Let’s Go Green! St Patrick’s Day Drogheda!

Today is St Patrick’s Day ! St Patrick’s Day is the patron saint of Ireland and renowned for bringing Christianity to Ireland. Today celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, music and wearing of green attire or shamrocks. St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.


A Friday St. Patrick’s Day is rare

Don’t let this be the year that you decide to stay in. As St. Patrick’s Day is on a set calendar day (March 17) the actual day of the week it lands on changes with every year. The next Friday-landing St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t come around again until 2023.


There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were.
