      I'll raise a glass to my Grand-pappy, who was from Clonmany in Donegal.

      I had planned to go to the pub this evening, but having been reminded that anybody who has listened to a U2 album will be out pretending they really love Guinness and wearing a green foam hat with appropriate corporate sponsor's logo all over it, I shall just go to my local shop and take home a few bottles of London Pride instead.

      I ****ing hate Plastic Paddy Day. It's bad enough having central London snagged up at the weekend for the parade, but today the pubs will just be full of wankers.

      All my maternal family are from Ireland and I've never once felt the urge to celebrate this day. I don't even mind the plastics, it's just a good excuse for a party so fair play. I drink Guinness in pubs anyway and if I happen to be out on Paddy's day there's usually a deal on so can't complain but as far as donning a foam hat and enjoying things being dyed green, no, never crossed my mind to get involved.

      Quite - And cue everyone telling us about their Irish ancestory and that's why they're 'celebrating'. Yawn. Oh, my paternal side from Ireland as well. I was born in Derby therefore British.

      PCL, surely?
      "It all ended Hereford United 1, Brighton & Hove Albion 1. We've got dogs on the field, we've got Hereford fans coming across to attack the Brighton players, we've got riot police, we've got stewards, we've got everything here that football shouldn't have. The Brighton players have gone across to their fans, and Albion remain in the football league"
