Beannachtaí Lá Fhéile Pádraig Daoibh – tabhair dom an rud céanna atá ag an fhear ar an urlár!
(Blessings of St Patrick’s Day to you – give me the same as the man on the floor!)
If you’re short of decent drinks today (i.e. there’s no firewater in the house), here’s how to make Irish coffee and an Irish Car Bomb. In between stumbling through Beyond the Black Stump, of course. Some of those characters can really drink – hehehe
Amazingly, many people celebrating St Patrick’s Day don’t know the real meaning of the celebrations. 60% of people attending the Manchester Irish Festival did not know who St Patrick is. In Ireland, everyone attends a Gaelic church service on 17th March, then they go out drinking. It’s strange how things get translated across cultures and lose so much of their original meaning.
