Patrick's Day rituals did not bring President Donald Trump any luck this year.
On St. Patrick's Day eve, Trump was put in an awkward position when Ireland's Prime Minister Enda Kenny stood beside him and subtly called out his immigration policy in front of everyone.

After Trump discussed the country's "high levels of optimism" and vowed America would remain a loyal friend to Ireland, he introduced Kenny, who explained the tradition of gathering at the White House every year to honor Ireland's patron saint.  Read more...

Trump tried to share a proverb for St. Patrick's Day and it didn't go very well
After an Ireland-centric day including meetings with its prime minister, Enda Kenny, Donald Trump attempted to bestow some wisdom by sharing his favorite proverb of "many years." 
Only, as Twitter users quickly pointed out, it wasn't a proverb. And it wasn't Irish.

Ireland's prime minister will use his St. Patrick's Day visit to the White House to talk about Trump's immigration policies
WASHINGTON (AP) — While shamrocks and smiles typically define the Irish prime minister's traditional St. Patrick's Day visit to the White House, with President Donald Trump the celebration could turn more serious.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny has signaled that he will use the meeting — scheduled for Thursday, one day before St. Patrick's Day — to talk about Brexit and Trump's immigration policies. Kenny, who labeled Trump's language "dangerous" during the campaign, has said it is important to keep the standing date, which some critics have suggested he should cancel.
Speaking to The Irish Times, Kenny said, "European leaders need to be over here talking to Republicans, Democrats and the administration about what membership of the European Union means and the relationship that it can have with as powerful an entity as the United States."
Earlier this year, Trump said Britain's decision to leave the European Union would "end up being a great thing" and predicted the bloc would continue to break apart. The comments echoed Trump's rhetoric during his presidential campaign.
Kenny will be the first European Union politician to meet with Trump after British Prime Minister Theresa May. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was scheduled to come to the White House on Tuesday, but that visit was moved back to Friday because of the snow.
Kenny also plans to push Trump on his plans for Irish people living in the country illegally. At a dinner in Washington Wednesday night, Kenny said, "We will of course raise with Congress and with President Trump himself that the necessary work will be done for our undocumented to be allowed to come in from the cold, feel the warmth of this great country and relieve the burden of having to live in that limbo land."
Trump ran on a promise to curtail illegal immigration. His revised travel ban, affecting travelers from six Muslim-majority nations, was set to go effect Thursday before it was put on hold Wednesday by a federal judge in Hawaii.
Richard Haas, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, a nonpartisan think tank, said this meeting is more serious than in past years largely because of the fallout from Brexit, which is raising concerns about Ireland's economic prospects and the future for Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. He said, "You add all this up and this has become a much more substantive meeting."
Kenny spokesman Feargal Purcell said Kenny wants to discuss ways to find "positive outcomes" for an estimated 50,000 Irish people in the country illegally, and he will "outline the positive engagement there can be between Europe and the United States, especially in a post Brexit context."
The St. Patrick's Day White House event dates back to the 1950s and has become an important standing engagement for Ireland, which has strong emotional and ancestral ties to the United States. The prime minister is set to have a one-on-one meeting with Trump Thursday, as well as attend a luncheon at the Capitol and an evening reception at the White House.
Traditionally, the prime minister presents the president with a bowl of shamrocks to mark the occasion.
Last year, Kenny was greeted warmly by a green tie-wearing President Barack Obama, who gave an affectionate speech, calling it one of his favorite events of the year, because "I get to welcome my people."
According to Census data, 32.7 million United States residents claimed Irish ancestry in 2015, making it the second most commonly cited European ancestry, following German. Trump earlier this month proclaimed March as Irish-American Heritage Month, as the president does every year.
This may be the last year Kenny, Ireland's leader since 2011, makes the White House pilgrimage on behalf of Ireland. Kenny, who has faced pressure from party colleagues to resign over a stumbling response to a police scandal, has said he will address his political future when he returns from America.
Some political critics in Ireland called on Kenny to cancel this year's meeting and a number of petition campaigns urged a boycott, including one from former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, an Irish American. But The Irish Times editorialized in favor of attending, saying, "no matter how gratifying to our sense of moral superiority, a boycott will be seen as a lost opportunity for face time with the world's most important leader."
Kenny has to "walk a tightrope," said Henry Farrell, a professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University. Farrell said Kenny "does not want to be seen as too close to Trump or to be identified with Trump and the same time he wants to preserve a relationship with a guy who is going to be president of the United States" for the next four years.

How Green Became Associated With St. Patrick’s Day and All Things Irish

On St. Patrick’s Day , everyone is seeing green —whether it’s the green Chicago River , green beer, green milkshakes or green clothing and bead necklaces. Many might believe that the Emerald Isle and the color green are linked because of the country’s verdant landscape, but the association actually traces its roots to Irish political history.
In fact, blue is believed to have been associated with Ireland before green was. Henry the VIII claimed to be king of Ireland in the 16th century, and his flag at that point would have been blue. That’s at least one reason why a blue flag with a harp is associated with the Irish President. (The harp is one of the two main symbols of Ireland, along with the Shamrock, and it dates back to the bards whose songs and stories were the chief entertainment in medieval Gaelic society.) A light blue became associated with the Order of St. Patrick, an 18th century era order of knights, perhaps to create a shade of blue for the Irish that was different from the royal blue associated with the English, says Timothy McMahon, Vice President of the American Conference for Irish Studies.
McMahon argues the earliest use of green for nationalistic reasons was seen during the violent Great Irish Rebellion of 1641, in which displaced Catholic landowners and bishops rebelled against the authority of the English crown, which had established a large plantation in the north of Ireland under King James I in the early 17th century. Military commander Owen Roe O’Neill helped lead the rebellion, and used a green flag with a harp to represent the Confederation of Kilkenny, a group that sought to govern Ireland and kick out the Protestants who had taken control of that land in the north of Ireland. (They were ultimately defeated by Oliver Cromwell .)

The color green cropped up again during an effort in the 1790s to bring nonsectarian, republican ideas to Ireland, inspired by the American revolution and the French revolution. The main society that promoted this idea, the Society of United Irishmen, wore green, especially an Irish version of the “liberty caps” worn during the French Revolution. One police report described their uniform as comprised of a dark green shirt cloth coat, green and white striped trousers, and a felt hat turned up on one side with a green emblematic cockade.
Though the rest of the uniform eventually faded from popular wear, the importance of the color green spread, thanks in part to the poems and ballads written during this time, most famously “The Wearing of the Green.”
“You start to see different traditions building up around colors — the Protestant tradition is orange, the nationalist tradition associated with the Catholics is green,” McMahon adds.
The origins of the wearing of green clothing in the U.S. on St. Patrick’s Day and for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in general date back to the 19th century, when waves of Irish immigrants came to America looking for better job opportunities, especially after the Great Famine of the 1840s-50s, and began wearing green and carrying Irish flags along with American flags as a point of pride for their home country.

216 d ago Venture BeatHere’s why Irish entrepreneurs’ eyes are smiling on St. Patrick’s Day
Read on Venture Beat | Share | Tweet

There are a lot of mature and emerging tech hubs around Europe now. But there remains an unusually tight link between Ireland’s tech economy and Silicon Valley.
Of course, this has been controversial at times, with companies like Apple accused of using Ireland as a tax haven. But whatever the original motivations on either side, the relationship seems to have expanded considerably. In fact, 220 U.S. West Coast companies now have operations in Ireland, according to stats released today by IDA Ireland , the country’s investment agency.
Among the more notable U.S. tech companies with Irish campuses: IBM, Google, Airbnb, Dropbox, Fitbit, and DocuSign.
Just in the past year:
Fitbit and Slack opened European HQs in Dublin. Amazon, Oracle, and LinkedIn all announced expansions of their Dublin operations.
This growth also seems to have benefited Irish startups. According to the Irish Venture Capital Association , Irish startups raised $952 million in venture capital in 2016, up from $304 million in 2016.
But as much of a boost as Silicon Valley has given the local economy, on this St. Patrick’s Day, IDA Ireland wants you to know that the relationship runs in both directions. With that in mind, here are a few stats provided by the agency that highlight Ireland’s impact on the U.S.:
Irish companies have created 100,000 US jobs. According to IDA, which cites figures form the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Ireland is the seventh-largest source of foreign investment in the U.S. There are 9,000 Irish-born people now living in the Bay Area. Across the U.S., 36 million Americans have Irish heritage (including me!), and 155,000 Irish citizens live in the U.S. Irish companies employ 25,000 people in California alone.
And though they may not officially describe themselves as “Irish” companies, San Francisco-based startups like Stripe and Intercom have Irish founders who have established sizable operations back in Ireland.
So, this St. Patrick’s Day, maybe avoid the green beer. But do buy a beer for an Irish founder and tell them “Sláinte!”

St. Patrick’s Day is the time to break out a green sweater, pin a shamrock brooch to your chest, and sip a pint of Guinness. But for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge , it’s an occasion to go above and beyond with green fashion —and, yes, beer consumption.
On Friday, the royal representatives met with soldiers of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards in west London after their parade; Will is the honorary colonel of the troupe. Will and Kate showed off their on-point attire and a penchant for festooning themselves with holiday-appropriate greenery during the festivities, as is traditional. They even got their fill of Guinness , the famously rich and dark Irish brew.

Another all-important attendee of the festivities: Domnhall, the giant Irish wolfhound who serves as a mascot for the battalion. Kate distributed shamrocks to officers during the parade, too, although it’s hard to imagine them stacking up to the verdant decoration she pinned to her own coat.

Dallas St. Patrick's Day Parade Festival
Each year, more than 100,000 people line up along two miles of Greenville Ave in Dallas for a massive St. Patrick's Day party.
The pun is obvious, because the entire avenue becomes a sea of green, with families and revelers alike dressing up for one of the largest St. Patrick's day parades in the United States, and the largest in the Southwest.
It's not even that Dallas is a particularly Irish city. It's just an excuse to have fun as a community every year, since 1979.
And in 2012, there was almost a year without a parade after its main sponsor the Dallas Observer pulled out , taking Budweiser with it. The parade organizers publicly announced they needed $40,000 to stay afloat. That's a relatively small investment for Mark Cuban, the billionaire Dallas Mavericks NBA franchise owner and "Shark Tank" investor, who came to the rescue, donating an extra $25,000 to the parade committee's fund for the Dallas Independent School District.
For the last six years, the Mavericks have been the primary sponsor of the parade, and Cuban was the parade's grand marshal last year, riding atop a float with his two daughters and son.
Cuban told the local press at the time that he couldn't let a Dallas tradition die, especially one that he enjoyed so much in his younger days since moving to the city in 1982.
Dallas St. Patrick's Day Parade Festival"I figured that I killed a whole bunch of brain cells," he told NBC's Dallas affiliate , referring to some parade-goers' tendency to get rowdy. "I want to give everybody else a chance."
Since then, funding the parade has become a tradition of its own for Cuban, he told Business Insider.
It's not only fun, but it's good for business. He's used the parade to promote his basketball team and some of the small businesses he's invested in, like two of this year's sponsors, Beat Box Beverages and fitness tracker company Moov.
Alex Macon, online arts and entertainment editor at D Magazine in Dallas, said Cuban's investment in 2012 improved his image among Dallas natives.
"The word 'savior' was bandied about in bar conversations when it first happened, only a little ironically," Macon told Business Insider via email. "I think there's a lot of eye-rolling at Cuban's persona here in Dallas," he said, referring to Cuban's history of brash behavior at basketball games and on television, "but most people seemed genuinely grateful that somebody was keeping the parade afloat."
Macon noted that Cuban saved the parade the year after the Mavs won the NBA Championship in 2011, and the combination won over many people who weren't fans of him personally. "Those two things will get you a lot of goodwill here," Macon said.
This year's parade, held on March 11, had an especially large turnout of 125,000, and its grand marshal was recently retired Dallas police chief David Brown.
