This is the time of year when I feel a bit tweedy, a bit green in the wool, a bit Irish, even though the Rodricks clan from which I descend was Portuguese (Rodrigues) and not Irish (Roderick). From years of experience, I know something about the wide interest in things Irish - this tendency the non-Irish have to identify with the freckled people. It's a seasonal condition. St. Patrick's Day, falling as it does on the cusp of spring, catches even the most miserable among us in a hopeful and ready mood.

When you've gone from Baltimore to Dundalk, you've gone nearly from one side of the nation to the other - from County Cork in the southwest all the way to County Louth, north of Dublin - and if you made that trip today you'd find some serious celebrating as people try to put their own stamp on a uniquely American holiday: St. Patrick's Day. For many years, Ireland ignored its patron saint on his blustery, bone-chilling day, but it finally succumbed to...

It is never too early to issue a warning. St. Patrick's Day will be upon us in a few weeks, and, while people are still reasonably sober they may heed this caution.  The diminutive of the saint's name is Paddy ; it derives from the Irish version of his name, Padraig.  Many people on these shores mistakenly refer to St. Patty's Day , but Patty  is the diminutive of Patricia . If you want to be on familiar terms, and...

St. Patrick's Day is when every Irish politician journeys to Washington in order to solve the Northern Ireland problem once and for all. Joseph A. Hairston is not Jerry Hairston but they both bear watching. When St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Church is sold, the best use would be (A) casino; (B) after-hours bar with very loud music; (C) nursing home; (D) exceedingly pricey condo or (E) church.

The postman must have thought our home was an Irish law firm when the letters addressed to Kelly, Monaghan or O'Hare arrived at Guilford Avenue. These are the surnames of my father, grandfather and great-aunt. My father celebrates this feast day by having his friends come to the house; my grandfather, Edward Jacques Monaghan, did it the other way around: Each St. Patrick's Day, he made a grand tour of Baltimore, winning friends along the way. Pop Monaghan was an ambassador of the green.

As a resident of the Inner Harbor, I'm shocked by the details of what happened downtown duringSt. Patrick's Day weekend ("The St. Patrick's Day brawl," May 16). And I was also dismayed by how quickly the brawl apparently materialized. However, I'm grateful Maryland's Public Information Act made it possible for your reporter to unravel details as they were happening in real time. I'm just sorry city officials downplayed this violence as it leads to citizen complacency until something serious occurs.

State Del. Pat McDonough was right to complain about violence among black youths at the Inner Harbor over theSt. Patrick's Day weekend, and it took his words to get Baltimore City MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blake to visit the harbor months after the problem arose. Ms. Rawlings-Blake visited the area with her security detail. If the mayor were really concerned by what happened there she should visit the place without her bodyguards. I have experienced the problems and the foul language on display over the holidays at the Inner Harbor, and Delegate McDonough told it like it is. J. Michael Collins, Reisterstown

If not for reporter Peter Hermann 's assiduous reporting of the mayhem in the city onSt. Patrick's Day, we may never have known that pandemonium was the rule of the streets that night ("St. Patrick's Day violence exceeded initial reports, police dispatch tapes show," May 13). It's common knowledge that police records are sometimes "massaged" in order to maintain a certain positive image. But to exclude certain events from police reports is unacceptable. What plays a major role in this false reporting is a desire to portray Baltimore City, and especially the Inner Harbor, as tourist attractions.

Just in time forSt. Patrick's Day, a bit of Erin treasure sparkles like a rainbow right in our own, soon to be green, community back yard. The Emerald Isle Club, founded in 1956, meets once a month in Parkville and keeps the Irish heritage alive to pass on to future generations. In finding more details about this club, it was a pleasure speaking to a true Irish gem, Norah Kalkman, of Towson. A club member since 1966, Norah embraced the group like a pot of gold when she came over from County Mayo in western Ireland.
