Our Irish Uncle

Uncle Sam, Killarney, Ireland, 2015

Today is Independence Day here in the United States of America.  It’s a day when we celebrate things that are typically and traditionally “American.”

So, what can be more typically American than our friend with the white beard, Uncle Sam?  (No, it is not Colonel Sanders.)  Here are some photos of Uncle Sam that I made a couple of years ago, but the place where we were was a little unusual – Killarney, Ireland.

I was in Ireland in July 2015 and the town of Killarney was going to have a parade to celebrate the United States’ Independence Day.  In the days before the parade, this statue of Uncle Sam was set up on one of the main streets in town where the parade was to take place.
So, happy Fourth of July, everyone!
