Many folks enjoy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day each year. March 17, 461 AD is the date of death of Saint Patrick, a fifth-century Irish missionary and patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to Irish pagans. The colour green has long been associated with the celebration.

St. Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in Ireland and a provincial holiday in one Canadian province, Newfoundland and Labrador.

As the saying goes, “There are two kinds of people, those who are Irish and those who wish they were.”

Irish humour for the day: Many a time a man’s mouth broke his nose.” Irish proverb

“What do you call an Irishman who keeps bouncing off walls? Rick O’Shea.”

“Pubs The official sunblock of Ireland.”
