SAINTS ALIVE!

Olga Fahey | 17 Mar, 2014

As far as celebrations go, St Patrick’s Day commemorated on the 17th March every year, is one way to truly appreciate the Irish craic, with parades and revelry taking place across Ireland.

In fact, the Paddy’s Day spirit journeys much further around the world; famously turning many iconic world landmarks green, including, the East River in Brooklyn, the Sydney Opera House, the Tower of Pisa and the White house fountain. It is even celebrated with parades as far away as Russia and Japan.

This year the atmosphere in Dublin is more electric than ever, as Ireland's Six Nations rugby showdown in Paris on Saturday kicked off the festivities early, bringing the Emerald Isle and the Irish nation even more cause for celebration when they won the RBS 6 Nations title after beating France 22-20. Yesterday the Irish rugby team arrived home to a rapturous welcome in Dublin and for Brian O'Driscoll it was a fairytale ending to his international career.

If this news has whetted your appetite for rugby viewing it’s not too late to book with ITC Sports Travel who offer bespoke luxury packages to many sporting events, along with hospitality packages to the upcoming Rugby Autumn Internationals.

I was lucky enough to have been in Dublin at the weekend…Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stood proudly, all lit up in green, and there was even more revelers and good humour than usual, which is impressive as this is a city that knows how to throw a great party!

So to anyone celebrating today, lá sona naomh Pádraig, enjoy the craic and Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
