Saint Patrick’s Day, 17th March 2015

St. Patrick’s Day has become one of the most popular Irish bank holidays since it was acknowledged under the Bank Holiday (Ireland) Act 1903. It commemorates one of the patron saints of Ireland and is celebrated on the 17th March, the day Saint Patrick passed away.

St. Patrick’s Day is also a bank holiday in Northern Ireland, UK. Parades are held both north of the border in Belfast and Londonderry, and south of the border in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick, and Waterford. Saint Patrick was buried in 493 AD in Downpatrick in Northern Ireland and this is where you can¬†experience the biggest celebrations.

Join in the celebrations at your nearest Irish pub and put on the Irish colours, green, white and gold……… Go and see a parade and have a pint of Guinness. Rather than a church event, St. Patrick’s Day celebrates Irish culture and it is so popular, it is remembered all over the world.
