Shamrock Shortage

As St. Patrick's Day approaches, botanist Dr. Declan Doogue of the Royal Irish Academy says that there may not be enough shamrocks for the celebration!
The shamrock was “hit hard” by the severe winter weather and “won’t be easily found” this week, said Doogue, who also stated the national plant was under threat because of modern farming methods.

In its place, bogus shamrock plants are being used, he said, stating that he hoped the shamrock that President Obama would receive from Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen would be the real thing.

If worse comes to worst, Irish people who want the real thing may have to use shamrocks from England. Link -via J-Walk Blog
