Saint Patrick’s Day is an Irish cultural and religious celebration. Originally a feast day in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, March 17th has evolved to become a worldwide celebration of Irish culture. With Saint Patrick’s Day approaching, we thought it would be interesting to examine the man behind today’s high-spirited festivities. For without Saint Patrick, March 17th would be like any other day!
The Ireland Project is the journey of two friends and their experiences of visiting the towns and villages across Ireland from where their families hail. We plan to take you along on our journey to off-the-beaten-track places to eat, drink, visit — the places locals might frequent — revealing a different side to Ireland.
