Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- March 2, 2012

It's March! That means St Patrick's Day -- something special here in the Northeast. Several members of the SilverStringers -- publishers of the Melrose Mirror -- put their hand-in, in cooking up the best Irish bread possible. This happens to be Publisher Louise Fennell's effort. Ummm, looks so good! See bread recipes at the bottom.
