The Irish in Norway
According to Statistics Norway, there are 621 Irish citizens in Norway. We know the real number is much higher, for a couple of reasons: firstly, many children of Irish and Norwegian parents are not included; and secondly, we have a time-honoured practice of counting as Irish those who want to be Irish, or who have an interest in Ireland. And when it comes to Patricks Day, if you are wearing something green, you are in. We are not really very exclusive.
