Happy Saint Patrick's Day, 2021 -- March 17, 2021


Kentucky Irish American, 20-March-1921

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, everyone.

This editorial cartoon says that if Saint Patrick were in Ireland in 1921, he would have had a new set of snakes to expel. The first snake represents David Lloyd George, the Prime Minister of Great Britain. The second snake may represent Unionist politician Edward Carson, who was opposed to independence. The third snake represents the Black and Tans, a Unionist constabulary which committed many acts of violence during the Irish War of Independence.
