ST PATRICK’S DAY FESTIVAL – did you know?

  • St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was actually born in Wales
  • It is believed that St Patrick used the shamrock to teach Christianity to the pagan Irish.
  • St Patrick’s Day parade was first held in New York City in 1966.
  • St Patrick’s Day is Ireland’s national holiday and is celebrated on March 17 every year.
  • Associated with St Patrick’s Day, a tiny fairy leprechaun is one of Ireland’s best known good luck symbols.
