Since today happens to be St Patrick's Day and because I was reviewing some
Humbul records anyway here is a fairly random selection of web sites
catalogued in Humbul's database with some relevance to Irish Studies. The
URL of the site itself is listed together with a link to the descriptive
record in Humbul.
