    Green has always been symbolic for Ireland. When it comes to the flag the Green stands for nationalism, orange for unionism and white for peace between the two
    I see. And because the bishop Patrick was an Irish, the green is the colour of his day. Thanks for information. So, although it is celebrated in another countries too (as in America), St.Patrick's day is a national day if the Irish, right?

    Patrick actually wasn't irish. He was a slave boy in Ireland. We're actually not really sure where he came from. Probably Gaul.

    Yeah, it's a bank holiday in Ireland. It's our wee national holiday.

    On behalf of Ireland and Irish people, I apologise. People like that are idiots.

    haha thanks. Though gotten pretty used to their behaviour, it's any excuse to party with them.

    What, and there's absolutely no way you can come out of it early?

    nope, not without finding someone to replace me in my contract...which at this time of year is just not going to happen not to mention I'd also then have to find somewhere to live in a short period of time at a reasonable price and for a very short tenancy duration. All while revising and stressing over up coming exams.

    If you get to the logistics of it "just move" is stupid.

    It's pretty much common knowledge that you can't just get out of a tenancy agreement without finding someone to replace you on it.

    Err, no.....it isn't. There are numerous types of tenancy agreements, and the types that exist in Scotland, the relative terms and conditions associated can and do differ from England.

    well I'm not in Scotland and that user has spoken to me numerous times and knows I live in Liverpool, so why bring Scotland into this?

    If you don't like my posts ignore them.

    No, but even in England, there is substantial variations with the law, and tenancy agreements, so your assertion that its "common knowledge" is incorrect. Thats all.

    Your not a mod, so I am entirely free to do as I please, thanks.

    Well, telling someone that they quote:

    "People like you give disabled people a bad name over a hissy fit like this"

    definitely qualifies imo.

    Picking a fight over someone's dieting beliefs, qualifies. Insulting them about it, qualifies.

    Today is the 17th March, so....

    Happy St Patrick's Day! :woo:

    I refuse to use the leprechaun. Sorry.

    If you celebrate it, what are you getting up to today? Are you going to a local parade? If you're away from Ireland like me, what are you up to?

    I have class today, but I'm wearing my Ireland rugby top. I hope to avoid the terrible fake Irish accents going around campus.
    I'm not a ****ing irish so I do not celebrate it.
    And I am an atheist, I do not believe in "saints".

    Seriously?

    I meant every word of it, your attitude in that thread was appalling.

    Anyway that was months ago, why are you even bringing that up on this thread?
