Kilts aren't particularly Irish, though they have occasionally shown up in the late 1800s. You can keep it in the drawer until the Scottish Games.

Too bad the Dublin festival banned the Irish Wolfhound. Such a great addition to the past festivals. Love looking at those historic Irish dogs. Sure are welcomed in SF and Ireland.
