Return to Irish

St. Patrick’s Day

A celebration of the most important festival in Ireland with traditional Irish music, food, even dance, and of course a bit of history.

Originally introduced to celebrate the death of the patron saint of Ireland it is nowadays taken as an opportunity to celebrate everything Irish – from Leprechauns and lucky charms, rugby, Guinness and the colour green to the Irish soul and independence.
