St. Patricks Day

St Patrick's Day Friday, 17th March 2024
Irish people celebrate their patron saint on March 17, which is also known as Saint Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick. The holiday honours Saint Patrick and the introduction of Christianity to Ireland, as well as the rich cultural traditions of the Irish people. Public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the donning of green clothing or shamrocks are typical components of the festivities. The customary fasting and abstinence throughout Lent are suspended on this day, which has contributed to and strengthened the widespread drinking that characterises this celebration.
