Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit! (that’s Irish for Happy St Patrick’s Day To You!) ☘️

Celebrated on the 17th March every year on the anniversary of his death, St. Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture. At 16 years old, St. Patrick was brought to Ireland as a slave. Later in his life he escaped, and when he returned, he brought Christianity to the people of Ireland. Today, St Patrick is held as the patron saint of Ireland and the Irish have acknowledged this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years.

Although, St Patrick’s Day is celebrated across the world with parades and celebrations as far as the USA, Canada, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand gaining global media coverage, there is no better place to celebrate than the very home of St Patrick himself.

The Irish hold a tradition of wearing a shamrock to celebrate Saint Patrick which dates from the seventeenth century.
