Writer sends luck o' the Irish
It was delightful to see your four leaf clover on the cover of your St. Patrick's Day edition replacing a letter. However, some people might not know that the official symbol for Ireland is the Shamrock, the representation of the Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
The symbol you showed was the four leaf clover, a worthy symbol of the 4 H organization. Often they get confused. A bit of the luck o' the Irish to you and thank you.
