But one courthouse visitor, Norristown lawyer James W. Flood, showed the most Irish spirit when he appeared on the courthouse plaza outside the Main Street entrance at lunchtime to play a few tunes on his bagpipes.
"It's St. Patrick's Day so I want to spread the joy of the bagpipes to all those who like to listen to it, and a few that don't like to listen to it," Flood joked as a brisk, late winter wind howled outside.
The clouds overhead and the wind kept most people inside the courthouse but a few employees on lunch breaks stopped to listen and applauded Flood's Irish effort.

Flood, whose law office is located at One East Airy Street, said while he won't be playing bagpipes he will be marching in Montgomery County's St. Patrick's Day Parade, which was postponed, due to rain, until March 28.
Kudos to Flood for taking the time to spread a little Irish cheer.
