If you are of Irish extraction or live in what (perhaps only traditionally) is a big Irish area do you remember?

I remember bits of tricolour ribbon perhaps with gold harps on. These would be pinned to you lapel or jumper with a clump of shamrock that had been posted to you in boxes from Ireland.

Just thinking as the Welsh wear daffodils or leeks for St David's I've not seen this practice on St Patrick's Day for over 30 years.

Anyone any remembrance of seeing or doing this.
