It's St. Patrick's Day on Wednesday, March 17th -- and all those green outfits, tinted pints of beer, and renditions of "Danny Boy" have us thinking about one of the great soaps of all time, Ryan's Hope. The 1975-89 show centered around the Ryan family -- Irish immigrant Maeve, her beloved husband Johnny, and their kids: reporter Mary, cop Siobhan, doctor Pat, and politician Frank (we're not forgetting about Kathleen, but she was basically never on). Along with the extended family and friends (like schemers Delia Reid and Roger Coleridge, his upstanding sister Jillian, and man's man Jack Fenelli), the Ryans provided a grounded, realistic portrayal of a working class Irish-American family.
So with that stroll down memory lane, why don't you see if you have the luck o' the Irish and match up with your favorite Ryan's Hope character. Take our "Which Ryan Are You?" quiz now.
And don't forget -- you can still catch Ryan's Hope on SOAPnet every weekday from 5AM to 6AM (don't worry ... if you're not up at that hour, that's what DVRs are for!).
