    The four leaf clover may be lucky but the Shamrock is really three leafed. The true symbol of Ireland is the harp usually gold with silver strings but can be all silver or all gold. Daughters have theirs on chains which we bought in Ireland years ago. Erin Go Bragh.

    Well you are actually half right. It's a black and tan, Guiness and Harp's.

    This emoticon is the two beer mugs clinking, in case it doesn't translate across operating systems.

    Is that what cost the game last year? I borrowed that from the design of the ball run shirt last year. The 13 Company logo has a three leaf clover.

    The real Black and Tans were hated by the Irish. An old quote "If God had not created whiskey the Irish would rule the world".

    If you take time to notice the Guinness symbol is a Harp.
