St. Patrick’s day in Ireland is a time of great traditions and customs, some going back hundreds of years and some more recent. We celebrate St Patrick’s Day on the 17th of March every year and it is always a public holiday, so no work or school. While in the past, St Patrick’s day in Ireland would have been a deeply religious affair, in recent years it has become more of a celebration of Ireland, our culture, heritage and traditions.
