The Luck of the (NYC-based) Irish

If you were in New York City and environs today and someone handed you a book, we hope you remembered to say Go raibh maith agate. (To which the giver might have replied, “You’re welcome.”) The Irish Arts Center solves the mystery:
In partnership with Speaker Christine Quinn and the New York City Council, Irish Arts Center will celebrate the inaugural Irish Arts Center Book Day on St. Patrick’s Day 2011! Keep an eye out for Book Day volunteers handing out books by Irish and Irish American authors, free, at subway stops and transportation hubs across all five boroughs, and be in the know on Book Day locations during the day by following our up-to-the-minute Twitter and Facebook updates. Books will be handed out starting at 6:00 am until we run out!
Sadly, the book supplies ran out around 3:00 pm local time, but the city is the richer for it.

To which we say: Tá leabhar agat.
