About St Patrick’s Day
17th of March is St Patrick’s Day, a wonderful day filled with Irish heritage, art, music, culture, beer, whiskey and most importantly CRAIC (An old Irish word for having fun and not taking yourself too seriously).
The day itself commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. In normal times the celebrations would generally involve public parades and festivals, céilís, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.
This year it looks a little different but you will never break the spirit of the Irish and we will still be celebrated in wonderful ways such as the Sláinte Festival.
