St Patricks Day – All the luck of the Irish

The celebration of St Patricks Day has been going on for centuries, and ever since it was officially acknowledged as a a Christian feast day in the 17th Century, when the restrictions on drink and alcohol during Lent were lifted, it is synonymous with a great time, and is celebrated in Irish bars and restaurants across the globe on the 17th March. Often it is depicted by the 4 leaf clover in reference to the luck of the Irish, however, the real story is that St Patrick would use the 3 leaf shamrock to explain the holy trinity to non-Christians.
