St Patrick's Day Festival

No reviews, be the first!

Yes, the day of green beer is growing closer, the day of the year when all of Ireland goes crazy for their patron Saint Patrick, he who rid the country of snakes and made it the green and pleasant haven it is today. March 17th, put it in your diary, if it’s not already there. In Dublin, the city holds a major festival from March 16th to 20th. This includes a parade on March 17th which this year has the theme of How? What? Why? in line with Dublin being the City of Science 2012.

Marching bands from Ireland, the UK, Russia and the USA will add music to the pageantry which begins at noon at Parnell Square and finishes near St Patrick’s Cathedral.
