St. Patrick's Day, 1979 Message of the President.

March 15, 1979

St. Patrick's Day brings out all of the innate warmth, goodness and joy of living that Irish people have brought to this land. It joins us all in celebration of a legacy that is a vital part of our national character and way of life.

Rosalynn and I welcome this annual opportunity to greet our fellow citizens of Irish ancestry and to share in the sentiments of countless others who become Irish on this special day.
