Irish Up North

On a previous visit to northern Minnesota I had noticed a building with a sign as Gaeilge ("in Irish") in Cloquet. I saw it again as I drove home from Deer River Sunday evening. It is the Cailín Deas ("pretty girl") hair salon. I told my fellow Irish students about this in class last night, as Gaeilge, and everybody was pleased.
