March 2002

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this month’s whimsical cover is a painting by Melissa Pelletier of Ireland’s Mine Head Lighthouse. An example of the earliest megalithic tombs in Ireland can be found near the lighthouse. However, that last time leprechauns were spotted near the lighthouse was in 1973 just before the last keepers were removed from the station.
