St Patrick’s Day is upon us…
The first St Patrick’s Festival was held on 17 March 1996. In 1997, it became a three-day event, and by 2000 it was a four-day event. By 2006, the festival was five days long…
Here are three events that should see you through the weekend that are all inspired by St.Patirck himself.
