Forget Republican red and Democrat blue. For one day (and one day only), members of Congress from both sides of the aisle will be full-fledged green. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, National Journal asked several members of the House Friends of Ireland Caucus what their plans are for the holiday, and about their favorite Irish traditions.

 

They’re not for want of options. In addition to the annual White House St. Patrick’s Day festival, the members listed several days' worth of galas and celebrations, many featuring Ireland’s top dignitaries.

As Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-Mo., said: On March 17, “aren’t we all friends of Ireland?”
