Ceiluradh! // St. Patrick's Day + Fort Wayne

jkodonnels

I earn my living at an Irish Pub in downtown Fort Wayne.  J.K. O'Donnell's has been open and in operation for almost a decade now. Representing a wee bit of Ireland in Downtown Fort Wayne, it has been an humbling and honorable to join their family.

Just don't tell them my family's Scottish.

This wasn't my first time shooting for the pub. In January I provided some photos of dishes, cocktails, and wines for a local foods dinner. Then a few weeks later we hosted an outdoor beer festival highlighting dark brews fit for riders and kings in lands far to the north. Barrel-aged stouts, espresso beans brewed into a blissful abyss, and barley-wines reminiscent of cinnamon, cedar, and casked amontillado.

They honored me by asking me to take photos of ceiliuradh. That's Irish for celebration by the way. This was their seventh year. As luck would have it, it was an extraordinary event. St. Patrick himself would have been proud.
