The countdown has begun...
first Saint Patrick ’s Day. I thought it was fascinating to see not only Irish people, but also people from all over the world gathering together to celebrate everything that have to do with being Irish.
What I find most fascinating about the whole celebration is the colours, the hat’s, the leprechaun’s, the shamrock’s, the Irish flags everywhere, the Celtic letters and the manifestation of being Irish to the core. Those colours have embraced me in such an Irish way that I honestly feel I have a little bit of green in my blood.
Usually on the day I am hangover, celebrating from the day before, in true Irish style. This year, for a change, I will be working, but I will record the parade to try to be part of excitement. I can’t wait to see the streets of the whole country covered in green.
Like previous years, a number of iconic Dublin landmarks will go green at 6pm each evening from Saturday, March 14 until Tuesday, March 17. Buildings changing colour include The Guinness Storehouse, Connolly Station, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the National Museum of Ireland.
The main event of the celebrations, the St Patrick’s Festival Parade gets underway at 12pm on Tuesday,
There will be plenty to see and enjoy. It will be an event to remember and I hope you can enjoy yourself.
Have a Great & Happy St. Patrick’s Day
