St Patricks Day

Where: Countrywide
When: 17th March
Time: All day


St Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and his festival is always celebrated on this date, particularly in areas with links to Ireland or by people with Irish ancestry or connections. It has grown in popularity in the UK in recent years with widespread pub-based events involving Guinness consumption and often fancy-dress; special greetings cards are available  if you hunt around.Expect plenty of shamrocks and leprechauns!
