I'm a single malt fan that has tried a few Irish whiskies, though haven't found one in the affordable range that I thought had the depth and "gravitas" of a Scottish malt. Thought for St. Patrick's Day I'd pick up a bottle of something appropriate. I like Redbreast and Jameson 12 pretty well, but is there something in a similar price range I should try? I've heard Bushmills 12 highly spoken of - any advice?

You must be my long lost distant cousin from across the pond. I have not tried the Bushmills 12, but if liked the Redbreast then I would suggest you try Irelands other pure pot still, Green Spot, which in my opinion is the better of the two.
Wishing you a very happy St Patrick's Day.
Cooley have some nice ones, but they're a little expensive. If you can get an independent bottled Cooley at cask strength, generally they're very good.
I've read about Green Spot, but don't think it's available over here, at least not in this area. Someday...
I saw a "John L. Sullivan" Irish whiskey recently, named after a legendary boxer. The one review I found was positive, and for 20-some dollars it looks like a good value.
Thanks for the suggestion, Aidan. I'll see what's available here.
