OAW: St. Patrick's Day celebrations live from The Pier Inn / The Rakish Paddy in County Longford, Ireland


As St. Patrick's Day celebrations kick off in the capital they've already been going in Ireland proper. In County Longford, a local double named pub -- both The Pier Inn and The Rakish Paddy -- is preparing for what comes through the rest of the weekend after the parade wraps up.

Paddy Farrell joins Patricia Boal from the pub and talks about its history, what's planned for the day, the calm before the storm of the big party, and if drinking Green Guinness is a real thing.
