There are few things Texans love touting more than the Lone Star State's mythic proportions. In the 1990s, tourism commercials went so far as to proudly profess, "Texas: It's like a whole other country." So it stands to reason that a land of such grand geographic girth and hearty self-image would enjoy claiming enclaves of actual other countries contained within its expansive borders. That's what you'll find on St. Patrick's Day in D-FW. Celebrate Ireland, its descendants and its indelible impact on the state's culture at happy-go-lucky events around North Texas.
