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.
# IRISH SAYING
There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were.
Saint Patrick didn’t wear that much green
His official colour was “Saint Patrick’s blue”. Though when green became associated with the late 18th century Irish independence movement, it was also incorporated into Saint Patrick himself.
Saint Patrick wasn’t actually Irish
While St. Patrick is famous for being a patron saint of Ireland, evidence points to him having actually been born in what is now considered Wales.
But anyway have fun and enjoy yourselves!
We really did enjoyed Drogheda St.Patrick's Day Parade this year. Weather wasn't the greatest but we got most of it. It was great to see so many local people, Drogheda photographers and a lot of happy faces..
For us it is important to be part of this great Drogheda Town and the community. We are really looking for the next events to capture!
We photographed and filmed St. Patrick's Parade here in Drogheda :
