** We know with the current issues surrounding the coronavirus that all parades and gatherings have been cancelled but we thought we share what happens in a number of cities across the globe when times arent as worrying**
It's no secret, us Irish are beloved in many cities across the globe.
If we're not cleaning up after ourselves in France during the Euro's, we're heading over and/or extending our visas to help the bushfire recovery in Australia or we are simply offering helpful advice and directions to visiting ex-pats here in Ireland. So, it's no wonder that Big 7 travel has voted Irelands Dublin and Cork to be in their top 50 of the friendliest cities in the world.
We Irish are known for many things, whether it be Guinness, the GAA, for being fond of a drink and having the craic and of course for our patron saint - St. Patrick (Paddy NOT Patty).
The Irish culture and its people are worldwide and beloved that St. Patricks day has become international and so big that other cities celebrate the day in their own way too.
ST. Patricks Day in Ireland
The day is mainly here to celebrate St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity to Ireland as well as celebrating our heritage and culture as a whole. Generally what happens on St. Patricks day is fun-filled parades, festivals, craft stalls, parties and céilís filled with smiles and excitement while trying your best to wear green or something that resembles the Irish flag.
Preparation for St. Patricks Day starts months in advance, groups from all over the world want to join in in the big Dublin Paddy's Parade.
We have BBQ's, drinks and sweets just to add to the festivities. The great thing is, everything isn't just in Dublin - many towns and villages across the country celebrate in their own unique way. No matter where you are, you will never be bored.
